Recording MIDI from Maschine Studio directly into Ableton Live

Based on the tutorial by St. Jones.

My initial problems were solved after discovering that the MIDI input to Maschine VST was enabled. Hoping it will help someone!

1) Set MIDI Host group in Maschine Studio VST\

  1. (optional) Rename the group to MIDI Host
  2. (right-click) on the MIDI host group -> Group MIDI Batch Settings -> Sounds to MIDI Notes
  3. Set sound/pad #1 MIDI output note on C3
  4. Assign remaining MIDI Host group MIDI notes to chromatic scale values by transposing all following notes by 1 step more than the previous one e.g. C#, D, F … ,C4
  5. Select all notes and select MIDI output to Host
  6. Set MIDI host group MIDI input to active and channel 1 (no feedback)
  7. Set Group 2 MIDI Input to channel 2. Transpose root note to C3
  8. Set Group 3 MIDI Input to channel 3

2) Ableton

  1. Set external instrument #1 MIDI settings to Maschin
  2. Set external instrument #2 MIDI settings to Maschine
  3. Set track 2 MIDI Output to “Maschine channel 2”
  4. Set track 3 MIDI Output to “Maschine channel 3”

Audio:

  1. Set group #2 audio output to Ext2
  2. Set External instrument #1 audio input to Machine channel #2
