Maschine MK3 Mikro & Logic — Only 45% "integrated"
Aloha from Honolulu,
I've used Logic & NI for decades, but am new to Maschine. Dipping my toes in with the Mikro.
I've watched "every" NI and YouTube video on Mikro/Logic integration, and they get me about 45% of the way there.
I know there are various ways to configure the relationship between Mikro/Logic.
What I'd like to do is:
-- Use the Mikro pads to trigger notes. (I don't care where they get recorded first)
-- Easily record into Logic on 16 separate channels
-- It'd be nice to loop in Logic the way you can on the Mikro stand-alone
My newbie analysis points to various "minor" settings I may need to attend to:
-- The Manual/Drumkit setting... set to Manual?
-- Turning the Patterns OFF on the Maschine 2 plug in?
-- Is there a MIDI setting I need to set on the Mikro side?
-- Might the set-up in Maschine 2 standalone be "fighting" with the set-up when Machine 2 is a Logic plug-in?
-- Are there other "minor" or "obvious" settings that I'm not attending to?
I need real help with recording:
-- Is it initiated from Mikro or Machine-in-Logic?
-- How can I record onto each separate track (16 tracks)
-- I pull MIDI from the Mikro to Logic, but even in just one of the 16 tracks, ALL the 16 pads from the Mikro play
-- Can I set a count-in as usual in Logic for use with Mikro?
-- How do I get recording to start at the "first bar" in Logic — they seem to start randomly, but when I stop Mikro and drag MIDI
-- Again, can I set up a loop in Logic, and and then create a pattern in Logic the way I would in the stand-alone Mikro
Like I said, I've read the Mikro manual (dozens of times) and watched innumerable YouTube videos and... what should be simple and straight-forward set-up doesn't seem to be.
Does anyone know of a comprehensive resource that helps a new user set up the relationship the way s/he wants (me: play notes on Mikro, easily record on 16 tracks in Logic) and then use that set up to work efficiently?
