The Alesis Fusion is ready to be the future of your home studio with constantly evolving sounds and updated OS!

The Fusion 6HD boasts a revolutionary operating system, the Fusion OS, that is constantly being refined by Alesis and its developers to bring you the ultimate workstation available. It also brings together 4 different synthesis types with a 61-note semi-weighted keyboard, 8-channel hard disk recording, sampling, effects, lots of expansion possibilities, and full-blown sequencing in one awe-inspiring machine.

At the heart of the Fusion 6HD is the Coldfire processor surrounded by 7 high-performance DSPs, giving you 4 synthesis types: sample playback, virtual analog, FM synthesis, and physical modeling. The sample playback synth type provides ultrarealistic play for instruments like grand pianos, drums, and guitars, etc. You can even make your own custom synth instruments by loading your own samples with the onboard sampler. The virtual analog synth brings you the sounds from the award-winning Ion and Micron virtual analog synths, as well as the actual-analog A6 Andromeda. FM synthesis gives you the ability to emulate many well known synthesizers of the 80s. For the physical modeling section Alesis uses the most advanced technology available today for synthesizing wind and reed instruments with incredible clarity.

The Fusion is the only workstation of its kind that can save and load programs off a hard disk (or the removable CompactFlash memory). By storing all your sounds on the internal disk you'll always have your programs available to you. You'll never have to load samples off a slow CD-ROM or floppy-disk.

You can also record up to 6 channels of 24-bit audio to the 40GB hard drive. The internal sequencer lets you edit your MIDI and multitrack recordings together just like on a computer. DSP effects can be applied to MIDI, audio, or both. You can transfer your mixdown to a computer via USB 2.0.

Upgradeability includes internal RAM (up to 192MB).

An incredible unit for professional recording studios, project or home studio, and even live keyboard players.

Latest Fusion update!

Fusion OS is a completely upgradeable platform that will continue to improve with each and every release. There are now hundreds of new program sounds, mixes, and arpeggiator patterns, with more free sounds available via download. This update as well as all future updates to the software and the sounds can be found at: http://www.alesis.com/index.php?id=58,59,0,0,1,0

Please contact your Alesis tech support representative with any questions.

Roland s groundbreaking V-Synth now has a travel-friendly offspring.

The XT is a portable new V-Synth with some spectacular tricks up its sleeve and enough synthesis and audio-processing power to make heads spin. It s fully stocked with a potent array of synthesis types, including the V-Synth s famous Elastic Audio Synthesis engine, plus analog-synth modeling, vocal modeling, and classic D-50 emulation. Add to that a rich lineup of COSM© effects, external audio processing, a touch-sensitive color display, eight universal edit knobs, and you have an instrument that redefines rack/tabletop technology.

Standard or Surreal The original V-Synth s factory soundset was a showcase of twisting, bending, otherworldly sounds. But the V-Synth is no one-trick pony, as evidenced by the new batch of unique playable patches created by an A-list group of star artists and producers. The patches might sound classic at first touch, but they explode with animated life when modulated. Start on familiar terrain, then hit the launchpad V-Synth style! Sound Shaper Experts onboard! The XT s innovative Sound Shaper function allows you create new sounds with the virtual know-how of professional sound designers. By selecting your destination sound type whether a pad, bass, lead sound, etc. this macro function guides you quickly through relevant parameters while editing. Complex editing is made easy.

Audio Inputs The XT provides a variety of input paths for sampling and external-audio processing. You can sample directly into the synth via its audio inputs (XLR and 1/4-inch), you can import samples through USB (WAV and AIF format), or you can feed live audio to the XT for processing in real time. The front-panel Hi-Z input allows the XT to function as a unique and powerful effects rack for guitar or other instruments, the XLR input (with phantom power) allows the XT to be utilized as a full-blown vocoder. USB audio streaming enables computer-aided sound design and additional audio-processing possibilities.

Flexible Hardware Design Physically speaking, the XT is the most flexible rack unit Roland has ever manufactured. It can be mounted in a rack, where it can be positioned flush or tilted and locked at an angle that best suits your working environment. Or, if you prefer, you can take the XT out of the rack, and place it on a flat surface. Its angled profile is designed to make the XT work perfectly as a standalone tabletop unit. Whether used in a rack or on a tabletap, the XT s large, color touch-screen display provides luxurious navigation, and its row of eight universal edit knobs makes using the synth fast, friendly, and expressive.

VC-1 & VC-2 Built-in In addition to its user sampling, elastic-audio manipulation, and analog-synth modeling, the XT comes pre-installed with Roland s VC-1 (D-50 emulator) and VC-2 (Vocal Designer). It s like getting two additional instruments for free!

VC-1 The VC-1 transforms the XT into Roland s legendary D-50 synthesizer. Relive the D-50 in all its glory. Every circuit and precise detail of this legendary synthesizer has been faithfully modeled. It doesn t just sound like a D-50, it is a D-50.

VC-2 The VC-2 brings advanced vocal modeling to the V-Synth XT platform from legacy vocoders to massive choir models with a level of expression never before achieved from conventional voice-processing algorithms.
