Incredible integration and advanced features give you high-quality software sampling.

The MOTU MachFive Universal Sampler helps you manage and manipulate your samples with Intelligent, intuitive file management optimized for browsing and loading libraries

Intelligent file management

The most critical thing you need from a sampler is easy access to your sounds. The MachFive Universal Sampler offers unprecedented sound bank management, helping you concentrate on the music not file-handling chores on your hard disk. MachFive always remembers where your sounds are located, and it has been optimized for browsing and loading libraries. Even multigigabyte libraries are quickly and efficiently scanned.

The convenience of a true plug-in

At last: a sampler that is also a real plug-in. Save your project in your host software, and everything about MachFive is saved with it. Manage everything in the same environment. Optimize your time and your computer’s CPU resources and never leave your workstation software. MachFive’s single window allows you to view all editing and performance parameters in one glance with unprecedented speed and flexibility.

Collaborate across platforms

No other sampler can match the across-the-board compatibility and interoperability of MachFive. Because MachFive supports every major audio production platform on the PC and Mac (MAS, VST, Audio Units, HTDM, RTAS, and DXi), you can effortlessly move from one platform to another or collaborate with colleagues who use different audio software. For example, you might write and track a project in Digital Performer or Logic, and then move to Pro Tools for mixing. Just save a MachFive performance in DP or Logic, load it into Pro Tools along with your MIDI tracks, and you’re ready to go. MachFive is the first truly compatible music composition sampler.

Compatibility with all sample libraries

UVI-Xtract, an import utility included with MachFive, allows you to audition and load programs and samples from every major sampler format: Akai, SampleCell, HALion, EXS24 and even Gigasampler. Legacy formats are also supported: insert your Kurzweil, E-mu, or Roland CD-ROMs and convert programs or even the entire disc in just a few clicks. MachFive helps you bring your sound library investment into the 21st century.

Flexible multitimbral performance

Each performance includes 16 parts. Each part has a choice of audio outputs, volume, pan, etc. Each part can receive MIDI data from any channel (for instant stacks) and send its output to unique audio outputs (depending on your host audio software). The Multi is also the place where you may enjoy the absolute power of MachFive’s Expert mode: use keys to open and close multi parts in real time, mix several parts in real time using any MIDI controller, create splits with crossfades between keys the world of sonic creativity just became much larger.

Powerful synthesis engine

The central section of the MachFive window shows the filter, 3 envelopes, and every modulation tool. 6 filter algorithms are provided and everything can be controlled and automated by MIDI. Modulation options are provided at every stage of the synth section. The award-winning UVI-Engine that powers MachFive delivers unlimited polyphony and ultralow latency. It is truly the best-sounding sample playback engine available.

Built-in multichannel waveform editor

MachFive accepts audio samples in all formats from mono to 5.1. The waveform display allows truncating, normalizing, fading, and many other destructive DSP audio manipulations all in real time. Imagine setting the crossfade of a loop in real time while listening to your full sequence. Now you can use realtime DSP tools the way you’ve always wanted: listening to your edits on the fly in the full context of your mix.

Support for 24-bit 192kHz audio

MachFive takes advantage of high definition audio interfaces like the MOTU HD192. The stunning sound quality is apparent as soon as you transpose a sample on the keyboard. You don’t need to keep low-res draft versions of the same samples, either. High-resolution samples can be used at lower sample rates, so go ahead and sample everything at 96kHz or 192kHz.

A surround-capable sampler

MachFive is a true surround sampler. You can play and transpose 5.1 audio files in real time, add multichannel effects, and route the multichannel preset to your host software’s mixer with multiple outputs (if your host software supports these surround features).

Analyze and tune

The MachFive Universal Sampler is a one-stop sound design factory, with tools such as a graphic spectrum analyzer and a built-in tuner with graphic display. When importing samples, you can even ask MachFive to analyze the waveform and guess the root note according to the pitch of the audio.

Drag & drop the way it should be

Creating keymaps has never been easier with MachFive’s drag-and-drop features. Simply drag samples from your desktop or host application to the MachFive keyboard. Drag multiple samples in one step to map chromatically, on white keys only, according to their name, or even according to their pitch, which MachFive can determine automatically. You can also audition samples when importing them, listening to each note as you stretch a keymap over a range of keys.

Modulation and tempo sync

4 LFOs are available per preset. Each LFO can be routed to an assortment of destinations including filter frequency, filter resonance, drive, pitch, pan, and amplitude. Of course, MachFive can sync both the LFO and effects parameters to sequence tempo.

Integrated multi-effects

Each multitimbral part can have up to 4 unique effects. That’s up to 64 effects per performance with instant recall, including reverb, tempo-synced delay, tremolo, chorus (and other modulation effects), filter, BitCrusher, and many others. All settings are saved with the multi for total recall. You can also save effects with each preset to build your ideal sound library. The effect section allows you to leave a part’s effects in place while you audition other parts.
