MESSE05: Creamware's Synth In A Box
Authentic Sound Box Desktop Synth - The Minimax

CreamWare now offers ASB (Authentic Sound Box) — a line of faithful digital emulations of classic synthesizers housed in an ergonomically shaped desktop enclosure. The first two models — the Minimax ASB and the Profit-5 ASB — have made their debuts at this year’s Musikmesse. The Minimax ASB benefits from the same sound engine used for CreamWare's acclaimed Minimax plug-in for the SCOPE platform. While the sound was designed to be 'genuinely old, other features have been taken to a contemporary level: Minimax fully integrates with your computer via USB and offers extensive polyphony as well as preset management. The patches can be edited directly on the hardware panel or using the supplied remote-control software.

Tweak Those Knobs...
The second member of CreamWare's ASB series is the Profit-5 ASB, which is based on the sound engine of its SCOPE-platform namesake. With up-to-date features similar to those of the Minimax ASB, the user interface closely resembles the original and all efforts were made to create an authentic sound.

Profit-5 - All Boxed Up And Ready To Go
Minimax ASB is scheduled for shipment in the first half of June while the Profit-5 ASB is expected to follow shortly after. CreamWare will announce more members of the ASB family later this year. The street price of the Minimax ASB product is projected to be around 650 EUR (excl. VAT). More info:
