Montreal, Quebec—July 13, 2017—Applied Acoustics Systems releases the Masala sound bank for the String Studio VS-2 synthesizer and AAS Player plug-ins in collaboration with musician and sound designer Christian Laffitte.
Christian Laffitte returns to the sound design kitchen with his second AAS Sound Bank Series instalment in the form of Masala. Not a mere ensemble of sounds, Masala stages an entire collection of new instruments that you’ll love to learn and discover. These instruments are light and responsive to the touch, full of magic with bounces, buzzes, and sizzles. Their timbres are from nowhere and everywhere—an adventurous mélange of tastes and flavours. These 101 wonderful musical contrivances await to unlock new paths of creativity.
The Masala sound bank is available now. Masala is regularly priced at US$39 but until September 5, 2017, it is available at the introductory price of US$19.
The instant download delivery package includes both a String Studio VS-2 bank file and the free AAS Player plug-in. The AAS Player plug-in runs on both Windows and Mac OS X and supports the VST, Audio Units, AAX Native, and RTAS plug-in formats.
