Any Plans To Make the Maschine Mikro MK3 Class Compliant?

I’m really liking my Maschine Mikro, but I really wish I could use it with my iPad DAW of choice and my Mac. Are there any plans to make an update to the firmware to make it (or any of the Maschine lineup) class compliant or allow midi mode to work without the computer driver?

    I also would love to use it with my iOS device

    Hey folks, unfortunately this is very unlikely. MIDI is handled by the Maschine software or the Controller Editor software when in MIDI mode, it needs a computer to operate, it can't be plug & play on an iPad.

    That would be really cool but I doubt it, it's been like this for 13 years.

    Our best bet is that the folks at Rebellion make some sort of dongle-like adapter.

    Just to put it out there, a class-compliant MIDI controller with the excellent pads from Maschine is on my wishlist. To use with e.g. Beatmaker 3 on iPad. Am now looking elsewhere (Akai or Novation), but so far the pads on Maschine seem very much liked for finger drumming.
