Is there a way to switch focus from Maschine Plus to KK S88 in the same instance of Maschine 2?
I'm on a brand new Mac Pro (Big Sur OS), all my software is up to date. Using HDX Pro Tools Ultimate. I'm trying to use my Maschine Plus to lay down drums in Maschine Plug-in. After that, I would like to switch to the next scene/group in the same instance of Maschine and lay down piano sounds etc with my KK S88.
Is there a way to switch focus from one device to the other in the same instance of maschine? I've gone to the controller part of maschine menu and it shows both devices checked, (they also show as active in Pro Tools MIDI Preferences). the instruments show up on both device screens, but only Maschine Plus will play anything. (sometimes the other way around. It's obviously confused on what is controlling it.) The S88 shows the instrument is loaded and keys change color, but no sound. Also the instrument CAN still be heard on the Maschine plus pads. I dont need them there though, I need to play them on the S88. of I browse the sounds on the s88, I can hear the previews just fine.
When I go to hardware under Maschine Preferences, it's either set on Maschine Plus, or blank and if I bring up S88 in Maschine Preferences, there are no options in the menu at all. It's just a blank screen with a close button.
Do I possibly need to put s88 in MIDI mode and have it just be a dummy keyboard controller, and let Machine plus do the browsing? It seems like this might be the answer, but I can't find anything that's written basic enough for me to understand how to set the S88 up like that.
I have read a lot of things but I can't find anything that is step by step, on how to do this....(or if it's even what I need to do to make it happen.)
If anyone has any ideas, please let me know. I don't need the S88 to be in control of browsing or any of that, I just need it to play the piano/key/bass sounds, and be able to switch between Maschine Plus and s88 in the same instance of the Maschine Plug-in.
I'm a 20 year experienced pro tools user for traditional recording, but I've only recently been trying to work with MIDI. I'm having trouble finding anything basic enough to explain how the CC assignments work. Thanks for your patience.
…and lastly, is this integration of the 2 devices simply not possible, and does that mean I always have to have one of them completely disconnected? Will I then need to restart protools if I want to use the other controller?
