In an apparent accidental leak of information, Alesis has revealed details on a new keyboard line, the Fusion Workstation.
To be initially offered in two models, the Fusion Workstations offer multiple forms of synthesis (virtual analog, sample playback, FM, and physical modeling) along with 8 tracks of 24-bit audio recording. Polyphony is dependent on the synthesis types used, but Alesis reports up to 180 voices with the sample playback engine.
In addition to analog I/O, the Fusions also offer an aux analog stereo output, S/PDIF output (coax and optical), ADAT output, USB, 8 dedicated analog inputs for recording purposes, MIDI In/Out/Thru, as well as a SATA connector to addhard drive capacity as needed. CD-RW support is planned.
Alesis has created a special web site for these new keyboards, available at www.fusionsynth.com.
