Maschine looses midi stream

Robert13 Member Posts: 8 Sine


I have Maschine2.15.2 installed on a Windows 10 PC.

Since some updates ago, Maschine looses a midi stream. This issue is also mentioned on the old forum. https://www.native-instruments.com/forum/threads/maschine-keeps-losing-midi-in-when-in-midi-controller-mode.129768/

I have tried the DisableMIDITimestamping fix. But then all midi streams are way out of sync.

It is on the first scene I create. And if I want to delete that scene, all scenes are deleted.

    Hi @Robert13 do you have the exact same setup as the one mentioned in the post (with Traktor)? More info about your setup would be great.

    Maybe @Jeremy_NI has some insights on what to check?

    So you did the following ? I'll put it there as it could be helpful for others:

    Use the .reg files attached for disabling/enabling the MIDI Time Stamp

    or set the key manually as per the following:

    Please open your registry editor by clicking the Windows icon in the bottom left of your screen and typing "regedit".

    Navigate to:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Native Instruments\Maschine 2

    DisableTS / DWORD / 1 (MIDI Timestamping OFF) | 0 (MIDI Timestamping ON)

    This will set timestamping on all physical ports. It shouldn't affect MIDI sync.

    If that doesn't do the trick @Robert13 we need some more info on the setup:

    What devices are connected ? How are they connected ? MIDI cables, USB MIDI ? Who's the master, who's the slave ?

    Yes, i know. But if I disable timestamping the midi clock gets wobbely/ instable.

    With midi timestamping after some time, seconds of some minutes, the midi stream is lost. I have to reset all devices (PC and midi device)

    My Behringer RD9 and Access Virus Indigo loses their midi streams often. Sometimes my Behringer TD-3 also.

    All devices have got their last firmware updates.

    Maschine is the midi clock master and starts/ stops the other devices.

    Behringer RD9 uses its USB midi

    Behringer RD3 uses its USb midi

    Access Virus indigo uses the 5 pin midi port off the Komplete Kontrol S61 MK2 of Maschine MK2.

    I've been using the reg hack for years and never had an issue with the MIDI clock being unstable.

    @Robert13 I'm a little late to the party. Have you tried to connect the RD9 and Td-3 to physical MIDI din? Do they also loose the MIDI stream when plugged this way ? USB is usually less stable than pure MIDI. Have you ever considered a device like this one? https://www.thomann.de/de/kenton_midi_thru_5.htm
