An Amazing All-in-one Software Sampler!

Heads up! This product requires an iLok to use. It's not included.

In true MOTU fashion, MachFive 3 pushes the boundaries of software sampling technology, giving you the kind of power and flexibility that sampling enthusiasts have been dreaming about for years. MachFive 3 comes with a massive 45GB sound library - but that's just the surface of this incredible sampling environment. When you dive into the heart of MachFive 3, you'll find layers upon layers of incredible sampling possibilities. Start by loading up the sounds you want. Go ahead, any sound will do. In fact, there are only a rare few sample formats MachFive 3 doesn't support. From there, the fun begins.

When you start exploring its powerful built-in sound-shaping options, MachFive 3 turns into a complete sampling playground. Want to morph your sample into a loop? No problem. Add some effects? You got it. MachFive 3 comes loaded with 47 amazing effects, including an rich and detailed convolution reverb. Want to get really tweaky? Prepare to be blown away! With 11 discrete synthesis engines, including unlimited multi-point envelopes and tempo sync functions, MachFive 3 lets you create virtually any sound you can imagine. What's more, MachFive 3 features IRCAM's finest time-stretching and pitch-shifting tools - a sound designer's dream-come-true!

With all of this power and flexibility, you might assume that you need a degree in sampling and synthesis to learn your way around MOTU's MachFive 3... but you'd be wrong. Actually, MachFive 3's user interface takes full advantage of the easy-to-use 3rd-generation UVI Engine. This remarkable interface makes otherwise-intimidating functions such as MachFive 3's unlimited-layer scripting easy to grasp. Plus, the UVI Engine is totally bulletproof, so whether you're running MachFive 3 in standalone mode or as a plug-in in your favorite DAW, you can count on its rock-solid reliability.
