Hi all,

What I'd like to accomplish:

Hardware Setup:

Inputs:

  1. Roland FP 30 (digital piano) --> connected with MacBook M1 Air
  2. Microphone AKG D 60 S --> connected with Maschine MK
  3. Outputs: Yamaha HS8 -> Connected to MK3

Software:

Maschine 2

Traktor Pro 2 (does not work with M1, just non-PRO version) // Traktor 3 ?? (cannot record)

OS version (M1 air):

 % uname -a

Darwin 192-168-0-221.rdsnet.ro 22.3.0 Darwin Kernel Version 22.3.0: Mon Jan 30 20:39:35 PST 2023; root:xnu-8792.81.3~2/RELEASE_ARM64_T8103 arm64

I'd kindly ask for assistance on this since I'm pretty banging with my head on the walls here.

Regards,

Alex

    The FP30 will be used as sound source or as a midi controller?

    In the back of the Piano is a midi cable connected to my MacBook, not in the mk3, in regards to the utility, it depends on how much it’s supported. In Ableton i have signal. So, when playing on the piano is a midi interface. If I can record also while playing piano, it’s a plus for sampling.

    So..you already have your answer: MK3, S2 and FP30 with usb to computer to control programs, Maschine selected as audio interface, mic into Maschine, monitors out from Maschine

    My issue is towards related to the software. Since I own Traktor 2 pro (on M1, only Traktor 3 or other (pro) version - can record your mixes - my goal) - trying to find workarounds and I still seem to bang my head to a wall.

    My issue is that NI is making me getting rid of my old S2 MK2 - since Traktor 2 pro is unavailable for activation on the M1 - and I don't want to buy Traktor 3 only for that.

    I'd like at least to sync my S2 Mk2 w. Rekordbox then ( bought pro subscription only to record my mixes) - but no support, therefore my issues (no mappings that really work and so on...)

    -- or this is how I see the things here.

    You don't have to record from Traktor?

    For traktor 2/3 simple, no; rec is enabled only with the pro version.
