The Synthesis of fine Plug-ins and compact Form.
For your CME UF or VX Keyboard Controller.
Plug-ins are plug-ins and hardware is hardware - right? Plug-ins reside inside a computer and hardware is as unflexible as term „hardware“ suggests. Well yes, it used to be that way.
Today a new breed of products is coming up which combines the advantages of software and hardware in a powerful new way. Thanks to the ample performance of latest DSP technology, the innovations which we saw in software plug-in technologies are moving into conventional hardware products.
Welcome the ASX - the advanced synthesis expansion for your CME master keyboard. The ASX stores up to eight DSP software plug-ins and can load and perform any one at a time. Three plug-ins are shipping with every ASX board: the wild Minimax, the inspiring LightWave and the charismatic B4000. Number four comes as a free online registration bonus: download and install the Vocodizer, another awesome musicial tool in amazing quality.
Sounds expensive? Yes but in fact the ASX is a bargain, as it efficiently combines the CME host with a latest state-of-the-art synthesis engine.

Talking Quality... the ASX plug-ins, unlike common sample-based expander modules, precisely model the synthesis process of the real synth. This means you are playing the „real thing“, not just recordings of it. You play a dynamic model, which allows expression and access to all aspects of the sound and its modulation. That is why, compared to sample based systems, you will find the sound to be much more dynamic, richer, more detailed and more lively.
The ASX Editor Software for Windows (Mac OSX in preparation) provides the different plug-in GUIs and access to all sound settings. Presets and Preset Banks can easily be managed, saved to Preset Files, and uploaded to the ASX hardware - allowing you to store your personal favorite sounds on the ASX board. Take them with you!
Hungry for new sounds? The ASX Editor features innovative online functionality: choose the Online Sounds tab and let the ASX Editor connect to our online Sound Server on the internet. Here you will get a list of the latest and most popular sounds for your currently loaded plug-in - uploaded and reviewed by other ASX users. Just one mouse click will load and engage that sound - browsing for sounds has never been that convenient ever before!
