Just an update for anyone else who was having issues with Maschine working with Cubase 8.
Well, I’ve had my Maschine Mikro MK2 and the Maschine 2 software for a couple of months now and unfortunately, it’s given me nothing but trouble within Cubase Pro 8. Even after the update, Maschine is still crashing when used as a VST. Sometimes straight away. Sonmetimes after 15 minutes or so. Sometimes the freezei s so bad that Ctrl/Alt/Delete/End Program (Cubase not responding) doesn’t work and I have to pull the plug. Never a good idea!! Maybe it’s my computer spec (see sig), maybe Cubase 8 doesn’t like Maschine. I don’t know…and I’m tired of trying to get them to play nice with each other.
It’s not ideal, but thankfully, I still have Cubase 6.5 installed and it Maschine works ok with it so far…I can use it as a VST instrument to lay down the drums and record the Midi into Cubase…I can also do the same with Maschines Instruments and can also switch to Midi mode and all works as expected. Obviously, having upgraded to C8, I’d rather be using that, but at the moment, I’m composing in C6.5, then mixing the audio stems in C8.
In hindsight, (personally of course) I think I should have gone for a Korg PadKontrol as I didn’t want to use the Maschine software as my sequencer…I wanted to continue to use Cubase.
Anyhow, I really hope you’re all getting on ok and those of you that had problems have found solutions
