Routing Maschine sounds into individual Ableton channels

Hi all,

I am new and just bought a Maschine MK3. I really like this groove box and trying to find the ideal workflow for me with Ableton. I found a workflow on Youtube by Beats by Danny that I want to explore to get more out of the Maschine MK3 and Ableton. He is talking about making a template by first routing Maschine MK3 sounds into individual Ableton channels.

In the first part of the workflow I already got stuck 😂.


  1. Open Maschine VST in Ableton
  2. Open VST Maschine window
  3. In Maschine go to mixer of group A1, when it opens, you see the 16 channels (Sound 1-16)
  4. Then click on the IO button (left)
  5. For all 16 channels change the ‘group’ label to Ext. 1, 2, 3, etc.

Changing Sound 1-6 with Ext. 1-6 was not a problem, that worked. But when I get to channel 7, I can select Ext. 7 but the ‘group’ label does not change. When you find the Youtube video of Beats by Danny - How to use Maschine MK3 and Ableton workflow tutorial 2018, it is around minute 2, when he explains the above.

Can anyone help me to fix this?

    So, you are unable to change the Output of Pads starting on Pad-7 onwards? It just gets stuck in "Group"?

    What if you try here? :

    Is Maschine up to date?

    Yessss, it worked! Thanks!

    There is also a different way to set this, but that did not work.
