To be honest, I'm not a big fan of putting so many plugins in it.

Often fails to open. Yesterday was massive and couldn't be opened

Today it became that Reaktor could not be opened again.

How to solve?

    Is it Reaktor Player or Reaktor full version? In full version it's better to open an ens file instead of .rkplr

    Hello there,

    Can you load Prism in Reaktor standalone ? Can you open Massive in standalone ?

    Are you running Maschine as administrator ?

    Enable the software to run as administrator

    Note: The following procedure requires MASCHINE 2.6.9 (or higher).

    1. Ensure that your MASCHINE controller is disconnected and that neither the MASCHINE software nor any other Native Instruments or audio applications are running.
    2. Right-click on the MASCHINE 2 shortcut and select Properties.
    1. In the Properties window, click on Advanced in the Shortcut tab.
    1. Enable the option Run as administrator in the Advanced Properties menu and confirm with OK.
    1. Click on Apply and then OK to confirm and leave the Properties
    2. Note: Depending on your Windows Account Settings, you may receive a warning message. In this case, click on Continue to confirm the changes.

    Now MASCHINE will always start with administrator rights, ensuring that the connection between the hardware and the software is established.

    I can turn on massive

    What is Prism?

    @swingmix Prism is a Reaktor based instrument so try opening Reaktor in stand alone first then load it directly there.

    Actually I don't like so many others in MASCHINE.

    It feels like promoting a product.

    I'm not sure to understand what you mean. Reaktor Player is free, if you own Maschine, you get Prism and some other ensembles and synths you can use, you only need to have the Reaktor Player installed. Maybe this will explain it better: KOMPLETE 13 - All Products Demystified
