Cambridge, MA (April 30, 2004)–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 Digidesign Pro Tools, Cakewalk SONAR, and Steinberg 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.
