CreamWare is now shipping their second ASB (“Authentic Sound Box”) product: the Pro-12 ASB, a faithful reproduction of a synth classic from the eigthies.
The Pro-12 ASB benefits from the same sound engine used for CreamWare’s Minimax ASB product.
While the sound was designed to be “genuinely old”, other features have been taken to a contemporary level: Pro-12 integrates with your computer via USB and offers 12 voices of polyphony. Patches can be edited directly on the hardware panel or using the supplied remote-control software which is available for both Windows and OS-X.
The Pro-12 is now available at a suggested retail price of 789 EUR. For more information, visit the CreamWare website.
