After much delay, CreamWare have started to ship their "Tactive Instrument Modeller" Noah, is now available. We caught up with Noah and arch keyboardist Geoff Downes – from mega 80’s fusion band Asia at the recent Musik MESSE show. If you’ve not already seen his glowing praise for the unit –click here
Unlike the fixed architecture of conventional synthesizers, Noah is flexible enough to be configured with various instruments and synthesis methods via software plug-ins. The following instruments are now included with Noah:
Minimax - The first accurate reproduction of the most-loved analog synth of all time. B-2003 - Model of a drawbar organ in the tradition of the Hammond B3™. Vectron Player - Vector synthesizer, inspired by the legendary Prophet VS™. Lightwave - Wavetable synthesizer with 128 waveforms. Six-String - Physical modelling synthesizer for stringed instruments. Sequential Circuits™ Pro-One - As a special offer until June 30, 2003, this 1:1 port of the analog cult synthesizer (engineered in co-operation with the original developers) is also included in Noah for free.
Noah is now available at CreamWare dealers worldwide at the introductory price of 1,795 Euro net. Noah EX, the expanded version which features twice the power for the synthesis engine is available for 2,295 Euro net until June 30, 2003. http://www.creamware.de/en/Home/default.asp
