Designed to inspire. Engineered to astound.
Within minutes after you begin using MachFive 3, you'll appreciate the years of user interface design and engineering that have gone into this 3rd-generation release. From the configurable part list to the full-screen envelope editor, MachFive 3 has been designed to spur your creative muse while delivering state-of-the-art virtual instrument technology in a streamlined, efficient environment. After all, music, sound design, and audio production are creative endeavors that deserve a worthy partner in creativity.
Compared to a typical software instrument, MOTU MachFive's scripted virtual instruments are like the difference between a simple guitar preset and a real guitar player. MachFive 3 software's sophisticated instruments are truly technological marvels: they model not only the sounds of an instrument, in minute detail, but also the playing characteristics. For example, MachFive's included Telematic electric guitar instrument models strumming and picking techniques, which you can dial up as desired.
45 GB of included instruments, loops and phrases
MachFive 3's signature scripted instruments give you incredibly realistic core instruments that are basic necessities for any studio: drums, bass, guitar, piano, and percussion. But that's just the beginning. MOTU MachFive also includes thousands of loops and phrases. From break-beats to mixed choirs, there's an entire universe to explore.
MachFive Biosphere further broadens your sonic vistas with fresh, rich synth textures that are out of this world. And for the truly adventurous, the Xtreme FX bonus library from UltimateSoundBank.com gives you 5,000 creative sound effects, foley effects, and ambient textures suitable for both music production and sound design.
Powerful new synth engine
From modular analog pioneered in the 1950's to milestone breakthroughs like FM and wavetable synthesis in the decades that followed, MOTU MachFive 3 software delivers twelve synth engines that make it a powerful multi-synthesizer in its own right. When combined with MachFive's multi-sample instrument capabilities and extensive effects, the possibilities for hybrid synthesis and sound design are limitless.
The Tree Editor gives you complete, instant access to every element of your sounds in MachFive. Everything is shown hierarchically in an intuitive scrolling list, so you can clearly see the organizational relationships between all elements, starting with MachFive 3's master output fader at the very top of the list. Parts, presets, keygroups, and so on, all the way down to individual oscillators, follow below in orderly fashion, with effects, macros, event processors and other elements at all levels along the way.
Xtreme FX is an 8 GB bonus sound library from UltimateSoundbank.com that puts 5,000 creative sound FX, foley effects, and provocative textures at your fingertips. From car crashes to space storms, you'll find sounds and textures perfect for your music productions and sound design projects alike.
