Monthly leaderboard prizes
Answer the most questions in the community for a chance to win vouchers for Native Instruments products every month!
Help & earn points
Making music is all about exchanging ideas and experiences (plus, let's face it, occasional workarounds). And it's what makes our community truly great. Every day, we've got thousands of devoted members scanning the forum day and night getting people to dive deeper into their NI gear. And we want to make sure you know how much we appreciate all your hard work.
From April, 2023 onwards, we'll be giving away 100 USD/EUR, 50 USD/EUR, and 25 USD/EUR (or local currency equivalent) e-vouchers to be used on our web shop to the top 3 contributors at the end of each month.
Note that these vouchers are not valid on items that are already discounted. But exclusively for superstar members, you can use these vouchers on software/hardware as well as updates/upgrades.
It's a chance for anyone and everyone in the community to get a discount on our products, and sharpen your skills along the way.
How to be top contributors
Accepted Answer is the most important contribution that you can offer. When you write a reply on someone's thread, and they feel like your reply is a valid solution, they'll mark your reply as Answer ✔️. This gives you 3 points.
Likes and Insightfuls received on your posts and comments are other examples of community contribution, but they will not be weighed as heavily as your Accepted Answer.
Here are more details on how many points each activity is worth.
Where to see a leaderboard
To check the monthly leaderboard and see points needed to get to the top, just go to your profile. A leadboard is displayed in the bottom right corner. The points are refreshed on the first day of the month, every month.
How to find questions to answer
Unanswered Questions is always a great place to start.
You can also find all threads posted in the community on the Discussions page, and look for ones that are not yet tagged with Answered ✔️ to chime in.
Threads that are tagged with Answered are threads that receive replies already but none are marked as Accepted Answer by the OP, so they're still open for contributions.
Or, let's say you're a MASCHINE expert. You can use the search feature to conduct very specific searches that will only show the threads where you can offer insight.
When will the winners be announced
On the first week of the month, the 3 highest scoring contributors will be announced here on the online community. If you're the lucky one, you'll get a DM from one of the admins.
Good luck everyone!

Thank you guys for doing this.4
This is a great initiative and definitely something I intend to use.3
hope to contribute2
I guess this will incentivise a lot of us to check-in here first rather than going to Reddit, YouTube and Facebook which have some of the most helpful loyal and engaged Maschine communities I’ve come across.3
I hope this becomes a great resource for contributors3
That's cool! But I'm new to music😅1

PLEASE: to all users
Don’t start giving casual answers just trying to win a prize. Answer questions you DO KNOW the answer to.
The forum is already full of wrong answers, some of them even marked as Accepted Answer. It can happen to be convinced to know something and then discover things are different. But answers like “I never used a Komplete Kontrol keyboard but I give you an answer anyway” will just mess up the search of useful informations.
Let’s try to make this NI attempt to make users help each others be prolific, and not just a race to win a prize7
This is very nice suggestions and I am sure it will be helpful for growth for musicians and producers. Just reading the answers can give great information and knowledge that are hard to find anywhere, surely. Actually as a NI Komplete user, I sometimes at a loss trying to get information about the devices, and this will be a great way to find what I need. And I could be helpful for someone in the community. And what is more, there are emojis here. 😍1
Happy to see you all are on board with this. 🥺
And yes let's help keep an eye on wrong answers being marked as Accepted Answer. Feel free to ping or DM me if you want me to remove it.5

The best Answer does not always equate to a code solution. Sometimes extra code (editing the Windows registry) or further OS-type changes can often lead to desired results for many. This should be tested by the NI-teams and glean further recognition even if the end-user does not understand, therefore cannot test or reply as best answer.
The developers need to be apart of this innitiative also. We need to bridge the gap.
Gamifying the forum is one thing, but really actioning the brilliant requests that could be included in a software update is another. Lets make sure a developer can review each idea, (RESPOND & be a part of the community) and steer us on the right track as we move foward. We need this input. And we need bug fixes sooner. NI take way too long to action simple requests. Let's fast track this by having a dedicated developer who can respond back as we suggest and make it LIVE!2
