Maschine as a midi controller

Sorry to post this on Live's forum but NI couldn't help me with this.

I am having an issue to control live with my MK2 maschine.

I've done ALL the steps several times in order to control it, maschine's input and output are set up in Live preferences and nothing seem to work. i only can play notes via pad mode, proof that live is receiving midi signal but i can't press on buttons, they're all faded like and knobs doesn't work either.

 

Hope i'll get an answer.

Thanks!

    There's a thread in the NI forums about Live 9.1 and Maschine not working with the supplied template.  A fix would be great from someone.

    Don't know if this helps or not, but I did discover a workaround after spending HOURS trying to get the supplied templates to work. I uninstalled, and reinstalled Maschine, Maschine 2 & Ableton, but still wasn't able to get it to work the way it's SUPPOSED to work. I have the Maschine MK2 hardware controller.

    Here's what I discovered...

    Install all the templates exactly like the directions tell you to install everything. Start up Ableton Live 9...open up preferences (Cmd+,)...select the MIDI Sync tab...under the "Control Surface" drop down, select "Maschine" not "Maschine MK2"...under the input drop down menu, select "Maschine MK2 Virtual Input"...under the output drop down menu, select Maschine MK2 Virtual Output".

    I was able to get the Maschine controller to act the way that it is supposed to act...the only downside is that the interface doesn't light up like it's supposed to light up.

    Hope that helps!

    This workaround does not work in the 9.1.2b3 beta version of Live 9.

    I've installed everything and I'm not seeing an option for Maschine or Machine Mk2 in the control surface options, only the input and output options.... ???

    Had the same problem and I suppose I have an ultimate answer.

    Don't use "Maschine Template Update for Live" (it's old 2013!) beacuse only files which are needed are from fresh installation of Controller Editor (2014).

    So after uinstallation and installation of Control Editor:

    copy folders FROM "Template Support Files" folder (on WIN that's: C:\Program Files\Native Instruments\Controller Editor\Template Support Files\Ableton Live 9)

    TO "MIDI Remote Scripts" folder (C:\ProgramData\Ableton\Live 9 Suite\Resources\MIDI Remote Scripts)

    And in CE just File/Open template FROM "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Native Instruments\Controller Editor\Templates" folder (should show on the list as "Ableton 9 V2") and delete old Ableton Live 9 template on that list.

    Have Fun :)

    Hey, all -- apologies for being annoying, but I think I'm having the same problem as described here?  Just spent all morning trying to get Maschine to work with Ableton.  Everything works fine, just great, exactly as it's supposed to -- load Maschine from the plug-ins menu onto a track in Live, can "monitor" what I'm playing in Maschine through Live, but somehow the information is not recording ONTO the track. (My Axiom Pro 25 works like a CHARM, so I'm assuming it's something with Maschine.)  (I also don't see the option for "Maschine" in the Control Surface menu, just for "Maschine Mk2".)

    Am I likely having the same compatibility issues with Maschine as described above, or is it (hopefully) some other simple thing that I'm doing wrong?

     

    Would appreciate any help -- 

     

    Thanks
