    Default Ableton w/ Maschine? quick help plz

    Quick question. Can ableton be mapped to work with NI Maschine? Or do I need an Akai MPC style drum pad? Im entirely new to production, and I was looking to get the Maschine but after reading a few forums, I think I came across the notion that Maschine and Ableton are not compatible, since Maschine comes with its own software?

    Maschine can be used with Ableton as any MIDI controller would, it even has a scripted mapping for it. Dunno where you got the incompatibility idea from but it's not quite right.

    The controller has 2 layers, regular HID and MIDI. HID one controls the Maschine software, press shift + control and you are in MIDI land, you can switch between multiple presets directly from the hardware and edit them with Controller Editor.
