Is the Machine hardware required for audio outputs?

Two noob questions.

  1. Does the Machine hardware force you to use the built in audio outputs? Or does the plugin internally route multiple channels internally in your DAW?
  2. If yes, once the Machine hardware & software are installed, can you run the plugin without the hardware connected? (ie traveling and decide to leave the hardware at home but want to load the plugin in the DAW)

    You may choose any audio output regardless if you have or do not have Maschine HW. Anyway, only Maschine MK3 and Maschine+ have audio interface, the rest of Maschine controllers do not have it.

    If using Maschine 2 (SW) it is possible to do most things without NI controller. There might be few things, that are not possible without controller, but generally you can use Maschine 2 without controller.
