Installation without any problem on macbookpro 10.8.3

I encountered an incompatibility with Live in AU format, but problem solved with the VST plug in

I did not need the manual except for some news since I bought the update to version 2


macbookpro 10.8.3
intel core 2 duo 2.66 GHz
6GB of RAM
sound card Motu Ultralite mk3

I have an internal hard drive dedicated to sound banks so performance is pretty good especially when my sequencer is running in 64bit, so more than enough for most uses. I've used it in the studio with a MacPro Quad with 12g of ram and there it still turns more easily (obviously)


I use MachFive since 2008, the update to version 3 has finally built a search engine and then has a nice evolution of the effects internally as a reverb algorithm to (SparkVerb) I find more good quality IR not to mention the numerous opportunities offered by a virtual sampler as good bill!

In summary, I would not trade this fabulous sampler for anything!
