I just wanted to give my little bit of reaction from a developer's standpoint and as a person who has just released a UVI/MachFive Library for sale. Mind you, I am in no way bashing or downing Kontakt as I have two Player libraries with them and have a good relationship with them and the platform...With that said...
I like the following about MachFive 3
2. Very, very, very easy to navigate and see all of the layers/zones/samples
3. Double Click to enter a numeric value on GuI. Sounds simple, but very helpful
4. I like how the GUI stands alone without any extra logo or icons that need to be there
5. No 4 slot limit for folders
6. No slot limit for scripts. Unlimited scripts and you can place the scripts anywhere in the chain
7. The Effects are very, very professionally done. Very good effects
8. Ircam stretch is my secret weapon, so I can't' divulge too much on how I use it, but wow
9. Fast turnaround on libraries...so you can get right down to selling and making money
10. They launched an email blast to their own list of users. Not sure if I get to have that all the time, but really helps.
I have a ton of features I do like, but the bottom line is the big question everyone wants to know.....What about the iLok thing!
Well....It is not as bad as I thought. In fact, I have had no upset customers at all. Many already have them and I have added a ton of new customers, because there is this little "cult-like" following with UVI of tons of users all over the world. My orders are way more non-US, but who cares
So far, I'm very pleased and I will continue to use both for now, but I have to say I am pleased with the results.
The bottom line with anything....If you create something people want, they will find a way to get it. Best of all, I like being able to offer upgrades that you know won't be cracked. With K, you cross your fingers on offering an upgrade for an existing product, because you are afraid that a non-purchaser will just get the upgrade and crack it. Like many others, your heart drops a little when you see your libraries on the cracked site and you see your sales dramatically dwindle down to nothing. That's what happend to my Neo-Soul Suitcase.....The day it got cracked, I literally almost saw no sales and the site that cracked it told me that I should be grateful to him that he chose my product, because it was "free marketing" for me....
Here is my product below:
Gospel Musicians releases Pure Sine Synth Plugin for UVI Player Workstation and MachFive 3.
Capitalizing on UVI/MachFive's built in wavetable and analog synthesis, Pure Sine focuses on bringing pure sines, pulses, saws, square, and triangle waves used in today's modern hip-hop, R&B, trance, dub-step, and urban genres. Pure Sine's interface focuses on the most important synthesis controls in order to quickly program leads, basses, kicks, 808s, pads, effects, blips and a new urban stacked sine pad used in live gigs and on many pop albums. The only samples used for the sound creation are the EP's and strings to produce the sine pad, but the rest of the waveforms are produced using MachFive's extensive wavetable and analog synthesis algorithms.
Pure Sine takes advantage of UVI's advanced scripting engine to provide an extensive GUI and built-in scripts to take advantage of the classic analog sounding legato, portamento, and glide functions needed to produce the classic slide/glide sound for synth basses and leads that do not re-trigger if played in a legato fashion.
