AIR Music Technology has announced the release of its Vacuum Pro polyphonic analog tube synthesizer and Loom modular additive synthesizer instruments for Windows and Mac.
Vacuum Pro goes beyond providing superior analog sound to recreate the vintage synthesizer experience.
Vacuum Pro is a polyphonic analog tube synthesizer that travels light-years beyond the original monophonic Vacuum, first developed by the AIR team as part of the Pro Tools® Creative Collection from Avid®. Loom is an entirely new modular additive synthesizer. AIR Music Technology is the groundbreaking developer of acclaimed industry-standard virtual instruments and audio processing tools.
Loom uses an efficient and effective modular design to create complex sounds quickly and easily.
Both Vacuum Pro and Loom are highly intuitive in design and place few technical demands on the user, delivering a more inspiring and creative experience. Each provides an array of sound-sculpting tools ranging from rapid, highly efficient sound creation to zeroing in on most intricate of sound design tasks. The unique and scalable workflow allows the creative potential of Vacuum Pro and Loom to continue to meet the musician’s needs as they evolve. 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 titles are available to purchase now, priced at $199.99 USD each.
