New AIR instrument plugins


Recommended Posts

They are leveraging the work they've done for the Force series so that more folks can use them:

Hype (multi-engine synth), Electric (EPs), Solina, Odyssey, Mellotron, TubeSynth (VA), Bassline

 

A number of these have demos, which I hope to check out soon. It doesn't look like they use iLok (?), which could be a plus if they allow installations on more than one machine.

 

I'm a fan of a few of their legacy products, especially Hybrid and Velvet.

 

I was thinking Hype would be more programmable, like a successor to Hybrid, but appears to offer more high-level parameter tweaking than programming. This is not necessarily a bad thing, since I expect more folks tweak presets than program patches.

 

They are running up against Arturia and GeForce here, but there's always room for alternatives.

A fan here too, John. I have too many general purpose synths, but the slightly overdriven ones are still interesting because each one brings a different character. For me, Vacuum Pro is still a great synth, even though the guys at Wizzoo created it a lifetime ago. Blend it with some Knifonium and maybe some Spitfire Aperture for a more modern overdrive, and Vacuum Pro will give you something interesting in that mix.

 

So maybe Tubesynth is something for me to look at? Thanks for the heads up. 👍 🙏

Having used them with the Akai MPC, the AIR instruments are very decent. 😎

I tried all of these except Bassline.

 

Picked up Tubesynth. This goes in the bucket of simple, easy-to-use synths.

 

The rest were duplicative of what I had in Arturia or didn't really grab me. I thought Electric would be Velvet 3, but it was sort of its own thing, sort of Lounge Lizard like but with fewer modeling options.

Yep, that. EP-like, but not trying for a modeled sound.

 

BTW the software uses online activation via an inMusic account. No iLok. Still not sure how many installs you're entitled to.
