    As far as I can tell, it doesn't look like the Mikro MK3 supports inversions, at least not from the hardware. Can anyone confirm this?

    I don't have a Mikro anymore to test but it has the absolute minimum software control, so i doubt it has inversions. The MK3 manual mentions inversions but the Mikro does not.

    I do have a Mikro and I can again confirm it doesn't support inversions.

    For what it's worth, you could use Scaler for that as a workaround.

    So if the Maschine Software can do chord inversions why it can't be done the Mikro but the MKIII and the the Plus?

    It's not the Maschine software that does inversions per se, it's the hardware (MK3, Plus, and KK) that enables it. But in theory, NI could easily add support for inversions on the Mikro in a subsequent update. Let's keep our fingers crossed!

    At the time of the release of the Mikro MK3 they said that they wanted to keep the Mikro's simple and unbloated, the Mikro MK2 actually has more features than the MK3 afaik.

    At this point so long after release, there's no way they will add that.

    Maybe I can add a mod to NIPatcher to do it, not sure, would be hard since I no longer have a Mikro to test with but I'll add this to my to-try list.

    If this is true in the software it shouldn't mater if I'm using Mikro, MKIII or the Plus

    What does the Auto Sampler have to do with any of this?

    Oh, snap. I'm sorry I searched in an outdated manual version. I'm not from NI but I think I might still help...

    If this is true in the software it shouldn't mater if I'm using Mikro, MKIII or the Plus

    It can matter because Chords is a function only accessible in the Controllers and not accessible in the SW at all.

    Anyway, I bothered to read the manual again for ya, yes. It's possible... I guess you just press the right arrow on the Chord Harmonizer menu until you reach "Chord - Position", that's how you navigate any main menu for extra parameters.
