Digidesign Previews Upcoming Transfuser Virtual Instrument

Daly City, CA — Digidesign today unveiled the Transfuser™ Preview, a free three-month prerelease version of Transfuser, a new upcoming RTAS® virtual instrument plug-in for Pro Tools® software. Transfuser is a real-time loop, phrase, and groove creation virtual instrument designed for quickly and easily creating, manipulating, and performing loop- and rhythm-based music on the fly within Pro Tools. It also offers users a quick and easy way to modify existing loop libraries to breathe new life into their creations.

Ideal for electronic, hip-hop, and dance music production, remixing, and anyone working with loops, Transfuser comes packed with a variety of loops and phrases to get started with creating right away. Users can create grooves using multiple drum and effects modules, slice and tag loops in real-time, convert loops into MIDI patterns/drum kits, and replace sounds in existing loops on the fly. Transfuser supports full drag and drop of Pro Tools regions and audio files directly from a computer browser, and offers powerful live performance-oriented features for both creative arranging and performing of grooves.

“The minute you start using this instrument, you immediately realize its creative potential,� says Dusty DiMercurio, Digidesign’s personal studio products marketing manager. “With Transfuser, you can easily drag a loop in, apply intelligent randomization to re-order loop slices, layer another groove on top of it with one of the drum machines, add some of Transfuser’s funky effects, apply sequenced automation to any number of parameters—all in real time without a hiccup. In virtually no time at all, you’ve got a really cool and unique groove.�

DiMercurio continues, “While Transfuser will be especially appealing to electronic musicians, it’s really ideal for pretty much anyone who works with loops, as it allows you to instantly reinvent them with totally unique results.�

For a limited time through June 25, 2008, Digidesign is offering a free download of the Transfuser Preview to every Pro Tools|HD®, Pro Tools LE®, and Pro Tools M-Powered™ user. This free prerelease version of Transfuser is fully functional for three months, and enables all Pro Tools users to discover and experiment with the capabilities of Transfuser. To download the Transfuser Preview visit the Digidesign website at www.digidesign.com/transfuserpreview.
