I use NI Maschine 2.13.0 software as a vst in my Cubase 11 Pro (latest update). I set Cubase to repeat a loop of 1 bar. Maschine software listens to cubase and loops the same bar. I put midi notes on every beat of that bar inside Maschine software . The problem - My Maschine software does not trigger the first note of the loop/the note which sits next to the left locator. “Quantize” and “Grid lock” are set to on on both Cubase and Maschine - so that note does not extend before the beginning of the loop. In Cubase, the loop starts exactly at the beginning of that bar, NOT later (Quantize and grid lock is on)!
Is this a Cubase problem or a NI Maschine software problem? I just bought a new Maschine MK3 and if I cannot use the “Step” sequencer to insert midi notes on the fly in Cubase, I think that I will have to send it back and ask for a refund.
I recorded a video and I uploaded it on my google drive account, to clearly let you see what I am talking about. Unfortunately this forum does not let me add the link
Please try to recreate the situation and share your thoughts.
Does Cubase skip (an internal bug?) the first milliseconds of the loop, thus Maschine software does not notice the start of that midi note, or does Maschine software push that midi note to a position before the start of the loop/the bar where the Cubase loop starts?
I hope that I can get an answer soon enough, so in case the problem cannot be solved, I will be able to send the Maschine MK3 back and ask for a refund. Thanks!
