Twin Dash Player (TDP) is a sample player for the DASHsnd format, and comes bundled at no extra charge with all products in the Dash Sound Library range. 

TDP has been designed to provide you with a quality playback engine for the Dash Sound Library range, even if you do not own a commercial audio plugin that supports DASHsnd. Featuring a very low CPU overhead, high sound quality, and an intuitive interface, TDP can play back any sound in the DASHsnd format. From the industry standard vintage sample library of EVE 2, to the HQS series in the Dash Sound Library, there is a huge selection of sounds available.

TDP FREE is a feature reduced version of TDP. It is freely downloadable from the Dash Signature web site, and comes with 12 handpicked DASHsnd files taken from the Dash Sound Libraries. TDP FREE enables you to try out the unique Mellotronier effect even if you don't yet  own a Dash Sound Library.

About the Mellotronier Feature

The Mellotronier adds grit and tape-like distortions and modulations to the sound, and can be assigned to each layer individually. When the Mellotronier is on, the activated layer bypasses the ADSR envelope. This is also part of the Mellotronier 'effect', and at the same time creates more sound design possibilities in TDP. For instance, using Mellotronier on one layer, you can have a tape saturated organ sound, but still use the ADSR on the second layer for a string ensemble with a slow attack.

Inspired by the sound of the Mellotron, this effect is not a normal audio effect which is usually placed at the output of the instrument; Mellotronier affects each note independently, and thus it is a true polyphonic effect. This also means that the Mellotronier effect can be very CPU intesive if used with any high polyphony setting.
