Maschine multiple parameters on 1 macro

When its will be able to have multiple fx , synth or sampler parameters in 1 macro ? I need it too much because Im live performer and its very hard to have parameters on individual macros πŸ™„ for example i need use filter cutoff, delay and reverb- saturation same time when Im performing 😭 and its very hard because i need to have individual 4 macro . Please Native instruments work on it . I know that its possible in Massive but do it in Maschine software please 🎹

    πŸ’― I would really love the same thing.

    I already have it in my elektron Analog 4 and Analog Rytm. Also in Ableton live. They even let you choose how much a macro knob affects each destination knob.

    ...But not not in Maschine....yet

    As a guess i assume it should not be that difficult, or CPU intensive, but i am no programmer.

    Even if it was limited to be 4 or 5 controls per knob, that would still be huge!!

    As Lipo says, it is very important to us live performers as we have a limited amount of hands.

    Who else would like this feature?

    Not a live performer right now but I think it’s essential for live performance and there are also situations during production when using macros to control several parameters with one knob is welcome.

    However, if more than one parameter can be controlled with a single Macro knob, the following settings are necessary:

    • Range of to target
    • Direction

    I hate to chime in with a remark like this, but OTOH I also don't want to stop talking about how useful the Maschine Jam actually is:

    I, too, would love to have macros influence more than one destination. But if you use a Jam, it's actually really easy and even fun to really play with four parameters with one hand. The touch strips are so different from knobs that way and it can get quite intricate, like handling an instrument

    Probably yes.

    But my use cases are different, and I already did setups with a MIDI keyboard and Apple Main Stage to map several parameters (even of different instruments) with restricted ranges and different directions to do controlled morphs between two sounds on a single knob.

    Imagine that capability on the JAM touch strips.

    Yes, I know firsthand that would be even better, because you can work like this on Reaktor Blocks with Maschine Jam. Btw, that would actually be a clumsy, but viable workaround: set up a CV to CC out midi learn them in Maschine and configure a macro knob block to play it in Jam.

    But apart from that I want the same thing: macro knobs in Maschine with more than one destination
