Super, with restrictions

Thomas986, 11.08.2012
The half-day installation on my laptop was worth it. But only after the chaotic installation with the iLok, I had big problems! After several attempts it worked. Then I had difficulties to integrate MachFive in Ableton Live ... after I contacted Ableton, they could help me well and now everything is great. Apart from the fact that MachFive is quite crash-prone and does not react as a plug-in to the keyboard, but can only be operated with the mouse. This is very annoying. And customer service (MOTU) was also not really helpful.

The variety of MachFive really looks at first glance, but with a little practice and with the instruction written in calm English (printed, as a book!) One has the software very well under control. Where you need the instructions only for the start, everything else is self-evident, the operation is relatively simple! And the sounds are also great, I can work with it wonderfully ... and quickly create new ones.

All in all, I am very satisfied, if MachFive but would not be so crash-prone.

The new studio standard!

Oliver234, 20.06.2012
After I have tested all currently current software samplers, I can only recommend the MACH5 v3 unrestricted.

Sounds: Motu shows with the excellent sound library, the mass is not always class - here really experts were at work. Very many sounds use several programmed controllers (MW, Aftertouch ...) for filters, LFOs .... and can be played excellently! Quality: Super!
One must honestly say, the IMO no competitors to this variety of the sound design possibilities comes.

FX: Well organized and need little CPU. Example: The Fazioli piano (because of the purchase alone is already worthwhile) incl. IR Reverb needs grad times 14% CPU on an MBPRO 2,26 GHZ.
Visually: fullscreen on request - first class divided into the edit areas.

Performance Mode: Ideal for live playing - with Splits, PrgCH and more.
Manual: Very nice and clearly designed.

Scripts: Watch the Telematic video on the MOTU page ...
Free update on 3.1: Super Features!

I've been working with software and hardware for about 20 years with synths and samplers. Honestly: what was meant with Akai samplers as studio standard in my opinion the MOTU MACH5 v3. For 299EUR - Rating 5 Stars!
