Since MASCHINE 1.8.1 and CONTROLLER EDITOR 1.5.1, Native Instruments has introduced the new Host Transport Control feature. When MASCHINE is running as a plug-in in a host sequencer, you can split the control elements on your controller so that the transport buttons control your sequencer via MIDI while all other control elements still control the MASCHINE plug-in instance. Please check the MASCHINE MK2 Reference Manual for more information. The Reference Manual is located in the Documentation folder within the MASCHINE programm folder on your system hard drive.
In order to use the new Host Transport Control feature within Logic 9, please follow these steps:
- Launch Logic 9 and insert MASCHINE as an instrument plug-in.
- Open the CONTROLLER EDITOR application.
- In the CONTROLLER EDITOR, load a Mackie Control template by clicking on the Edit button and selecting it.
- Enable Host Transport Control
- Go to the Logic 9 Preferences and select Control Surfaces followed by Setup
- In the Setup window, click on New and select Install
- In the Manufacturer field, select Mackie Designs and under Model select Mackie Control. Under Module choose Logic Control. Confirm your selection by clicking the Add button
- Open the Input Port menu. If you are using the MASCHINE MK1 controller please select Maschine Controller Virtual Input
If you are using the MASCHINE MK2 controller please choose Maschine MK2 Virtual Input
- Close the Setup window. You can now use the Host Transport Mode to control Logic 9's transport with the MASCHINE Controller
Please note: In MASCHINE mode, the Erase, Restart, Step (Left/Right)functions are not available.
