Maschine+ Stability Issues
My maschine+ has been an absolute pain since updating to the new version. Every project so far has crashed numerous times in standalone. I had better luck with the previous version and that’s not to say it was a painless experience. Are we ever going to have a reliable standalone device because it feels like it’s moving backwards when it comes to stability? This is killing my workflow and love for the maschine. I bought a standalone so I can bring it with me and use it in standalone mode and I can’t do that at all. After my projects crash they aren’t usable in standalone anymore and have to be transferred to the computer. My friend has an MPC One and an MPC Live 1 and they never do this when I’m collaborating with him. Someone please give me some clarity here so I don’t have to send my Maschine in to get looked at and waste more time than I already have. I just want to make music without complications with a device that I paid almost $2000 CAD for last year.

Hmmm, the question is not "Are we ever going to have a reliable standalone device because it feels like it’s moving backwards when it comes to stability?" but "Will you have a reliable device..."
My M+ works well. However my first steps long ago were to buy a very fast, reliable SD card and formatting it in my M+.
Never used the unknown one that comes with it.
Nevertheless if you don't feel confident then replace it by a MPC because mind cannot fight against feelings.0
That sucks :( did you update the firmware, restart/reset the device, and use a fast SD card?0
Updating the software and updating the firmware are 2 different things, you have to check so you’re up to date with both. Reformatting the sd is also a necessity in your case. My M+ had 1 freeze after the update, but I could save the project after a hard reboot. No issues since then. I hope you get this solved. I wanna marry my M+ now.2
Spencer, did you follow any of the suggested tips? Did it improve your situation?
What you are describing is an exact reason why I am not updating the firmware yet...0
The last update is very reliable and stable, but I thought I had lost one of my last projects after this update, I copied the contents of the SD card to my PC, formatted the SD, then copied the files on the card, and reset the M+, and all the projects work perfectly.
No bugs, no crashes, the M+ works perfectly0
I transferred my projects to my mac and reformatted the original SD card I got with it. I gave it a few days and it seems to be WAY better0
It is working much better since transferring my projects and reformatting my SD1
Cool. Thanks for the update0
