Hi, I´m about to buy a Machine. But like to know if Machines 16(?) tracks can send on separate midi channels. I read the manual but did not really get an answer.

    Maschine does internally not provide MIDI channels or MIDI event routing.

    You don’t have to care about channels, because of the hierarchical structure: A Project has many Groups each having maximum 16 Sounds. A Sound is the container for an instrument (synth or sample) or effect. It is similar to a track.

    Your Reaktor instrument would be instantiated in a Sound slot and only receive those Events of the Group’s Patterns which are programmed for this Sound.

    Hey Peppe, Maschine can send MIDI on different midi channels, yes, but what do you intend to do exactly with Maschine and Reaktor ? To be sure you can do it before buying!
