Visitors to the CreamWare booth at Winter NAMM 2003 in Anaheim, Calif., can check out live performances by keyboardist Geoff Downes (founding member/composer/keyboardist of rock band ASIA), who will be playing on the company's new Noah hardware synthesizer.

Downes will perform every few hours, Thursday through Sunday, at booth #6900 in Hall A.

Noah was announced at the 2002 Musikmesse Show and is now almost ready for shipping. Based on software plug-in technology, Noah offers increased flexibility and new features, including extensive integration with audio computers via editing software and a USB interface (for audio and MIDI), as well as the ability to serve as an effects processor for external signal sources. The following instruments are included with Noah: Minimax (an accurate reproduction of the Moog Minimoog), B-2003 (model of a drawbar organ in the tradition of the Hammond B3), Vectron Player (vector synthesis), Lightwave (wavetable synthesizer with 128 waveforms, two integrated filters and a flexible modulation matrix) and six-string (produces string instrument sounds). As a special offer until June 30, 2003, Sequential Circuit's Pro-One is included for free.

In addition to this standard version, a Noah EX Version with double the power for the synthesis engine is available. This extension can also be added to the standard version. Noah EX can play up to four instruments simultaneously, while the standard version can play two.

Noah will be available in April 2003; editing software for the Mac is projected to be available in the middle of 2003. Projected list price for the standard version is $2,075; the EX Version is listed at $2,525.
