Fixing the Missing Plugin Error for NI Massive in Maschine
Ever since the release of the lastest version of Maschine, yes the one that includes the free license of NI Massive, people have been having an issue with Maschine recognizing plugins. Yes, we mean NI Massive. So what exactly is the key to getting everything to work right with NI Massive in Maschine, as well as the rest of the Native Instruments Komplete plugins? The steps are outlined in this helpful video tutorial, compliments of Tasherre Risay.
For the large majority of Maschine users all you need to do is plugin your hardware, launch your software and that’s it. But for the unlucky few out there who continue to struggle with the missing plugin error messages, this lesson can be considered priceless. The issue seems to lie in the fact that there is a discrepancy in the file path for the plugin(s) in Maschine and where it actually is located on your computer. Luckily, Native Instruments Service Center program keeps a handle on where every program it manages is installed on your system. This makes it very easy to solve this problem. Just copy the file paths of each plugin you wish to use, such as NI Massive in Maschine, and then copy them into the plugin file path field within Maschine’s preferences.
Just remember to save your changes and rescan for plugins to ensure that your updates have been recognized. Now you should be able to use NI Massive in Maschine, without the error messages! As mentioned before, this also works for all of the other major NI programs that were highlighted in the video tutorial.
