AIR Intros Loom Modular Additive Synthesizer

loom-synthesizer

At the 2013 NAMM ShowAIR Music Technology introduced Loom Modular Additive Synthesizer. Using a modular approach, Loom is designed to make additive synthesis both powerful and easy to control.

Loom provides 30 sound modules, each with a distinct function—moving filter, octaver, repeater, second tone, etc. Up to 10 of these modules can be connected in a string. Spectral modulation, extensive envelope control, and multiple LFOs add deep control.

In addition to ‘knobs’ offering sound, dynamic, modulation, and effect control, the Smart Morph Page opens up the extensive morphing capabilities of the Loom additive sound engine and effects. Four assignable quadrants on an X-Y display provide flexible morphing control.

Custom morphing paths can be plotted using points and segments. These morphing paths can then be automated, placed under MIDI control, and even synced to the tempo of the host program, creating a morphing pattern that takes 8 or 16 bars to complete.

Loom Modular Additive Synthesizer will be compatible with 32- or 64- bit Mac or Windows systems, and support AAX, VST, AU, and RTAS formats. Pricing is TBA.
