Awesome gear but a WARNING! 24 Nov. 2013
By Dane M Scurich - Published on Amazon.com
I've been an NI fan for years utilizing the Maschine MKI, Traktor, Komplete 9, and numerous expansion packs. Studio is a fantastic product and thus far I'm an avid proponent of the 2.0 software release. BUT one thing to mention for some prior MK users who've been using the 1.0 software. If you're like me and use Maschine 1 as a plugin within say Live, Logic, Pro Tools, etc., note that Maschine 2.0 WILL NOT open Maschine 1 plugin work within a 3rd party DAW UNLESS the work done within the Maschine 1 plugin is saved as an NI project. The reason for this is that 2.0 is a completely separate program than 1.0. This won't effect you if you've only used Maschine 1.0 as a standalone DAW because you would have saved your projects anyways but if you're like me and have 100's of say Pro Tools or Live sessions where you used Maschine as a plugin, then you're also probably like me where you didn't save the Maschine plugin work as an NI Project because the saving process is already being handled by saving the Live, Pro Tools, etc., session which then saves all plugin parameters within it, Maschine included.

This isn't a problem for someone that doesn't mind holding onto their 1.0 license but if you are wanting to sell your MK in order to upgrade to the Studio, then before you sell off your gear and your 1.0 license, KNOW that you'll have to go back through EVERY SINGLE session in your library and save your Maschine plugin as an NI Project. If you don't do this and you transfer your license to a buyer, your new 2.0 license WILL NOT allow you to open your old 1.0 sessions.

I contacted NI Support about this issue, letting them know that they are in ways, handcuffing people like me from selling off old MK gear with the intention of stepping up to the Studio. By handcuffed I mean, either I have to go back and spend the numerous hours opening up every single session I have across all of my different hard drives and saving my Maschine plugin work as projects OR I just have to hold onto my 1.0 license thus the MK in order to access old projects.

My suggestion to NI was to allow the new 2.0 license to also be able to open 1.0 instantiations but NI didn't respond to that inquiry. They did respond to other emails I sent basically saying that this was the workflow that needed to happen and that licensing alterations wouldn't be allowed. Imo, NI should have planned for this with the likelihood that many Studio buyers would have been MK users in the past, and many of those users utilizing Maschine as a plugin. No mention of this workflow is posted on the NI Maschine Product pages so I wanted to make sure people would know this before making the jump.

That said, aside from this bs, Studio is awesome as is the the 2.0 software and I do recommend the product. NI is at the top of the food chain for the products they offer. I hope that enough people will send in support inquiries/complaints about this issue that they will consider remedying the license issue.

Love The Maschine Studio, Hate NI Support 16 Jan. 2014
By speedriff - Published on Amazon.com
I love every version of Maschine that I have owned including the new Maschine Studio. Here is the problem. At some point you are going to have to deal with Native Instruments support/registration/tech support. I say this because you can't just go in and release your serial numbers when you go to sell your old products. You have to submit, in writing, a request asking for your serial numbers to be released. If you don't do this, whomever buys your unit will have a paperweight as it is the software that runs Maschine. In this day and age it is archaic, to say the least. I mean c'mon. this is a software company! Why can't we go into our account and just release our own serial numbers? The only thing I can fathom is that it is done to discourage you from selling your old gear, thereby increasing their own sales. Yeah, not likely. This issue alone should tell you what NI thinks of it's customers. Your time and mine is obviously not important to them.

Ok, so you may ask,what's the problem? I'll tell you what. They never seem to be able to release your software serial numbers with just the online request, which by the way takes days to process if they do so at all, or at least that has been mine and a friends experience. Sorry no, you have to call registration support. Plan on spending an hour on hold. If you get to the front of the queue, don't be surprised if their system hangs up on you. Yesterday I spent the better part of three, yes, that is three with a (3) hours on hold. I was next caller for over twenty minutes on one call and next to be helped for 17 minutes before I was cut off...twice. Please don't misunderstand me and think that was my total time for each call. When you hear your average wait time increasing, you know you're in for a real treat (sarcasm). After the second hang up, I finally got fed up and called the main U.S. number for upgrades. The guy who answered, Peter, was really unhelpful and acted like I was a bother. When I told him their customer support was horrible, he hung up on me! Nice and professional.

So in closing, let it be known that NI make some really cool gear but their product support is horrendous. If you never had to contact them it wouldn't be a problem but trust me, you will. Forget trying to contact the main German office for support or a complaint, they loop you back to the U.S. office even though they speak English. I have to wonder if their customer support is as dismal in Germany? Considering I have thousands of dollars of this companies product line, you would think they would be helpful. Nope, they are just the opposite and act like they are doing you a favor. They just don't care. I won't be wasting my money on their products again. My money spends just as good elsewhere and there are some very good alternatives out there. Be forewarned.

like the serial numbers you need to unlock the software 19 Sept. 2014
By BooCoco - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Do not buy this product from Amazon. Amazon is not an authorized dealer which means that if you get the product and something isn't right, like the serial numbers you need to unlock the software, then you're screwed because the company that makes Maschine (Native Instruments) won't do the right thing and get you correct serial numbers. Disappointed in both Amazon and Native Instruments. Considering how i was treated by the Native Instruments (non)support team, I would not buy any product from this company.

Dane m doesn't know what he's talking about 22 Mar. 2014
By Ryan - Published on Amazon.com
If he watched any tutorial videos on the 2.0 software... He'd know how to do what he's describing.
But he didn't, so he just assumes that it's "impossible!!" Lol.
Btw, there, in the drop down menu, is an option to "import 1.x project" so, There you have it...
Maybe because it didn't say, "Dane! This is what you need to click to do what you want!" He must have missed it..
