Using Maschine to control external MIDI devices
What are MIDI CC Macro Presets?
MIDI Control Change Macros allow you to define a set of macros in MASCHINE that can be used to control and modulate parameters on external MIDI devices using your MASCHINE soft- ware or hardware.
To save you the time of creating sets of Macro controller we have created a few readymade pre- sets for popular devices which can be installed on your computer. Once installed the Macro presets appear in the Sound and Group categories of your MASCHINE Browser and can easily be used as part of your workflow. It is also possible to edit these presets or create new ones.
