Mikro MK2 not working with Maschine 2
Any advice is much appreciated:
Mikro 2 is deader than a doornail, purchased Brand New from Sweetwater, the screen turns on and at power-up all the buttons do their color wash. All the buttons also recently turned on and stayed on until I launched Maschine 2. Otherwise, I can only use the software on the desktop, I have zero control or interaction with the Maschine itself, through the Mac or on its little screen.
OSX 10.10.5, Maschine 2.6.9
A colleague came by (who also uses Maschine, and is way more familiar with electronic instruments).
He thought it might be a driver issue, and maybe a different version of the software would do the trick.
We tried other versions of 2--2.0.2, 2.6.8, none of them work. I tried to install 2.7.6 and received the error: Installation cannot proceed, as not all requirements were met. This product requires at least OSX 10.11.
In order to keep everything working within a particular software suite, I'm running a Mac Pro (Mid 2010) with Pro Tools 11.
I picked up a Mikro Mk 2 which I was told would run in this environment with the Maschine 2.6.9 software, but so far no go.
Hi, have you tried using a different usb cable?0
Thanks, I can certainly give that a shot! I’ve been using the one that came with the hardware.
Any particular other, ah, type or brand I should try? I’ll pick one up today heading home0
After reading some of the issues on here with USB cables, I thought that might be the issue--something about the provided cord delivering power but not being long enough to permit data exchange.
I purchased and installed a new USB 2.0 Data Cable and the unit is still not transmitting any data or functioning at all in standalone mode.
Any ideas? Thank you!0
Did you contact sweetwater? You have an automatic 2 year warranty on it from them.0
In terms of USB cables, I would like to share my experience. I have one that wont power the MK3 but will power up the Jam so I suspect the current draw or the cable hardware specifications does make the difference.0
thank you for that! I found a solution on YouTube involving removing the HAL folder from Plugins. That fixed it. After 5 years, that fixed it. NI support is a nightmare.1
