Applied Acoustics Systems - don't try using that acronym in polite company -
have updated their highly acclaimed Tassman modular soft synth (Mac OSX and Windows). In fact,
they've made a demo available for download at their website, so you can
check it out for yourself.
Performance Mode Performances provide instant access to your sounds
by combining a synth, a preset, effects and MIDI maps. For quick and easy
access, you can organize performances by style, by type or even by venues.
Output Stage The new Output Stage includes sync-to-host
capability, tempo synced ping-pong delay, reverb and audio recorder. While
providing instant control over playback and recording of your performances,
the Output Stage also adds depth, warmth and dimension to any synth.
Expanded Library New collection of synthesizers and effects
created by top sound designers. Their focus has been on the creation of
highly usable sounds for musicians and studio professionals.
Audio Input Processing The Tassman can now be used as a real time
audio effects processor! For instance, acoustic resonators can be used to
add unique textures to your sound. Use it as an effect plugin with your
favorite host application.
Improved Algorithms Improved acoustic objects and generators that
sound better than ever.
The demo version of Tassman 4 is available at Applied Acoustics Systems'
