"I don't use traktor so not sure how you'd sync them other than midi clock. You can set scenes to be triggered via midi or program change so maybe you could use trigger pads from traktor to trigger your scenes?"

 After returning my Maschine because it didnt work on my computer (out of date OS) Im now back with a black Maschine studio after being with an MPC (in one form or another) for over 20 years.

Best Move I Made - This instrument is phenominal!!!

The more I ponder on it my thoughts are the mikro is the best option for me.... The size and price point are a good fit for me right now. Thanks for the feedback St. Joe

Thank you!!!! I hope to learn some things here!!!!! The first question to be answered is which iteration of Maschine do I get I can grab Mikro because the price point is easier but I wonder how much am I giving up but getting this opposed to getting Maschine.

hey st joe,

i'm just getting acquainted via iMaschine, can you record FX repeats and any automation or is that a job for the real maschine?

thanks paul

Thx SaintJoe,

At the end of the day the MK2 was meant for live performance rather than to be used as a straight out studio recorder so the best way for my application is to use it in Controller Mode and then "drag" the finished pattern/groove into Logic or any other DAW. Thats no big problem i just thought that it could also be used as a midi pad. As the full name of this piece of hardware is Maschine MK2 "Groove Production Studio" I will now treat it as such. How I'm setting this up now is with the Battery 3 plugin which gives me a huge library of indivual instruments for each pad (the latin percusiion instruments in MK2 are limited to 2, Conga and Bongo) as I  mainly work the Latin Genre. I then load Battery 3 in Logic and bingo I have the perfect solution. Also If I want to create a bass groove then I would load up a bass plugin in same way and then "drag" to Logic. In this configuaration I can get the best "feel" and response from the PADS which is the whole intention of an external hardware item. Anyway you have a wonderful holiday season if we dont chat before then. That is hoping the WORLD doesn't end on the 12/21/2012!! HaHa

Hi SaintJoe,

Now that I know which is Midi/controller mode the problem is that the pads are still not responding in MIDI mode as good as when it is in Controller Mode. This is regardless of how the sensitive settings are set up in Mido mode. They are just NOT the same. Could it be an audio return problem or a Midi return problem?

At 12:16am on November 19, 2012, Pino Mastroieni said…

So I had it the other way around all along, ha. Now I see why. However why do the pads lose sensitivity? They respond much better in Maschine Mode, in fact you can set the pads so sensitive that you only have to feather touch them to respond and they respond along the full square where as in MIDI mode (i'm learning) you have to be spot on the centre to get a good responce and even then its not as precise as in Maschine Mode. Thats why I thought that it was the other way around re the different modes.

At 11:26pm on November 18, 2012, Pino Mastroieni said…

Having said all that why bother Midi Mode, controller mode whatever mode. This thing is just a Groove creator (a drum machine) thats it. So i'll just use it for what it is and NOT for what NI thinks it is and then I'll just DRAG the midi data into logic. Vala! The fact that you can load Audio Samples into it is not relevant. Anyway you have a wonderful time with it!

At 11:17pm on November 18, 2012, Pino Mastroieni said…

Thanks for your input but i disagree that MMK2 is NOT sending Midi.  This is what I do:

  1. Open Logic
  2. Create Software Instrument Track
  3. Load Machine plugin
  4. Load Drum Kit
  5. Maschine then lights up in MIDI mode and group A lights up
  6. I play the pads and there is SOUND (audio)
  7. There is NO MIDI going to logic - you are correct!
  8. I switch over to Controller Mode and there is NO MIDI
  9. I then press PAD E and bingo THERE IS MIDI going to LOGIC!
  10. The pads lose sensitivity but I can record the Midi notes
  11. The reason why MMK2 sends midi out on Pad E is because the root note is C3 but the root note on pad A is C-1.

If you have the time please check out this video where you will see  with your own eyes that He is in MIDI mode and Logic is recording in this mode.

And by the way, why in heavens name after 30 years since MIDI would a company put out an instrument that DOES NOT send Midi in MIDI MODE!!! Why call it MIDI Mode? Beyond belief.
