Getting a Maschine+ like experience with a micro desktop
I've been after a way to be able to use my Dell Micro and Maschine Mk3 like a Maschine+ (but with the added bonus of VSTs and a much beefier CPU).
It all started when I found my USB to HDMI adapter (that had worked on all my other machines) was failing to output during a session at a project studio I'd hired that evening.
It left me with no way to see what I was doing.
But I managed to successfully log into my Windows account, start Maschine, and create a new track without the output from a monitor (other than what's displayed on the Maschine device).
I took this a step further in a later session by configuring Windows to launch Maschine as soon as I log into my account.
I did a 6-hour rehearsal and recording session last week and everyone just assumed I had a Maschine+, so this setup is definitely working.
Now I will install some more software to give me an option to use my tablet as a screen mirror in case I find myself in a position where screen access is a must.
Saving files was tricky because Maschine requires you to input filenames with a keyboard. My workaround was to use Save as Copy, which ensures you are saving to a new file.
So far I've been able to confirm that Maschine is pretty usable in a sort of "headless mode" to give you a pretty convincing Maschine+-like experience.
