    I bought this and installed via Native Access on my PC. All works in Maschine software.

    Just powered up my Maschine+ and it's not showing Lunar Echoes as available.

    ?????

    @PK The DJ Still not showing up? It is definitely optimized for the Maschine Plus and so it should be there.

    @Matt_NI Just checked it. Download via Native Access worked this morning but still not available on my M+

    Actually, little hiccup with the expansion 😓

    It requires a newer version of Massive to run on Maschine Plus which will be updated with the next Maschine Plus release. Unfortunately, it won't show up for now until the new version is released which is meant to be quite soon. Sorry about the delay everyone!

    Mysterious compatibility issues with Massive presets have been reported by users a couple of times now.

    Whoever decided is was a good idea to break backward compatibility for preset files with a bug fix release has made a very poor choice. Presets created with Massive 1.5.x should work with any 1.5.x installation and higher.

    Breaking changes for file compatibility are ok for major releases (x.0.0) or in some cases dot releases (1.x.0) but never for bug fix releases (1.0.x).

    Please report this problem to the Massive Team as major defect.

    Either the file structure has to be reverted to the previous state, or if that is not feasible for a good reason, Massive version must be increased and released with a warning note about the breaking change. Preset file versions would be a good idea as well, then the app could at least inform the user that the preset file structure is newer and can’t be read correctly, like:

    „This preset was created or saved with a newer version of Massive. Please update Massive to the latest version to use this preset.“

    They are aware, I'm not entirely sure what happened but hopefully it'll get sorted across the board. The Maschine Plus update is really just around the corner too which means it shouldn't take long at all.

    Thank you for the fast reply!

    Maschine+ being behind is just one possible problem. There may be other reasons why users are not on the latest Massive update which breaks compatibility for presets created on version 1.5.9. This might become a major problem for sound designers selling Massive sound libraries.

    Good to know the team is aware, and hopefully this issue is resolved soon with a Massive 1.5.10 release.

    Thank god I found this thread. I was losing my mind trying to work out what was going on!

    I guess will just have to wait for the massive update

    It would benefit us all if NI just released a patch to update Massive on the M+ so the expansion will install.

    Forget about updating the rest of the system, firmware etc. which keeps being put back.

    It's been three weeks already.

    Call me crazy but in the broader scheme of things I hardly think that one bug in one expansion on one of the platforms not working can possibly take priority over putting the finishing touches on this very eagerly anticipated update.

    And I feel pretty confident that if that one bug (about which by the way I haven't heard any complaints reported in any area other than Lunar Echoes on M +), if it was really that easy to fix that it could be separated from the rest of the codebase then they would have already done it. Can we agree that in all likelihood they are neither idiots nor sadists? Let's let them finish the update so that we can all have it and benefit from it. 😁

    OMFG! AWESOME! I just checked too and it's installing as we speak!

    Thanks @DJYano for catching that!

    Well great news! Deleted my previous comment to avoid confusion and I can confirm the team fixed it last night. Lunar Echoes can now be installed on your M+ without additional steps.
