ThingTone Software Offers Thing-1 Upgrade

Rancho Cordova, CA -- March 26, 2010 -- ThingTone Software today announced the immediate availability of a new version of its Thing-1 MIDI Music Performance System supporting more woodwind instruments.

Thing-1 Professional Edition 1.7 offers these improvements over version 1.0:

--New Instruments - now works with saxophone, clarinet, and flute
--Improved User Interface - new look, space-saver view, MIDI and audio diagnostics
--Built-in Apple Remote Support - player can have wireless control of effects
--Better Dynamics Control - expanded dynamic range and aftertouch control
--Better Attack/Release Tracking - fewer unwanted notes, cleaner articulation
--Better Pitch Detection - more accurate note detection with imperfect tuning

Released in a limited trial edition in May 2009, and made available for licensing in January 2010, the Thing-1 Professional Edition software is available for purchase through the ThingTone Software website and to dealers and distributors by contacting ThingTone Software directly.

Thing-1 uses software to interpret the musical sound of woodwind instruments in real time. Thing-1 can instantly translate articulation, pitch, and expression into MIDI information to control a synthesizer, turning the sound of a woodwind instrument into virtually any sampled or synthesized sound imaginable.
