The update was more of a complete makeover, and the dozens of new features that have been added catapult it into the position of the top three or four software samplers available today. First of all in the features list is — ta dah! One can actually work on screen with the sampler and have a paper document next to you to refer to things.
No more switching from one window to another! And you can actually learn about the software without a computer present! This kind of innovation in documentation is one that more manufacturers should consider. I wanted a sampler with more features which offered greater ease of programming, more options for sound treatment, and of course, the ability to micro-tonally tune it and have possibilities for scripting.
The promo for Mach Five Three promised all this and more. I then ordered it early mwchfive the year, and after the obligatory four month wait Australia is at the end of a very long and machfibe supply line for many things technological — I just waited three months for a windscreen!
Mwnual required an iLok, and sure enough, a week before the software arrived, I lost my iLok. So there was more delay while I got a new iLok and renewed all the licenses on it. Once all the problems were solved, it was very easy to install, and because of the iLok, I tried installing it on a number of macbfive to see how it would fare: The software worked fine on all of these.
CPU percentages varied from computer to computer. The average CPU percentages for this were Toshiba: The conclusion here is that the more CPU power you can throw at Mach Five, the better, however, if you have an older and slower machine, it will still work just fine with lower polyphony.
The main purpose of the program is to sample, and there are mabual types of sampling machfie. Sample is the traditional sampler, and you can easily do bulk loading and mapping of a set mxchfive samples very easily, although the method is a bit different than is described in the manual.
All kinds of layering, looping, crossfading, etc. Stretch uses granular techniques to play the sample at the same preset tempo at all pitch levels.
If you get the granular settings right, it can be very effective. Slice is a beat-slicer, and you can set the slices automatically, or you can let it do the slicing for you. There manal a number of controls to control the fineness of the slicing and once you have a slicing you like, you can do a one-click mapping of the slices to a MIDI keyboard. It can also save a MIDI-sequence of notes which reflect how the slices can be played to reflect the rhythm of the original.
Ircam Granular is licensed from the French Ircam music research institute. It uses a much more sophisticated kind of granulation to stretch sounds.
Manul can seamlessly time-stretch just about any sound, although you do have to fiddle with the settings a bit. Ircam Stretch uses a phase vocoder FFT algorithm to stretch sound. And I recently made a program with it where I stretched a piano sound, then exceeded the polyphony limits my Toshiba XP i3 machine could deliver, and the glitches made were absolutely gorgeous. So even driven into malfunction, the Ircam Stretch produces gorgeous though maybe unintended machfivf.
Any and every control on all the sampler modules can be MIDI-controlled, and once you drop a sample into the program, you can freely alternate modules, hearing how it can be treated in each one of these. In addition to sampling, there are several kinds of oscillators: Analog is an analog oscillator emulation with the usual suspects: The Analog Stack is eight of these oscillators ganged together, for some work with additive techniques. Noise has eleven different kinds of noise, some with quite effective controls for varying timbre.
FM is a four-oscillator FM synth with twelve algorithms for connecting the four oscillators. This one sounds great.
Wavetable provides dozens of preset wavetables short waveforms to play with, and you can drop and drag your own into them.

Drum is a combination of a gated tone and a gate noise. At first, when I read about it, it sounded very uninteresting, but I was delightfully surprised to find that it made a wide variety of very attractive percussive sounds.
Organ is a drawbar organ emulation. Very good sounding, and very CPU intensive. The program uses a hierarchical organization — Oscillators whether sampled or waveform based are grouped into Keygroups, which are grouped into Programs, which are grouped into Multis, which travel to a Mixer, which has lots of Aux sends and receives. For a recent improvisation, I programmed 16 Programs into a Multi. Each Program had between 10 and samples in it.
Each program was on a different MIDI channel. I played this with my Roland PCR keyboard. The playing of the sampler, and macnfive sound quality was absolutely flawless.
The hierarchical organization means that an effect, for example, can be applied at any level of the hierarchy.

You can have effects applied to Oscillators, Keygroups, Programs, Mabual, or as sends and receives in the Mixer. Routing can get as complex as you want.
Many people buy a sampler for its content. The program though, comes with 45GB of content.
I just went out and bought a portable 1TB drive for these, and then proceeded to load the rest of my 30 years of samples onto the hard drive as well — my whole sonic history on one handy drive! Which of course I then immediately backed up. Some of these are very sample intensive single instruments, such as Piano and Guitar.
As well there are excellent Piano, Bass, Drums and Guitar sample sets. In terms of importing other companies sample libraries, the program is very versatile. Although not listed, I also found it would import many kinds of. When I got the sampler, I scoured the internet for free samples in many of the above formats.
Kontakt usually imported well. I have a large library of VSampler3 samples made over 15 years. For these, I found that VSampler would save them as Soundfont. The 16 Program Multi mentioned above was quickly and easily mostly made with. Scripting is supported, as is a very powerful arpeggiator. Microtonality is also supported. It is extremely easy to implement, and each program can have its own tuning. Having written tuning routines for Reaktor, I know how convoluted that process is.
With Mach Five Three, one simple loads a Scala. And when a program is saved, the tuning data is saved with it. So my requirement that a sampler be able to give me easy, multi-timbral, multi-tuning resources which are recallable instantly is more than met by Mach Five.
For a micro-tonalist, I think Mach Five is the only choice. As mentioned above, there are about 47 different kinds of effects more were added in the latest 3. Each effect has a number of presets and each allows the user to make and store their own presets as well. And of course every control is capable of being controlled by MIDI.
As you can see, the program is very deep, and a LOT of thought has gone into it. Welcome to SoundBytes Magazinea free online magazine devoted to the subject of computer sound and music production.
