CME Launches ASX Advanced Synthesis Expansion for UF and VX Series Keyboards [ Winter NAMM 2008 ]

United States
NAMM - Anaheim, CA (January 17, 2008) - The ASX is a DSP board which goes into the expansion slot of UF and VX series keyboards and provides a flexible synthesis engine, turning the CME MIDI controller keyboard into a stand-alone synthesizer.

The ASX does not rely on playback of sampled sounds but brings sufficient DSP power to run dedicated synth modelling plug-ins. Four plug-ins are included with the ASX, which can be dynamically loaded one at a time: the Minimax - a polyphonic replica of the analog synth legend, the LightWave - a wavetable based virtual analog synth with plenty of modulation possibilities, the B4000 organ - a precise model of the famous tonewheel organ and the Vocodizer - a complex vocoder which is controlled via a dedicated microphone input.

Next to the microphone input, the ASX provides stereo line out, stereo headphone out and a USB port to connect to the ASX Editor Software. The Editor provides graphic interfaces to each plug-in and allows access to all settings of the plug- in. Sounds can be managed, exchanged via an online server and uploaded to the ASX hardware.

Listed at $369 USD, the ASX is now available.

CME is distributed in the US by Kaysound Imports.
