Applied Acoustics Systems has launched an online library for registered users of the Tassman Sound Synthesis Studio and Lounge Lizard EP-2 Electric Piano.
Providing an expanding online database of new Tassman instruments and presets for both products, the new user library allows Tassman and Lounge Lizard users to exchange their creations, as well as offers new users a wide range of examples to develop their own synths and sounds.
“One of the key issues we wanted to address in the most recent updates to Tassman and Lounge Lizard was encouraging our users to work together as a community in exploiting the full creative potential of these instruments, and the new import/export features were implemented in both products with this is mind,” said AAS CEO Marc Pierre Verge. “Creating a place where our users could easily exchange their creations was the last piece of the puzzle, and I'm very happy we're now be able to provide this. It will certainly be exciting to watch the user library grow in the coming months.”
In other AAS news, Berklee College of Music has added the Tassman Sound Synthesis Studio in the Modular Functions and Signal Flow and Physical Modeling/Additive Synthesis courses for Music Synthesis majors.
"Tassman provides us with not only a powerful production tool, but also a highly effective teaching tool," said Kurt Biederwolf, chair of Berklee's Music Synthesis department. "The maturity and sophistication of software synthesis has allowed our Music Synthesis department to move in interesting new directions, and we are excited about the inclusion of Tassman in support of our cutting-edge courses."
