    Usually DAW's are more efficient than Maschine, especially with a CPU with hyper-threading as Maschine doesn't seem to fully use it.

    If it's an Mac on Apple Silicon it can get complicated to compare as some DAW's fully use all cores and others do not.

    I'd say.. test it and find out. Keep loading instances into Maschine until you run into audio glitches and do the same with your DAW tracks, see which one can handle more... Very likely It will be the DAW.
