With the MASCHINE+ USB ports on the back of the device, it is possible to connect a wide variety of class-compliant MIDI and audio devices. This includes the entire range of KOMPLETE AUDIO interfaces, the KOMPLETE KONTROL M32, and other third-party devices.
In theory, so long as the device is class-compliant, it should be detected by MASCHINE+ and function immediately.
