    Looks like it was worth it. For those of us who already own v1, at least, it's a no-brainer.

    As a version 1 user, I just ordered mine today. This has been a long wait. I hope that it is worth it!

    Let us know what you think about it. I've got the first version of MachFive.

    How does this MachFive 2 differ from Kontakt 2 in functionality? The upgrade to MachFive is $200. The crossgrade to Kontakt 2 is $300, and I've seen a sale once where it was $200 I'm pretty sure.

    If you're thinking about using MachV to play Kontakt samples, make sure to verify compatability with kontakt scripting first.

    Not exactly sure what the "scripting" means, but I did read on the MOTU site: "MachFive 2 transparently loads every major sample format. From Giga to EXS, SampleCell to Kontakt, Apple Loops to REX files, third-party formats load without any conversion."

    do some research about the scripting. Being able to load kontakt samples and giga samples is mandatory feature in any modern soft sampler. They can pretty much all do that. However, the scripting feature is being used extensively in libraries such as Kirk Hunter's. Just an FYI. I doubt MachV is handling the scripting, as non of the other soft samplers are either. Only the real Kontakt does.

    There is a big difference between samples and instruments.
    Intelligent programming makes the samples sound in an instrument.
    Maybe MachFive reads the samples, but I'm sure you will have to reprogram
    a lot of details like filters, etc.
    Kontakts scripting can't be converted in any format.
