MOTU MachFive 3 - Software Sampling Engine For Mac

MOTU MachFive 3 is the new upgraded version of their popular Mach 5 virtual software sampler. MachFive 3 once again raises the bar with regards to how a virtual sampler should perform. No matter what you've got as your desktop production environment of choice MOTU MachFive 3 will fit right in, delivering state-of-the-art features and performance.

MachFive 3 provides cross-platform compatibility for the latest Mac and Windows OS, including Universal Binary support for Mac Intel CPUs. Open third party sample libraries directly - no time consuming conversion required. Switch between Mac and Windows platforms. All instrument plug-in formats supported, as well as stand-alone capability.



Four 8GB DVDs are included delivering a staggering 32 GB of instruments and loops. Featured sounds include 8GB Grand Piano, surround-sound drums and orchestral instruments, a wide array of loops, ethnic and acoustic instruments, as well as a "best of" collection from the award-winning Vienna Symphonic Library. Choose instruments from a wide variety of basses, guitars, keyboards, drums, voices, and sound effects.

MOTU MachFive 3's Sound Design tools include up 128 samples per key, oscillators and organ generators, multi-point envelopes, tempo-synchronized LFOs, comprehensive effects (including a convolution reverb), rules based programming, and LoopLab for creation and manipulation of MIDI and audio loops.

System Requirements

Mac systems

  • Intel Core Duo CPU 1.83 GHz or faster
  • multiple processors or a multi-core processor is required
  • Intel Core 2 Duo CPU 2.0 GHz or faster recommended
  • Macs with PowerPC CPUs are NOT supported.
  • Mac OS X version 10.8, 10.7, 10.6, or 10.5 (v10.5.8 or later is required).

Windows systems

  • Intel Core Duo CPU 1.83 GHz or faster
  • multiple processors or a multi-core processor is required
  • Intel Core 2 Duo CPU 2.0 GHz or faster recommended
  • Windows 8, Windows 7 or Vista (32- or 64-bit; Vista SP2 or later is required)

Hard disk format

  • Due to the large size of MachFive’s factory soundbank UFS files, the disk containing the soundbank files must be able to support individual files larger than 4 GB. This is determined by the disk’s file system format.
  • The default file system format for disk drives on Mac OS X and Windows are compatible with MachFive’s soundbank files:
  • Mac OS X: HFS+ (Mac OS Extended, journaled or unjournaled)
  • Windows: NTFS
  • The FAT32 format is not compatible with MachFive’s soundbank files, as it does not allow file sizes greater than 4 GB.

Other Requirements

  • A minimum of 2 GB of RAM is required. However, since MachFive loads samples (or a portion of the samples) into the computer's RAM add as much RAM as possible to your computer; 4 GB is recommended. MachFive also allows samples to be streamed directly from disk thus freeing up RAM.
  • Large hard drive(s), preferably at least 100 GB. The disk on which the sounds are stored must be a fast hard disk. See “Hard disk format”, below, for additional requirements.
  • An iLok USB Smart Key from Pace Anti-Piracy. MachFive 3 is compatible with iLok 1 and 2. PLEASE NOTE: an iLok key is not included in the MachFive 3 package. If you are are upgrading from a previous version of MachFive, you can use your MachFive version 1 or 2 iLok for your new version 3 license, which is downloaded from ilok.com.
  • A free USB port for the iLok USB key. Note that if you have multiple products which use iLoks for authorization you can consolidate multiple authorizations onto a single iLok; see this tech note.
  • A CD/DVD disk drive for installation.
  • A digital audio workstation program or other program that hosts AU, VST, or RTAS instrument plug-ins. Alternatively, MachFive can be used as a standalone application.
