    You would be out of luck on the Kontakt/Kompakt player stuff. I doubt that would import into Mach Five.

    There are some things that they did right, which no one else really did. It's not on the same level as GigaStudio 3 or Kontakt 2 in terms of overall maturity. It sounds like Kontakt is the logical choice for you.

    I agree with Bruce. I always thought the Mach 5 was a sampler to be added on to Digital Performer primarily. So I always thought of it in the same class as the sampler that ships with Logic.

    Where as GS3 and Kontakt are standalone monsters.

    Mostly my opinion though.

    Yeah, pretty sure Mach5 is Mac only, sorry meant to reply to your email!

    How is the performance of Cubase SX2 on a dual 3G Xeon? You're one of the few people I know with this setup.

    FYI, Mach5 is also on the PC.

    It rocks.

    My average composition is spread out over 4 computers with track counts over 100 (Ive never actually counted). On average I use one convolution verb, left on all the time but Ive used up to 4 with delays, eqs, and other things going on.

    Highest CPU count Ive ever had is 50%

    I still get the very occassional software glitch but he computer itself is absolutely rock-solid. Does its job day in, day out, and does it easy.
