Can NI Maschine Mikro MK3 trigger

Any Native instruments Maschine Mikro Mk3 users here? I've been seeing a few complaints about the Mikro MK3, that it can't be used as a midi controller, but then I see information about a midi mode? So I'm left a bit confused.

​I'm thinking about getting a Mikro Mk3 so I can play around with the sample library and produce some quick beats using the Maschine software but I'd also like the option of using it as a pad controller and triggering other VSTs ( Non NI) like Swarplug or Wizoo Darbuka latigo or Elastik or Kontakt

Could I theoretically use the mikro MK3 to trigger say, a drum kit in Kontakt for example? Is it easy to adjust the midi information that each pad piece sends? Or is this just not possible as per some reports? I was thinking of getting an MKII instead if it couldn't do this.

Hope someone can clear up my confusion pls.

Controller Editor added support for Mk3 Mikro fairly recently. Before that midi assignment was fixed.
