Hi folks

interested to hear if anyone has experience with connecting midi guitars to maschine, how you got on and what setup you’re using!

    Hi Steve,

    would also be interested to know more about potential integration of a Midi guitar like the Jamstik in the Maschine+ standalone workflow. Is it possible? Did you try it?

    What do you mean by "integration"? As long as the MIDI-Guitar doesn't need software drivers it should work fine, like any MIDI Keyboard or controller, for it to work on an M+ it has to be USB MIDI Class-Complient or have some sort 5-Pin DIN MIDI output.

    Do note that the M+ does not have any realistic-sounding Guitar instrument.

    The modern ones seem to have some features that the M+ does not support, like Bluetooth but more importantly: MPE, I'm not an expert but I reckon this is a must-have for things like slides, bends, etc...

    This one for example:


    Seems to have a TRS-5-PIN MIDI Out, they claim it can control HW Synths, so it should be MIDI 2.0 and work fine with the M+.

    Thanks for the info.

    I am a beginner with MIDI (just bought a M+) and i was not sure if such a guitar may need more special software apart of the usual MIDI protocol. Would be fine for me to have basic support so i can practice and experiment with the M+ and a jamstik.

    But would be cool if someone had actually tried it out and could share some experiences or even do a video 😊
