Modular instrument and sound design environment based on physical modeling.
The Applied Acoustics Systems Tassman 4 Sound Synthesis Studio gives you virtually endless creative possibilities in an intuitive environment whether you're a newbie or a seasoned professional. From unrivaled re-creations of analog and acoustic instruments to wildly adventurous cinematic textures, the Tassman puts the shape of sound design in your hands. Far from being an emulation of any one vintage synthesizer, the Tassman is an ever-expanding collection of instruments and sound design tools sure to provide inspiration for virtually any project.
Inspiration on Demand: Synths and Presets
The Tassman 4 provides you with a collection of 50 pre-patched instruments, and over 1000 presets right out of the box. You'll find all the classic analog and FM instrument emulations you'd expect in a modular synthesis solution, staggeringly realistic acoustic instruments including various drums and chromatic percussion, string instruments of all shapes and sizes, an electric piano, tonewheel and pipe based organs, and more, complete with the nuances and subtleties that would be simply unattainable with a sample based solution. Add to this instruments that allow you to import your own samples and utilize them as you would any of the other tone generators, and unique hybrid constructions that combine these various elements, and the possibilities are truly endless.
New in Version 4
The new Output Stage includes sync-to-host capability, tempo synced ping-pong delay, first-class reverbs, and an audio recorder. While providing instant control over the playback and recording of your performances, the Output Stage also adds depth, warmth, and dimension to any synth.
• 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.
• Expanded Library
A fantastic new collection of synthesizers and effects created by top sound designers from ILIO and AAS. Their focus has been on the creation of highly usable sounds for musicians and studio professionals that exploit the unique architecture of Tassman.
• 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 plug-in with your favorite host application.
• Improved Algorithms
Improved acoustic objects and generators that sound better than ever.
