Typhoon 2000 is the first official release of Typhoon since version 1.0. It will also be the last and final version to be released. As further development on this product has ceased, Typhoon 2000 is released as freeware.

Typhoon is a replacement operating system for the Yamaha TX16W sampling synthesizer written by Magnus Lidström / NuEdge Development. The first version was released back in 1994 and it quickly became the obvious choice of operating system for the TX16W community. For years they had struggled with a slow and clumsy sampler. With the introduction of Typhoon OS these days were blown away for good. Not only did Typhoon improve the stability and speed of the TX16W; it also provided features that were comparable to or even surpassed those found on the top samplers at that time.

The main benefits of using Typhoon compared to the original Yamaha operating system are:

*Typhoon is easy. The user interface is well structured and extremely consistent which makes learning and using Typhoon a breeze.

*Typhoon is fast. For instance, the startup time is merely 20 seconds. All menus are loaded into system memory so access to different functions is always instant.

*Typhoon is small. Compared to the Yamaha OS, Typhoon requires almost 500kb less in waveform memory. This is in effect one third of the 1.5Mb that the TX16W is equipped with as standard.

*Audio file compression to save time and space (30 to 60% savings).

*Automatic loop finder, pitch tracker and wave trimmer.

*Destructive editing (death of the edit buffers).

*Dynamic voice allocation (with priority possibilities).

*Eight free modulators per channel with 14 sources and 12 destinations.

*Incremental saving allows you to save only modified data.

*Intelligent file system (handles multiple versions of a file, keeps track of where files are stored etc...).

*Monophonic portamento mode and several other new playing modes.

*New 25 kHz sampling rate.

*New voice architecture with groupable parameters and much more.

*Object oriented management of items (create, rename, copy, swap and delete).

*Pre-triggered sampling threshold (prevents loss of transients).

*Reads and writes AIFF format files (accepted by most sample editors).

*Resample utility for any sampling rate between 3 and 50 kHz.

*Stereo mode with pan parameter (requires two channels).

*Stereo waves treated as a single wave.

*Two independent LFOs and two four-stage envelopes per channel.

*Up to 250 performances, 250 voices and 250 waves in memory.

*Up to four times faster loading and saving.
