Maschine Crashes on Macbook Pro M1 - Monterey
Hi guys , I am using Maschine Hardware MK3 + Macbook Pro M1 ( Monterey )
Just bought the Macbook 1 week ago and decided to get the Maschine a few days later as it appeared to be the ideal combination to move forward with my workflow , however...
I have had nothing but issues using the standalone software ( 2.15 ), where it will crash 100% of the time from the browser
If I am using the MK3 and browsing through the libraries it somehow freezes the software on the Mac , at first I thought it was random but have replicated the issues over the past 4 hours or so of sitting here frustratingly trying to load things in
Imagine spending all this money on hardware only for it to be unusable out of the box???
I have searched the web and youtube to see if any one is having similar issues and if they have been resolved , I am aware that NI have put a statement on their website saying that there are issues with the new M1 chip , but that by running my "DAW in Rosetta" will help... unfortunately Rosetta is not the answer
Everytime I am in the browser preparing to load instruments ( browsing on screen 1 of the MK3 ) , and then moving to screen 2 to get inside the libraries , the software on the Mac will crash when just previewing the sounds , at this stage I cant even get past this point to load sounds making the hardware and software good for nothing
I saw somewhere that by going into mac preferences and setting "Full Access to Disk" under security , and allowing NI and Maschine to have those priveledges was supposed to help but unfortunately for me I have a brand new product that is useless
If anybody can help me make some progress with this I would be very thankful
downgrade to 2.14.7, they will fix some issues with 2.15.1
this link is from Jeremy from NI taken from another post in the forum.2
Thanks heaps man I will try that1
you’ll enjoy it!!1
Sad that this happens even after all the delayed release drama......
Hope a skunk works team is getting all the resources they need to come to the rescue later this year...3
Can confirm the older version Maschine 2 214 works just fine , however now I am having issues with Komplete Kontrol not loading anything ... what a nightmare this software bundle turned out to be1
can you describe in more detail? Do u run Komplete control in logic as au assuming you use logic? Have you started logic in rosetta mode? Or do you want to open Komplete as a vst within maschine 2? Or do you just run Komplete stand alone? Or as a vst2 and not 3?0
Iv tried all of the above , I found that it does work , it is just Battery that does not load , for some reason , if thats not a part of the bundled software then it shouldnt be in there because I was confused as to why none of the patches would load only to read the scrambled information all over the internet that it is a purchasable upgraded , kind of annoying that its there as an option but will not load0
I bought a Maschine Mikro Mk3 yesterday with a Mac + M1 Max chip, and spent most of the day installing and uninstalling Maschine 2 and the Factory packs etc., trying to stop it from crashing after browsing just a few kits.
I have been using Maschine 2.15.2 and couldn't find a downgrade link, so I continued to tweak the settings. I tried increasing the Buffer size in the Audio Preferences of Maschine to 1024 and it started to crash every time I changed kits. I then tried lowering the buffer to 128, and Maschine hasn't skipped a beat. I can now use the Mikro Mk3 to browse through hundreds of kits, and it hasn't crashed since I lowered the buffer. I can't say for sure, as it's only been an hour or so, but if you are having problems with Maschine 2 browsing kits on an M1 Mac it might be worth trying.
Apologies if this is common knowledge or doesn't help anyone.8

@MartinBailey I was having the same issue with my MBP M1 Pro, but now I can't even get past the scan without it stalling which in turn will not allow me to try your suggestion. Hopefully NI will get the compatibility challenges with M1 Pro/Max corrected sooner than later. Thanks for the info.0
I will test this today on my IMac. I've had the same issues happening to me.0
I think if you press the ESC button you can skip the scan process.0
Woah can confirm I have a maschine Jam and Maschine Studio connected and any time I browse, the whole thing crashes on me :( :( I was preparing to cry in a corner until I saw this post.
Can confirm, rolling back resolved the issue for now.
also please lord when will we get retina graphics, my eyes hurt I love you though NI2
Rolling back to 2.14 solved my issue of Machine crashing when loading sounds0
This has also been happening to me, M1 mac, Maschine mk3 (latest software) and Maschine Jam. the rollback version from the link above works for now - THANKYOU!0
