Designed by the Sonic Implants Sound Design Group, MUSE is flexible and diverse, containing roughly 30 Gb of material. It includes a set of orchestral instruments based on the Sonic Implants Complete Symphonic Collection, as well as an extensive collection of Synth Basses, Pads, Leads, FX, Ethnic Instruments, Guitars, Basses and a broad variety of MULTI (aka COMBI) instruments that combine sonic elements to provide quick and easy to use instruments great for working on the fly, or use in live applications. MUSE is also GM compliant and includes some of the most detailed instruments ever designed to conform to the General MIDI specification.
MUSE uses the new Giga Virtual Instrument Engine (GVI) from Tascam which brings power and flexibility to the MUSE content by providing sample streaming & real-time performance capability.
MUSE will be available for Windows in VST, ReWire and stand-alone formats with a MSRP of $499 in Q2 2006. A Mac version is expected to follow in Fall 2006.
