ASIO and EASI support for the Tassman Software Synthesizer
free upgrade for registered users 15/08/01
Applied Acoustics Systems (AAS), today announced the release of the 2.1
upgrade to the Tassman, a modular software synthesizer, based on physical modeling. The Tassman
2.1 now features support for ASIO and EASI drivers, and adds Emagic's Logic Audio, as well as Orion , to the list of
sequencers in which Tassman functions as a powerful plug-in instrument. Programs already supported include Steinberg's
Cubase line of products, and Cakewalk's SONAR and SONAR XL.
"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.
