Creamware Unveil Pulsing Upgrade

Pulsar II v3 - New Software Release for the DSP Powered Virtual Studio      11/09/01
Version 3.0 of CreamWare's Pulsar DSP Music Production System is scheduled for release in mid-September, 2001. The new software boasts over one hundred improvements, from slight enhancements to completely new integral parts of the system. Highlights of the new Pulsar II v3 include:
  • New DSP effects, including the sophisticated MasterVerb reverb.
  • Additional synthesizers based on Virtual Analog and Vector synthesis.
  • The STS-2000P Sample Player (64 stereo voices, compatible with all major libraries).
  • Hundreds of new instrument and effects presets.
  • Numerous user interface enhancements to make Pulsar even more intuitive and easy to work with.
  • Switchable screen sets, keyboard shortcuts.
  • 64-channel ASIO driver, AC3 digital output via S/PDIF.
  • Optional XTC mode, allowing the user to use the Pulsar instruments and effects like VST Instruments and VST plug-ins, directly from within a VST-compatible host application (Windows OS only).

    New Pulsar II customers also receive the ProPack, which includes the following:
  • A professional 24/48-channel mixing console adapted from the mixer previously available only in the high-end SCOPE /SP system.
  • An additional effects suite containing a new Vocoder, De-esser, Stereo Expander, Pattern Delay, Syncable Filter, Overdrive with tube characteristic, syncable filter and much more.
  • Lightwave, a new Wavetable synthesizer with flexible filter configurations and manifold modulation features.
  • The highly acclaimed STS-3000 DSP Sampler.
  • The Modular Synthesizer V2 with over 140 modules and 80 pre-patched synthesizers. Although the Pulsar software has changed, the hardware is the same. The Pulsar II PCI card hosts six 32-bit SHARC DSPs, from 20 to 28 channels of audio I/O (in various combinations of analog, S/PDIF, AES/EBU, ADAT and Z-Link, depending on which of the four currently available options the customer selects) and an extensive set of ultra-low-latency audio drivers to communicate with all major audio programs for Windows or MacOS. Existing Pulsar users can choose between two v3 update options: Standard or Pro. The standard update is free of charge, as usual. The Pro Update, which contains the ProPack, is available for US$139 (149 Euro). Both updates can be obtained at the CreamWare website, or from official CreamWare dealers worldwide. Pulsar II v3 has a proposed retail price of US $1,444.
