Sound Issues with Maschine Software when used as a Plug-In

edited February 28 in Maschine

I have been using Maschine as a plug-in in Logic for many years.

For the past several months, however, an issue has developed when using either the sampler or when loading any Native Instruments sampled instrument into Maschine, particularly Kontakt instruments.

If I am recording, or playing back recorded Midi, the sound either drops out before individual notes are played completely, becomes garbled or both. If, however, I bounce the recorded Midi to audio, the resulting audio track plays fine. This problem does not happen when either using a Native Instruments synth or any third-party instrument loaded into Maschine. And, it does not happen with the Maschine software opened in standalone. There is undoubtedly something going on with the audio when using the sampler or sampled NI instruments when Logic is active either while recording or while listening.

    @JSR25 And what if you load Kontakt instruments in Kontakt in Logic? Any issues there? Are your Kontakt libraries installed on an external hard drive? What format is that drive?

    Is it an Intel or M1 Mac?

    Do Logic, Maschine and Kontakt all have Full Disk Access? How to Enable Full Disk Access on macOS

    Does it make a difference if the track is armed or not in Logic?

    Can you post a screenshot of your Audio Preferences -> General in Logic?

    Kontakt instruments work fine if loaded directly in Logic. No issues at all there. The libraries are not on an external drive.

    Its an Intel -- 3.6 GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i7

    Typically, the sound has been fine if Logic is not armed either to begin recording or to playback Midi.

    I granted full disk access to all NI applications. Nothing has changed.
