I use Ableton Live with Maschine all the time. Are you using USB 2.0 port? Have the lastest version of maschine and controller editor?

The new Maschine update (1.7) messed up the controller MIDI control IMO. I updated, and once I did, my Maschine won't send MIDI (only as a controller, it works perfectly with Maschine software) to ableton without a restart of my computer. weird, and, annoying. Do you have this version of Maschine? anyone else have this problem as well?

When you press pads or buttons on maschine controller, does the midi indicator light blink in Live?

Not sure why you're having those problems but you should contact NI support or ask in their forums.

As for 1.7, it's be stupid not to update. It's not just about Komplete integration. 1.7 update also has several new features as well as bug fixes. It also comes with a new version of the Controller Editor.
