1/2 price sale going on now (11/23/2016)

I've got an older version of Tassman, and the Ultra Analog - not the ver.2.

I wonder if that would qualify me for the owner of 2 deal? I'll probably have to write them.
I like the sound quality of their stuff.

When you put a Modelling Collection upgrade in the cart in AAS site, it asks for the serial numbers, I think you can test if your serial numbers are accepted there.

Which version of Tassman do you have?

With Ultra Analog, try the demo of version 2 since the GUI and the interaction has changed drastically. See if you like that change.
I like the sound quality of their stuff.
I do too, especially Tassman, despite the fact that it has a few issues and hasn't seen any serious updates. It's still a powerhouse.

However, I like Chromaphone and String Studio a lot as well. Maybe even more so than Tassman in some respects.

All of their stuff is great quality. I am one of the ever hopefuls that we will see an updated Tassman soon. They have been very consistent at updating their other products. It is time.

Love AAS. They're one of the most musically coherent developers ITB.

Tassman 4 was relased over 12 years ago, during first half of 2004.

It is now at v4.1.8. Except going 64 bit in 2010, how much of an update is that of the original v4.0.0 version?

It goes to show that the AAS guys have PhD in Acoustics, and not in basic math :D

Yes, entering the serial #'s worked.
A quick look through the collection, and it seems they're much easier to use than Tassman without being dumbed down.

Not too hot about no stand alone versions.

But overall it seems like a pretty good deal.
