Free Plugin Simulates Distance & Depth In Your Mix

Sound Particles has introduced a free plugin, Air | Music Edition, that’s designed to simulate the distance and depth of musical elements quickly and realistically in any mix.

The plugin is designed to remove the sterile feel of a typical studio setting, where vocals & instruments often get close mic-ed, by simulating air absorption, making your music sound natural, organic and clear, and by simulating the acoustic effect of distance between the listener and the real-life music performance.

Nuno Fonseca, founder and CEO of Sound Particles says: β€œWe wanted to thank our fans for their support with the free version of Air for the music production industry. With a new design and just one button, now it’s easier to achieve natural performance results in the studio.”


  • New interface – with this new version of the plugin, get an “updated and spectacular” new design and UI.
  • Distance Attenuation – control the amount of additional attenuation you would get with different distances by controlling the variation of the audio gain.
  • Natural results – Air is much more accurate than a simple low-pass filter, using scientifically measured frequency response values of air dampening.
  • Frequency response – With Air | Music Edition, you can see the actual frequency response that is being applied to the music.

Pricing and Availability

Air | Music Edition is available now as a free download.

  1. It’s outrageous that they would give something like this away for free in today’s over hyped music marketplace. In 1970s dollars this would have cost at least $20,000. In today’s dollars that would be over $140,000. I won’t get one unless they raise their prices to about $3,000 (what some here would consider a fair price in today’s market)

    1. Did you know you can give any amount of money to a charity of your choice whenever you feel something you buy is too cheap? It helps others and feels way better than arguing with strangers on the internet.

    2. You people do realize that the post was a parody of the typical kinds of “what synths are worth” comments people routinely make here.
