AIR Music Technology has expanded their virtual instrument offerings with Vacuum Pro Polyphonic Analog Tube Synthesizer and Loom Modular Additive Synthesizer:
- Vacuum Pro is a polyphonic ‘analog tube’ synthesizer.
- Loom is a new modular additive synthesizer.
Here are the details.
Vacuum Pro Polyphonic Analog Tube Synthesizer
The ‘vacuum’ part of the name Vacuum Pro relates to the six tube circuits that lend a particularly ‘analog’ flavor to each of the main synthesis modules—oscillators, filters, mixer, etc. Vacuum Pro is designed to provide a modern, idealized vision of the versatility and potential of analog synthesis, rather than attempting to isolate and recreate just one particular moment from history.
“Vacuum Pro is the dirtiest, hottest, and most revolutionary soft synth we’ve ever created.” says Mario Reinsch, Senior Engineer at AIR. “We designed Vacuum Pro to sound like the analog synth we always wanted; it isn’t a copy or reproduction of a known, classic analog synth; you’re getting something that is truly unique and wonderful.”
Here’s a video intro to Vacuum Pro:
Loom Modular Additive Synthesizer
Loom is designed to provide a vast array of unique sounds, while providing total control over every aspect of the instrument. Sound creation begins with 30 sound modules, each with a distinct function—moving filter, octaver, repeater, second tone, etc.
These modules can be freely combined in up to 10 cells. Spectral modulation, extensive envelope shaping, and multiple LFOs deliver deep control.
Here’s an overview of Loom:
Vacuum Pro and Loom will be available first in the VST and AU 64-bit formats, plus the RTAS 32-bit format. An AAX update is coming soon. Both are priced at US $199.99. See the Air site for details.
