Overview

The Alesis Fusion 6HD keyboard workstation boasts a revolutionary operating system, the Fusion OS, that is constantly being refined by Alesis and its developers to bring you the ultimate workstation available. It also brings together four different synthesis types with a 61-note semi-weighted keyboard, 8-channel hard disk recording, sampling, effects, lots of expansion possibilities, and full-blown sequencing in one awe-inspiring machine.

At the heart of the Fusion 6HD is the Coldfire processor surrounded by seven high-performance DSPs, giving you four synthesis types: sample playback, virtual analog, FM synthesis, and physical modeling. The sample playback synth type provides ultrarealistic play for instruments like grand pianos, drums, and guitars, etc. You can even make your own custom synth instruments by loading your own samples with the onboard sampler. The virtual analog synth brings you the sounds from the award-winning Ion and Micron virtual analog synths, as well as the actual-analog A6 Andromeda. FM synthesis gives you the ability to emulate many well known synthesizers of the 80s. For the physical modeling section Alesis uses the most advanced technology available today for synthesizing wind and reed instruments with incredible clarity.

The Fusion is the only workstation of its kind that can save and load programs off a hard disk (or the removable CompactFlash memory). By storing all your sounds on the internal disk you'll always have your programs available to you. You'll never have to load samples off a slow CD-ROM or floppy-disk.

You can also record up to six channels of 24-bit audio to the 40GB hard drive. The internal sequencer lets you edit your MIDI and multitrack recordings together just like on a computer. DSP effects can be applied to MIDI, audio, or both. You can transfer your mixdown to a computer via USB 2.0.

Upgradeability includes internal RAM (up to 192MB).

An incredible unit for professional recording studios, project or home studio, and even live keyboard players.

Pro Sound a Possible Ledgend

By Norris

from Chicago, IL

Comments about Alesis Fusion 6HD 61-Note Keyboard Workstation:

All the features of this unit can not be found on many more expensive units. I have used this unit on a quick recording session through demo use time. I only had about 15 minutes in a music store with a rep, to get familiar and we recorded the tracks. No problems. I love the features but mostly the unit seems extremely sturdy like the old SR-16 drum machine which is still a ledgend and use by many great musicians for it's ease and lasting sound. That is how th Fusion feals, like it will also be a keyboard used for many years in a wide variety of application.
