Mac / Maschine only works if I open Controller Editor

Hey there,

I encountered if I connect my Maschine Mikro Mk3 to my Macbook M1, it lights up and then shuts down. It only goes into working mode and midi mode if I open the NI Controller Editor once (I can close it after that). Then there is no problem, but the issue comes back if I reboot the Mac.

Any idea what's going on? Do I need to have something running in the background or missing drivers?

    @NicolasG Have you installed the Maschine software? Does the Maschine software have full disk access ? How to Enable Full Disk Access on macOS

    Also, to be sure. If the Mikro MK3 is connected without the Maschine software on or Controller Editor you need to push SHIFT + the Maschine logo button, top left of the Mikro Mk3.
