This Bundle Features Xpand!2, DB-33 and Vacuum Classic!

►Xpand!2

Four on the Floor

Xpand!2 is a multitimbral workstation offering four active sound slots, or parts, per patch. Each part is provided with its own MIDI channel, Note Range (Zone), Mix, Arpeggiation, Modulation, and Effects settings—an excellent method for creating individual parts.

Harnessing the four parts together to build one amazing Patch is where Xpand!2 reveals its true power. The Voice Mode for each part can be set to polyphonic or monophonic.

Polyphonic parts can have up to 64 voices; monophonic parts offer First, Last, Highest, or Lowest priority making it easy to designate a bass, lead, or solo instrument.

    • This is an Audio Plugin – It REQUIRES a HOST Software
    • THIS PRODUCT REQUIRES THE USE OF ILOK

MAIN FEATURES:

  • Four-channel multitimbral operation
  • Up to four stereo instrument parts per patch
  • Up to 64 voices per part; Mono or Poly voice modes
  • Smart Knobs provide intuitive sound editing
  • Easy Edit Knobs control the entire patch at once
  • Two digital effects processors; 50 editable effect types
  • Individual arpeggiation control for each part
  • Multiple sound generation engines:
  • Subtractive Synthesis
  • FM Synthesis
  • Tonewheels
  • Sample Playback
  • 2500+ total presets

Sounds Galore

Using everything from wavetables and FM synthesis to sample playback, the expert sound design team at Air Music Tech has carefully created thousands of ready-to-play Xpand!2 patches.

Creating your own is easy, too. Parts can be quickly browsed and are conveniently sorted into 29 categories, offering a simple path to find just what you’re looking for.

Smart Knobs and Easy Edits

Six smart knobs are provided for custom-tweaking your Xpand!2 sounds. Each knob changes function depending on the part selected, offering hands-on control of the most critical sound elements.

Select the Easy mode, and all six knobs now control all four of the common parts in a patch simultaneously for quickly performing those crucial edits.

And of course, all of your edits can be saved for instant recall.

Major Modulation

Express yourself with powerful performance features! Pitch Bend wheel and Aftertouch (pressure) modulation assignments can be made independently for each part.

Modulation rates can be tempo sync’d or free-wheeling. Numerous modulation destinations are provided, and the WAVE destination parameters are different from part to part, providing unique Xpand!2 sound-shaping capabilities.

Advanced Arpeggiation

Keep things moving with advanced arpeggiation. Simply set the Rate—including dotted and triplet values—and then select the Mode.

Using the Latch switch allows the arpeggiator to continue to play, even when your hands leave the keyboard. Each Xpand!2 part is provided with its own arpeggiator.

Many parts such as Action Pads and Loops will automatically activate the Arpeggiator, as it forms an integral part of the sound.

Dynamic Effects Duo

Xpand!2 includes two independent effect processors with fifty studio-grade effects, ranging from rich reverbs to the mind-bending Chaos Delay.

When selecting a new effect type, Xpand!2 will instantly change the edit knob functions to provide accurate control of every effect. The output of FX1 can be fed into the input of FX2 to create advanced “cascade-style” effects.

►DB-33

There are very few truly unique instrumental sounds in the world of music. Sounds so distinct, so compelling, so immediately identifiable and genuine that you just have to have it.

Nothing else will do. “Close” won’t do. “Almost” won’t cut it. “Approximately” will instantly brand you as a shallow imposter.

One of these really great, unmistakable instrumental sounds is the tonewheel organ, such as the classic Hammond B3. The Hammond B3 was used by many great rock, soul and jazz artists in the 1960’s to 1980’s.

Unforgettable musicians like Stevie Winwood, Jon Lord of Deep Purple, Jimmy Smith and Richard “Groove” Holmes.

Great music, great sound, created on an absolutely great instrument. That’s what you want. And that’s what DB-33 Tonewheel Organ gives you.

MAIN FEATURES:

  • AIR-proprietary vintage organ model
  • Custom designed, extra-realistic convolution rotary cabinet, also usable as a stand-alone effect
  • Tube overdrive emulation
  • Includes over 120 presets

DB-33 Tonewheel Organ is a virtual organ that recreates the sounds and controllability of classic tonewheel organs such as the Hammond B3, and the rotary-speaker cabinets they are often played through.

It includes 122 preset sounds plus an extra-realistic convolution rotary cabinet and tube overdrive emulation.

The rotary-speaker cabinet can also be used as an effect in its own right on an audio track.

►Vacuum Classic

Vacuum Classic is a monophonic vintage synthesizer featuring Vacuum Tube Synthesis with vacuum tube circuit modeling that perfectly captures the crunchy, warm sound of the analog era.

With analog oscillators, multiple filters and envelopes and built-in audio effects, Vacuum lets you dive deep into subtractive synthesis to recreate those sought-after analog sounds from the 70s and 80s.

Tweak the switches, knobs and dials to program anything from basses, leads, pads or unique sound effects.

Vacuum gives you TWO Vacuum Tube Oscillators. A nice touch with the four available wave shapes is that rather than just picking one, Vacuum lets you ‘morph’ between them. The output of the oscillators goes through a mixer, where you can apply drive/distortion and ring modulation, before being passed through high- and low pass filters.

Included are a wide range of pre-sets designed by highly-acclaimed sound designers Richard Devine and Mark Ovenden. Covering everything from Leads, Pads, Bass, Arpeggios, Percussive, and FX sounds this library provides instant inspiration for anyone to tweak to their contentment.

The filters provide a smooth sound, but each offers a saturation control if you prefer a more aggressive sound. A really nice touch can be found in the ‘age’ knobs, where you can set an amount of pitch drift to apply to the oscillators, or the quantity of dust that might make the synth sound old and noisy.

The Age function provides Drift and Dust controls adjusting the age from oscillator drift to crackling controls to slightly inaccurate keyboard triggering/pitch for that truly authentic hardware experience sought out by Synth lovers.

This is one of the most realistic emulations you’ll hear anywhere!

Vacuum also offers a number of modulation options, including two envelopes, which can be set to retrigger in the settings page. There’s also an on-board arpeggiator.

For a synth plugin, Vacuum sounds surprisingly unlike a synth plugin, exhibiting a real, dirty and analog quality.

The slick vintage synth-styled interface pays homage to some of the best vintage tube synths of the past, powerful and easy to use.


2. Velvet 2

 
Velvet 2
 

Five Legendary Electric Pianos

3. Addictive Keys: Studio Grand

 
Addictive Keys: Studio Grand
 

The Grand Master of Pianos

The response, dynamics and character of this instrument capture the very essence of a great grand piano. It will inspire your creativity.

About Studio Grand

The Studio Grand features a classic Steinway Model D concert grand piano. The first choice of many pianists, Steinways are famous for their character and unrivaled sound. The included ExploreMaps offer presets in a variety of styles ranging from open and natural to processed and strange. The variety of sounds makes Studio Grand perfect for both production and stage duties.

The Instrument and its Presets

Steinway Model D Grand Piano:

Our Studio Grand features a Steinway Model D Concert Grand piano. At 8′ 11 3/4″ (274cm) in length, this majestic instrument is the overwhelming choice of the world’s greatest pianists. More than ten Steinway Grand Pianos were auditioned before finding the one with the most desirable character: a crystal clear and open timbre with a perfectly balanced resonance. 

We approached Studio Grand with production in mind. We found that fitting a grand piano in a mix can be hard and often results in a compromise of the sound quality in order to make it fit with the other instruments and vocals. By offering the exact recording setup in Addictive Keys and the option of mixing and matching microphones, Studio Grand is sure to fit nicely into any production style.

Studio Grand was recorded in a large recording studio at the Swedish Broadcasting Corporation. The studio is famous for being extremely quiet and for having a controlled acoustic ambience; for such a large room the reverberation still sounds tight and airy which is a rare combination and the perfect condition for recording a grand piano. 

The recordings were done using rare vintage tube and ribbon microphones capturing the instrument at several different perspectives. From close up perspective with microphones next to the soundboard to far away perspective with natural room ambience. The end result is a warm and vibrant sound that goes from intimate to larger-than-life. The vintage microphones used were hand picked from the studios impressive collection.

We Recorded Using the Following:

  • Close (Stereo XY): Neumann M269 
  • Close (Stereo Wide): Coles 4038 
  • Close (Mono): RCA 6203 
  • Mid (Stereo Wide): Neumann M250 
  • Ambient (Stereo Wide): Neumann M269 
  • Body (Mono): Sela T25

4. Fire

 
Fire
 

Heavily used by The Doors on live shows, Rhodes Piano Bass is an icon of the rock and funk music. We did a recreation based on Spectral Modeling, offering the real sound and feel of the instrument in just 30MB. Carefully crafted.

Detailed recreation of every single mechanical noise and main timbre. No velocity switching since is not sample-based.

Available for Mac & Win, Standalone and Plug-in versions.

FIRE PIANO BASS SOUND DEMOS

Fire piano bass can be used as a normal bass or even to play melodies on the low end, thanks to the rich harmonic spectrum.

We also recreated mechanics sound, and releases. A big part of the Rhodes Piano Bass sound

THE RHODES BASS PIANO

Late in the 60’s Fender Rhodes released the bass version for his Rhodes Piano. Bass Piano was used on many records and live shows.

Equipped with the same tines and pickups system you can find on a regular Rhodes MK1, the Piano Bass offers a deeper and warmer, with reinforced low frequencies.

WHAT EXACTLY IS SPECTRAL MODELING?

Every sound in nature can be split into simple sinewaves. From thunder to a trumpet. Spectral modeling is the technique to analyze and recreate sinewaves spectra to recreate the exact timbre and behavior of an instrument.

According to Julius O. Smith (Standford) Spectral modeling provides a sound representation much closer to the perception of sound by the brain because your ear and brain are in fact spectral decoders.

PRODUCT DETAILS

  • Spectral modeled full range Rhodes Bass Piano
  • Included Drive and Reverb FXs
  • Low end harmonic knob.
  • HD Scalable interfase.
