Alesis has delivered affordable synths and digital recording for years, and now their new Fusion Workstations pack both into a single unit! The Fusion 6HD and 8HD Workstations bring together four different types of synthesis with 8-channel hard disk recording, sampling, effects, lots of expansion possibilities, and full-blown MIDI and audio sequencing in one awe-inspiring machine.

Alesis Fusion 8HD Keyboard Workstation at a Glance:

Four distinct synthesis types

8-channel 24-bit hard disk recording built in

Expandable RAM plus CompactFlash memory and optional CD-R

Four distinct synthesis types Available as the Fusion 8HD with an 88-note weighted keyboard or the Fusion 6HD with 61 semi-weighted keys, the Fusion workstations are built around Alesis' powerful Coldfire processor surrounded by seven high-performance DSPs. This massively powerful processing core starts by giving you four synthesis types:

Sample playback for ultra-realistic instruments like grand pianos, drums, guitars, etc., or create your own custom samples with the built-in sampler.

Virtual analog from the people who brought you the award-winning Ion and Micron virtual analog synths as well as the actual-analog A6 Andromeda.

FM synthesis, emulating one of the favorite synthesizers of the 1980s.

Physical modeling using the most advanced technology available today for synthesizing wind and reed instruments with incredible clarity.

8-channel 24-bit hard disk recording built in But that's not all! The Fusion can also record eight channels of 24-bit audio directly to its built-in 40GB hard drive. The internal sequencer lets you edit your MIDI and multi-track recordings together with computer-like ease. The Fusion's DSP effects (reverb, compression, distortion, etc.) can be applied to MIDI tracks, audio tracks, or both. Finally, when you've finished your master mix, you can either transfer your mixdown to a computer from the Fusion via USB 2.0 or burn your project straight to CD with an optional CD-R recorder.

Expandable RAM plus CompactFlash memory and optional CD-R The Fusion has plenty of room for expansion, with internal RAM upgradeable from 64MB to 192 MB. Additional instruments will be available, as well as your own custom samples, programs, songs, and mixes, which can be stored on inexpensive Compact Flash memory. The optional Fusion Drive CD-R recorder will let you import samples and export your Fusion project files and mixes on CD-R media.
