"Over the last few months we've seen a strong community being built around Tassman, by both DXi and VST users" said Scott Monteith, Public Relations Director at AAS. "Providing that community with cutting edge tools, and the resources to utilize them to their maximum potential is our primary focus.
We are very excited about being able to share those same tools and resources with the Logic, and Orion user communities".
The Tassman comes with hundreds of prepatched synths and presets. The powerful physical modeling technology used allows for the construction of realistic acoustics strings and percussions, acurate recreations of classic analog synthesizers with true analog warmth, and completely unique hybrid instruments. Users also have access to an ever-expanding list of new patches from the AAS website. The modular nature of the Tassman also means that any synth can be customized. Users may also construct instruments from scratch, and are encouraged to submit their own creations for inclusion in the online library.
The Tassman 2.1 will be available as of August 3, 2001, as a free upgrade to registered users, and sell for $399.The software functions on Windows 95, 98, 2000 and ME.
