CreamWare Now Shipping Minimax ASB

Announced at this year''s Musikmesse show, CreamWare is currently shipping the Minimax ASB, the first in their Authentic Sound Box (ASB) product line, offering digital emulations of classic synthesizers housed in an ergonomically shaped desktop enclosure.

The Minimax ASB benefits from the same sound engine used for CreamWare's 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 polyphony as well as preset management. The patches can be edited directly on the hardware panel or using the supplied remote-control software.

Connections include two 1/4" analog inputs, two 1/4" outputs, MIDI In/Out/Thru, and USB for connecting to a computer.
