Maschine+ MIDI scene change

Is it possible to trigger scene changes with a launchpad or other midi controller in standalone mode? It seems everyone does it through a DAW but the option shows up in standalone mode as well. I can’t seem to get it working.

    I didn't think so but figured I would ask. That would be a game changer for performing. Thanks for the response!

    No. I have a Novation Launchpad Mini MK3. I'm trying to find a work around to trigger scenes with another device so I can use Perform FX and Mute on the Maschine Plus in standalone mode. I can do it on the Maschine Plus if I set the Perform Grid to 1 Bar or Scene but it would be a lot easier to use another device so I don't have to navigate through menus as much while performing.

    I'm able to do it. 2 scenes in maschine. My MODX (routed through a midi interface) going into maschine. Settings > MIDI > Page 2 > Midi Change set to Scene, Note, my midi port, channel 1.

    This means I wouldn't be able to use that port/channel for anything else; so I'd probably set it to channel 16 or something. The notes required to change are WAAAAAY down there. C-2 is scene 1, C#-2 is scene 2, etc.

    I can test with another midi device if interested; I suspect it would work the same

    Thanks for the info! I just came across a workaround for triggering the scenes in Maschine Plus Standalone Mode with my Novation Launchpad right before I read this. I had to make a custom template in Novation Components editor on the computer. I made all of the Launchpad's pads Program Change numbers starting at PC 0 with my first pad. After that I hooked up the launchpad to the Maschine Plus and had to go to midi settings on the Maschine and set Input and Output to the Launchpad on the first page and toggle them On. Then I went to page 2 and set MIDI change Type to Scene, Trigger is set to Program Change, Source is set to Launchpad Mini and channel is set to 1 or whatever channel is chosen for the pads in the Novation Components editor.
