Make sure your Maschine Mikro Mk3 is running the latest firmware. This is super important as earlier versions of the Mikro Mk3 did’t support MIDI.
Download the latest firmware here.
Scroll to the section called “MASCHINE CONTROLLER” and find the Mikro Mk3 firmware updater for your operating system.
Now all you need to do is put it into MIDI mode. To do that, press the SHIFT & MASCHINE buttons together.
If this is the first time activating MIDI mode, you may need to try this with your Maschine 2 software open. After doing it once, switching to MIDI mode should work without Maschine 2 software running.
If you're still having issues, please don't hesitate to get in touch via the Support page.
