An update on the state of the Spanish implementation beta, as well as SAROS & ASTERIAN's physical edition delay, ASTERIAN's song contest, end of year availability & our appearance at The NAMM Show in 2024!
SAROS & ASTERIAN Physical Distribution Update
We have faced some delays from our manufacturer for parts of SAROS' physical version. While we will ship all orders as soon as we can, please reach out if you ordered ASTERIAN and SAROS' physical editions together and would like them shipped out separately. To avoid any additional wait, we will begin shipping out ASTERIAN-only orders beginning on the 28th.
ASTERIAN Song Contest Judging
We will complete judging for ASTERIAN's song contest in January - due to the holiday season, our availability has been less than anticipated originally with the volume of participation. Please anticipate the results soon!
Spanish Implementation Improvements in Synthesizer V Studio 1.11.0b2
The implementation for Spanish has been improved! The new beta version of Synthesizer V Studio from Dreamtonics includes our latest changes to the words-to-phonemes system, which was the focus of the first wave of updates. Dreamtonics has also helped us to improve the clarity of pronunciation. More updates will continue to be worked on in the future, but we hope these changes have made working with Spanish within Synthesizer V Studio simpler. Thank you for all of your feedback! Changes to the phonemes themselves suggested by users & determined by our testing will be made in a future update in the new year, so please feel free to continue to submit Spanish language feedback, as we have been compiling it for our reference.
In this new beta version, multiple voice databases have been updated to support the beta implementation of Spanish, so feedback on the implementation can now be provided by users of vocals from multiple parties as we work on the improvements to the phoneme system. The new versions for our vocals are as follows:
You can download these using the permanent download link provided in your activation code email, or through Dreamtonics' site. You can view the full post for the 1.11.0b2 update here - please keep in mind that you must download the new beta version for these improvements. The next improvement will include additional phoneme changes to provide more user control.
Year Transition Teammate Availability
With the holiday season coming up at the end of the month for our team, our availability will be limited for customer support and product discussions over the following days:
January 1st & 2nd
Thank you for your understanding on this availability limitation for this time. In the new year, our teammates will be gradually transitioning to a full-time schedule, so please expect increased availability from February onwards.
We have been rapidly outgrowing our current website service provider. In the new year before NAMM, we will be transitioning our site to a new platform with a new design to go along with the change. This may require some downtime for our store, so please expect a notice about the transition when it is closer to completion.

Eclipsed Sounds will be attending the 2024 NAMM Show in Anaheim, CA! Be sure to visit us at booth 11608 to talk about Synthesizer V Studio or pick up freebies & discount codes!

Representatives from Dreamtonics will also be joining us at our booth - please expect more information about our presence at the Show next month from both our site & social media accounts!
