Maschine +/Software integration mess
So i'm getting a little frustrated with the Maschine integration here, i'm reading on some support posts that SD Card and USB drives in Machine+ need to be exfat to be read on the device, however when using the Maschine 2 software using an external drive formatted to exFat with all my samples on, the drive is not showing as available on the workspace under user files, I only have 3 options available, 'Untitled, desktop, tyler' no external drive is showing up, even though the drive shows up on my mac desktop as an external drive named samples.
I've since read that Maschine software does not support exfat and the drive should be formatted to a mac readable format, but I use both Windows and mac systems, so do not want to do that.
What is going on here, why does NI advise to use exfat on Maschine+, yet not support it in the actual Maschine software?
If I add the external drive under preferences/user/, the samples show up in Library, however it's all a jumbled mess, with no structure, not all my Zero G sample libraries show up, none of the vengeance libraries show up and most other do not show up either (most probably due to no tagging)
The whole tagging of samples is frustrating the hell out of me too, purchased the auto tagging software a member created, exported some tagged samples, with the only option to export to the mac desktop, so then I have to manually copy these back over to the external hdd, tried opening the folder on the auto tag software to check tags were in place, none of the exported samples tags existed, plus files appear duplicated in the application with a ._ added to the filename.
Not having a fun time with Maschine at all, it comes across as very convoluted at the minute, all I want to do is plug a drive in with my samples in the folder structure I have setup and be able to browse to those folders when I want a sample, I have never used anything as frustrating.
Apologies for the rant, but this is becoming a hot mess and i'm close to just jacking it in and turning to something else, this is not a workflow I want to really carry on with.
Anyone have any idea about what is going on here? 😫
