We talked about the new Plugiator – which is sort of born out of the demise of CreamWare in our pre-NAMM podcast. The MiniMax and ASB synths of old were considered to be pretty hot stuff, so now that there’s a new unit on the scene that ships with four synths as standard (only one at a time folks) and a further four available as a purchased add-on it’s not a bad looking system for the money ($399 +$119 for the extra synths). We also learn that there are other synths in development that can also be loaded onto the Plugiator. Presumably, this is still up to a maximum of 8 at any one time.

Only 10 to 15 voices? That's the power of an old 14 DSP card?!

Thank heavens, someone is finally doing that. All the DSP power in my current rack, and only a single-use program environment available! Hooray for Creamware, if only Access and Waldorf would loosen their asses a little, and we could have something else to do with our Viruses than run alongside the rest of the herd ..
