Topic: Atmosphere opens in Mach 5 !!!! coolest thing ever.

    Talking Atmosphere opens in Mach 5 !!!! coolest thing ever.

    Over the last couple days - the guys on yahoo/spectrasonics forum came up with a way to make atmosphere open inside Mach 5.

    Turns it into a huge multi part atmoshphere.!

    Many moons ago I was hoping this would be possible but Eric said NOT.

    All credit for figuring this out goes to the guys in the yahoo forum. I just wanted to spread the word because the patches I have been able to create in the last few minutes are simply huge.
    It's truely a Triton on mega steriods.

    Eric - seriously man - please reconsider this in your products. having multi part atmospheres (plus other cool libs added in) is off the hook.


    Here is a copy of the info:

    I just successfully got the Atmosphere.dat file to work in Mach Five.
    All I did was:

    1) Create a folder in the Mach five sounds folder.

    2) renamed the folder to Atmosphere.M5b

    3) copied the Atmosphere.dat file into the folder

    4) changed the name of the Atmosphere.dat file to Plugsound Free.dat

    5) rescaned Mach Five Sounds Folder and Voila! Atmosphere is now a
    multi-timbral plugin.

    All you lose is the ability to separately edit the dual-layers as you
    can in the Atmospher
    plugin, but what I just gained in usability far outweighs that loss.

    Whoever started this thread, thanks for the idea!~ I'll be using
    Atmosphere a helluva lot
    more than I ever did before.

    That's pretty cool...

    But, how does this differ than just opening multiple instances of Atmosphere?

    Or is there something to the Mach 5, programming wise, that makes this more favorable?

    Just curious...

    fully recallable multi's plus layering with other libs.

    The multi I just did was
    3 atmospheres
    2 things from distorted reality
    a vocal choir from heart of africa

    edited the attacks and decays of each part individually.
    panned and mixed.
    added some effects.

    SAVED as a performance for one button total recall.

    Picture how much time it would take to open up each part as a VI and add plugs for effects and remember all the panning and mixing.

    That's why I wish companies would allow their .dat files to be accessed by either kontakt or M5.

    I have long missed the depth of character synths that have big multi/performance modes vs. soft synths.
    This was a big step back into that sonic depth and fatness.

    Re: Atmosphere opens in Mach 5 !!!! coolest thing ever.

    Please be aware that this is very much an unsupported thing....it would be a mistake for anyone to do a lot of work that relies on this trick, as it is highly likely to break patches and songs in the future as the Mach Five gets updated. You don't have access to the layer parameters and other customizations for example and this will get worse as the Mach Five gets upgraded to newer versions....since Atmosphere/Trilogy support in Mach Five is not advertised by either Spectrasonics or MOTU.

    So don't be surprised if things based on this trick change, break compatibility and stop working in the future....

    Sorry to rain on the parade, but you should know what you are getting into.

    I figured as much and its a bummer.

    This sort of functionality is a big boon to those wanting to combine libs into really animated multi's.

    I hope that the reason spectrasonics is reluctant to support this might be because atmosphere will become multi-part (more than two) in the future.

    If not - it would be nice to see spectrasonics play nice with M5, especially since they both use the UVI engine.

    Does anyone make a plug in that is basically a host for other plugs.?

    ie- a mac version of V stack that works as a plug within a host sequencer?

    Have you tried Chainer?

    PC only - damn!

    Mac version would be great.

    Cripes, sorry, didn't notice the Mac requirement.

    The only things I can find are standalone. Sorry.
