Whew this creamware thread is giving me GAS. I'm so tempted to order all three of these boxes right now. :bounce:

I guess I should get my JP-6 project wrapped up first...

the ASX board for CME controllers is perhaps the most interesting Creamware product of the moment. It's kind of like a mini Noah, featuring Minimax, B4000, Lightwave and Vocodizer

The upcoming Solaris keyboard from John Bowen might very well get many Scope algorithms as John is associated with SonicCore.

Thanks. Sounds great. Are all of the synth sounds the Prodyssey? I have one, but haven't had much time to play with it.

Killer demo! You haver to send that to Sonicore. They kick the a*s of every other VA out there by a factor of 20.

I'm very close to going all-in on a Scope system loaded with Bowen synths. My brain is saying yes, but my heart wants a Voyager.

for polyphonic synths it is better to use the ASBs instead of the Scope system.
It just takes to many DSP-resources on a Scope board to play for instance the Pro12 in 12voice polymode, this wil take up almost 10 DSPs or so....ASB is equipped with the "new" Sharc, which can provide way much power from a singel DSP chip (almost 40 times more I understand)

When using lets say 3 synths in 8 voice poly , you prob need a Powerpulsar...


Scope is more for routing and al those things in your DAW, synths is better done outboard...

Yes, all Prodyssey. FX as well, only some reverb on one of the tracks.

Thanks. There are a lot of cool sounds in the box.

I've found the presets to be really good starting points, which make learning much easier than starting from scratch. I'd definately recommend the Prodyssey to someone just starting into synthesis (like me).

The title of this thread always makes me think of Jerry Seinfeld

And whats the deal with these creamware synths? I mean, are they analog or not, people? Who came up with this idea? And whats the deal with airline food...

:lol: I guess its only funny if u are a Seinfeld fan.

I'm glad to know that the Prodyssey's only been out for so long, and it's already being used by musicians in their work.

Thanks. I won't send it to Soniccore because I most likely won't get an answer from them.
...but my heart wants a Voyager.
Not a bad choice at all :wink:

If you send the demo in, you've got nothing to lose. If you don't send it in, you've got nothing to gain.
And, it emphasizes what I said before, about someday planning to get a Prodyssey.

my only fear is that in the future, when usb is a forgotten protocol, this company might be out of business. i went through that with sequential circuits, but my P5 is still 100% usable.

i dig the idea of these boxes though.

Nova Musik is currently rocking the Pro12 for $575... that seems like a bargain methinks... Tho I could afford it, I just haven't quite gotten to that level of being able to drop that on a single purpose poly... and a VA at that... Nord leads always look very tempting in that price range (especially with the multimode filter), but I also know that with the Pro12, you are specifically buying a "sound". still very tempting.
Do you even post on vse bro?

Neither the ASBs nor the Klangboxes depend on USB connections. Their USB plug is just an additional option for those who don't have free midi ports in their studio. The editor software can communicate with the boxes via USB or any available midi port.
