Is anyone aware of some site blowing out the Tassman 4. I like the physcal modelling that it can do... even Harm Visser did a bunch of sounds for it. If I could get an unsupported verions for cheap I'd be in.

Does that mean if you own the Modelling collection already you can get Objec Delay now?
I don't think so, one will have to "upgrade".

i bug them on twitter sometimes as a reply to things they post.. just asking "Tassman5 sometime soon please?" and they always say "we can't comment on future releases".

The Tassman FAQ is informative-- OSX 10.15 is a factor. Also you can download the old User Area patches as a zip, plus the newer Extras.

Looks like they quietly discontinued it.

Yeah, I pretty much said the same thing on page 1.

Well it seems that you nailed it! :(

The verdict is in. The Tassman book is closed! :(

It was a great ride!
Not even slightly unexpected, but a shame nonetheless.
Makes me wonder about the rest of their plugins as well, now. I dont think a prediction of a cycle of minor facelifts to the synths as new versions, and a couple more synth effects sections recycled as standalone effects plugins would be too much of a stretch, unfortunately. Hard not to be cynical I'm afraid.

But they did release a significant update with Chromaphone 2, no? Or was that also just a repackaging? And what about the new Objeq Delay? (haven't tried it yet)

Chromaphone has much better membrane modules/sound. A 'membrane' (like a conga) sound in Tassman does not sound convincing. It's very 'woody', for a lack of a better word. It's very 'hard'. Whereas, Chromaphone can produce very realistic, soft 'membrane' sounds, much are much more believable. There is a sense of a hand actually hitting a membrane-like surface and not a wood log, which is how Tassman sounds, so at least in this department, Chromaphone seems to have more advanced code than Tassman. But then again, maybe there is a way to obtain this more realistic sound in Tassman with some combination of modules which I haven't found. The basic module doesn't have it though.

To be fair, that did add a new alogithm and some other features, but most of the other V2's (and the evolution of LL 2 thru 4) haven't been that much more than tweaks, reskins and new effects.

Objeq Delay is basically Chromaphone's resonator cut down into an effect, though, and not that far removed from the Corpus effect they built for Ableton to include in Live (alongside the Chromaphone-alike Collision).

The thing that makes me most cynical about where they can go is there's very little evidence of them advancing their technology over the years; almost everything they've released could have been built inside Tassman 2... the core algorithms have been finessed a bit, but its still the same toolbox.
