Script for Maschine Mk3 slows down Ableton a lot, is a new script coming out soon or is there a fix?

As per title. I put the scripts in the Ableton folder and suddenly my Ableton instance became extremely slow even at slow load. I removed them and it's running awesomely again. Is there any fix to this? I literally bought the Mk3 to be used as a controller and I can't do anything with it because if I set up the scripts then Ableton is literally unusable.

    @kosky Which script do you mean? These will probably not get updated. Not sure what your issue is. More details would be necessary, like what script you're using, what version of Ableton you're using, your operating system, etc....

    Kosky is talking about the Ableton Script that is downloaded from NI support. It does the same to me!

    @Maxray There are 8 different scripts in that article: How to Install MASCHINE Templates for Ableton Live

    Which one and which version of Ableton, what operating system? This way we can try to reproduce the issue.

    Hi again! So, in my case I got the script from here:

    It's the script for Windows/Live 11 for the Maschine mk3.

    I contacted Ableton which, after looking at the Status Report, confirmed something was wrong with the script itself.

    I'm on Windows 10 (64bit) and using the latest Ableton 11 both updated to the latest available version.

    PS: Jeremy love that profile picture

    Is that ("Something is wrong") literally all they said?

    @PK The DJ they said that, since they Update the API quite frequently, it could be that something broke. From what they said NI reverse engineer the original Push Script and adapt it to the Maschine. Because the last Script of the Update was pushed on 2021, they think that something changed in the meanwhile

    I'm going to give it a try here. I just installed the template.

    Can confirm, the Maschine mk3 script makes ableton come to a crawl. If you use multiple groups, it freezes Ableton when you expand or collapse them. Ableton support gave me a similar answer, and he script is using outdated api calls.

    Hey there, Sorry, I'm still in the process of configuring a PC to test and din't get a chance yet. Also trying to get some more info.

    Is this started after an Ableton update?
