Introducing the Dino Park – The World’s first Top-End Modelling Synthesizer as affordable DIY Kit
Play with the Dinosaurs
For makers. For musicians. For everyone seeking the big sound! When you enter Dino Park, you will meet three staggering creatures from the past! Once before, these legends shook the earth. CreamWare’s absolutely faithful emulations set the standard for analog modelling in late 90s and their quality is unsurpassed today. Now they are back – in a new exciting form!
Every Dino Park comes with the legendary Minimax, Pro12 and Prodyssey pre-installed!
Minimax is a stunning emulation and recreation of one of the most sought after and popular synths of all time. There are very few analog synthesizers that have been digitally modeled with such precision. Enjoy the punchy oscillators, ultra-fast envelopes and pristine filters that add to the depth of the rich, harmonically infused lows and many more features that made the original instrument a cult classic.
With the Prodyssey, a timeless piece of synthesizer history comes back to life. Thanks to its extensive modulation possibilities, a sample & hold section and the special filters, this perfect emulation of the original provides you with a cornucopia of high-end and very unique sounds. Enjoy the unique punchiness tumbling sequences, blister leads and smooth pads of this classic.
The Pro-12 brings back every iota of the gorgeousness in the original classic, which took the world by storm in the late 70ies. The first polyphonic synthesizer with full digital and preset-recall. Armed with the modelling and SSM filtering and modular generator and oscillator routing of the first series, the Pro-12 brings back the best of its sound. Enjoy the bellowing sweeps and room shaking rumbles with the convenience reliable and stable tuning.
The Secret behind the Sound
While most versatile synthesizers use sample-playback as the basis of their synthesis, Dino Park emulates the very DNA of the original analog circuitry. Because it features a super high performance dedicated DSP processor to do that math, Dino Park can emulate a variety of synthesizers and synthesis forms in the most minute detail. And because Dino Park’s DSP processing knows no latency, Dino Park plays and feels just like the real thing with a level of responsiveness and musicality of a hardware synth. No software-only plugin plays and feels like Dino Park!
The Joy of Hardware
The greatest pleasures are simple pleasures. A hardware synth like Dino Park is instant-on and instantly gratifying. Totally dependable and extremely easy to use, it turns any USB MIDI Keyboard into a sound monster. Combined with the power and flexibility of software, Dino Park offers the best of both worlds!
Build Options and MakeKits
The Dino Park Board
At the core of every Dino Park system is the Dino Park Board. This board offers all essential external connectivity and a lot of expansion options on the inside!
The Dino Display is a module that allows for quick selection Plugins and access to Presets via a text display with two encoders that toggle function. Here you can also adjust the MIDI channel and the master output volume.
The Dino Park Breakout Expansion makes accessable two channels of analog audio input, SPDIF in and out as well as MIDI In, Thru and Out.
Dino Dials is an 8 Encoder Tile that comes with special firmware for added functionality: it allows you to tweak the “top eight” parameters of each synthesizer! Using the switch function of each encoder, it also features a store and recall capability. This lets you save and recall your favorite eight Plugin/Preset combinations. Ideal for quick recall during performance!
The Dino Park MakeKit
This MakeKit puts the DinoPark board and the Dino Display into a slim compact housing. The top panel is segmented allowing for the mounting of the Dino Dials at any later point in time!
The Dino Park MakeKit EX
With more height and length, the Dino Park MakeKit EX adds the Dino Park Breakout Expansion and offers the space to mount a second Dino Park board inside the unit!
Dino Park with your Sequencer and/or GLUE
For many plugins, certainly all the Legends, we provide VSTI remote control user interfaces for Mac and PC. This enables you to tweak and save sounds right within your production software. The moment you connect Dino Park to GLUE – you do that via the Dino Parks USB MIDI Device port – you can control Dino Park in all its details with great comfort across the network!
Look forward to! More Plugins…
To be future proof, we made sure DinoPark could store up to 32 plugins in its on-board memory. As many synthesizers of the “Dino Park” are based on the CreamWare legacy you can expect exceptional quality in the plugins we will be releasing in the near future. The following plugins, sold separately are scheduled for released Summer 2019 :
And many more synthesizers to come…
