    Hey MAT,

    No you can't, only the ones provided within Maschine standalone, you can find a list of included products that will be in the standalone Maschine Plus:

    Plus other products that you can load in the desktop version of the Maschine software:

    Thank you! I have the maschine+ but I thought because of having Kontakt on the maschine, maybe it's possible :)

    Is there a similar expansion board with a good piano?

    Yes I have seen this, but that doesn't help me. I need a simple expansion board with piano sounds. Load and play 😁

    Usually I'm working with Adobe Audition. Now that I have the Maschine+ with all the software (including "the gentleman") I'm figuring out how to use it.. sorry 🙄

    If you really want to use a particular piano VST in standalone mode on the M+, you could always use Maschine’s auto sampler to build a multi sampled instrument of the exact VST piano you want to use. I might actually try to do that this weekend, I’ll post an update with the multi sampled instrument if I do. You can read more about the auto-sampler here:

    I've seen a tutorial about it ( but forgot everything :). That is a good idea and yes, keep me informed!

    The auto sampler is amazing, there are some very straightforward videos on youtube on how to do it.

    @MAT

    Came back to say that you can get pianos in Maschine+ standalone if they are in the Kontakt .nki format. I have several really nice pianos that I use this way. Just browse and download them from this site (you'll need to make an account first but it's free) and then you'll copy the folder to your User Content folder on the Maschine+. These obviously won't have the same level of parameters as an official kontakt library/instrument but they sound good and do the job, plus they are free!

    Is M+ capable to provide enough polyphony for such task? Please correct me if i'm wrong but as i remember its only max 64 note for single sampler instance, which IMHO is not quite enough for normal playing especially when sustain pedal is applied.

    Never heard of such a restriction, but would love to know the source.

    However, using Kontakt on the M+ is generally going to push it, therefore a sample based Maschine Instrument or auto-sampled instrument would be more suitable.

    @ozon Its controlled by Knob 1 in Sampler and 64 is a maximum value. Dont know anything about Kontakt polyphony though...

    The autosampler is a sicko! LOVE IT!

    Ok, thanks. I completely misunderstood your question, because I expected it to be related to Kontakt.

    The 64 note polyphony is a restriction which also applies to the Maschine 2 application, isn’t it? How much Sampler polyphony the M+ can handle needs to be tested, I guess (but wouldn’t know how to do it scientifically).

    Hey peeps! I was using Claustrophobic piano and some other "external" Kontakt instruments in the M+.

    What I've noticed is that after saving and closing the project, when I open it again, the Kontakt instruments somehow lose the sounds reference, so there is no sound on these instruments unless I load them again.


    It was not a big issue when I've made that projects as I remembered the exact instruments, but now after some time I'm trying to open projects made months ago and of course I don't remember the exact instrument/preset I used. So I ended up having project without references to their sounds...


    Is anyone else experiencing the same issue? Is it a known issue in M+?

    Sorry for not providing the result using the same instruments in the Maschine software in a computer, but I don't have it installed anymore, just using M+ as a standalone.
