The Windows version of MachFive, MOTU’s
universal cross-platform sampler software, is now shipping with disk streaming and
several additional enhancements. MachFive now supports all major Windows plug-in
formats (VST, DXi, RTAS and HTDM) and Windows host applications, including Pro Tools,
SONAR, Cubase SX and Nuendo.
Additional MachFive enhancements include the ability to import Kontakt soundbanks, as
well as REX (Recycle) version 1 and 2 files. MachFive automatically maps each audio
slice in a REX file to consecutive keys on the keyboard for convenient sample-style
triggering. Both of these new features are also being made available to MachFive/Mac
users as a free Version 1.08 updater, now available at www.motu.com/downloads.
MachFive is now available for both Mac OS 9/X and Windows 2K/XP at a suggested retail
price of $395.
