Good day

My maschine is used and broken…knobs and value numbers change constantly by themselves which i can’t use no more…

So i decided to get a new one. Do i have to re-install the new Maschine or i can just use it as a new controller without re-installing everything?

Thanks for your help.

    I’m on my second Mk3 (first one just stopped working out of nowhere within 2 years of minimal use) Kept that thing as new as the day it came out of the box!

    and now this new Mk3 I received is starting to have issues as well (Pads light up on their own, Knob values change on their own) Seems like Mk3’s were poorly built; we know the knobs have issues -_-

    Seriously thinking of going back to a used MK2 from Guitar Center or something. But I love the MK3 so much. I just don’t think I could justify purchasing another MK3 if having the previous 2 have failed. Seems like Maschine +’s were built a little better, but even those have issues.

    Wouldn’t be surprised if NI controllers have a 1 in 3 product failure rate.
