I just released my first sound library for MachFive 3:
Scattered Entity Vol. 1 is the first library in a series of releases for MOTU's MachFive 3. Over time an entire universe of sounds for this extremely versatile electronic instrument will be created, combining the beauty and natural expression of acoustic instruments with the unlimited possibilities of state-of-the-art sound design.
Specifications and content:
- 4.38 GB of samples (1330 wavs/stereo/48 Khz/24 Bit).
121 patches/instruments + 8 variations, combining all synthesis methods available in MachFive.
- Multisampled instruments, pure and and combined with electronics
Experimental and abstract textures
Cinematic and ominous soundscapes and drones
Processed field recordings
Orchestral sounds derived from orchestral recordings of my own music
- Celtic harp with 27 strings - multisampled with several velocity layers and round robin, harp glissandi, bisbigliando and more
Pedal timpani, multisampled at three pitches with up to 5 velocity layers and 8x round robin, played with hard and soft beaters. Different articulations, swells, flams and pedal glissandi.
Other string instruments (violin, piano, cello)
Chromatic and achromatic percussion (Thai gongs, Tamtam, bowed and beaten vibraphone, tibetan singing bowls, Glockenspiel)
20 patches have custom scripting for extended sound manipulation features and a user interface (check out the videos below), all non-scripted patches have the Modwheel and the 8 Macros assigned in the info tab, many also use Aftertouch.
Scripting by Iain Morland.
All acoustic instrument-samples in this library were recorded with 3 Neumann microphones in L-C-R at 48 Khz/24 Bit, a U87 as the center mic - a stereo set of KM 184 for L-R. The field recordings were made with a pair of Sennheiser shotguns inside windshield cages with dead cats, mounted on a boom recorded onto a Tascam HD-P2 recorder.

All demos below were produced entirely with MachFive 3 using only patches from Scattered Entity Vol. 1, no post-processing was applied apart from a limiter on the outputs and some volume automation, if several instances of MachFive were used in a track. If a demo does use 3rd party reverb, this is mentioned in the track title.
