AAS products now fully integrated into the Mac OS X environment 07/10/03
Applied Acoustic Systems today announced the release of the Audio Units version of the Tassman 3 Sound Synthesis Studio and Lounge Lizard EP-2 Electric Piano.
Based on AAS' award winning physical modeling technology, the Tassman is an entirely modular
sound design solution, offering a near infinite range of creative possibilities for realistic emulation
of acoustic instruments, analog and FM synthesizers, and unique hybrid constructions simply not
possible by any other means of synthesis. Out of the box Tassman comes with 50 instruments and over 1000 presets to get you started.
"Now with Audio Units plug-in format support, we have now completed the full integration of all our
products into the Mac OS X environment," said Philippe Dérogis, CTO of Applied Acoustics Systems.
"With these releases, we are very happy to welcome back Digital Performer and Logic users."
The Audio Units version of Tassman 3 and Lounge Lizard EP-2 will be available as a free upgrade to
all registered users from the Applied Acoustics Systems' website.
Lounge Lizard EP-2 is an unprecedented recreation of the classic electric piano sound, and a
"uniquely adaptable" solution for the creation of "living, breathing" custom tones. Unanimously
acclaimed by the industry's top publications and musicians as "one of the most impressive virtual
instruments” available today, the Lounge Lizard's "punchy, organic" tone and "unbeatable value"
have made it the electric piano of choice for many of the world's top studios.

The Tassman 3 and Lounge Lizard EP-2 are available now for Mac OS X and Windows systems at a
suggested retail price of US$ 499 and US$ 249 respectively.
