AIR Music Technology has released the Boom drum machine as an VST/AU plugin for Windows and Mac.
Originally created as part of the Creative Collection, Boom is now available on its own by popular demand.
Boom features a slick modern interface that pays homage to the most popular vintage drum machines of the past. Boom has been used on many famous projects since its launch, ranging from hit albums, feature films and radio projects. It’s one of the most loved Pro Tools Plugins.
Boom includes a diverse collection of 10 different classic electronic drum kits, offering variations on the classic 808 and 909 kits, more aggressive Dance and Urban-style kits and a powerful retro-style kit modelled on the concept of a ‘CR78 merged with a 606’. Each one has been created with great attention to detail and provides serious sonic impact.
Each kit contains 10 different drums, and you can adjust the panning, volume, tuning and decay of each drum within a kit. Each drum channel also contains a special tuning screw that can be turned to make a sonic adjustment, specific to a particular drum. This tweaking ability provides for nearly limitless possibilities with a user-friendly interface.
The Vacuum Classic monophonic vintage synthesizer is now also available in VST/AU formats.
The synth features Vacuum Tube Synthesis with vacuum tube circuit modelling that perfectly captures the crunchy, warm sound of the analogue 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 analogue 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 presets 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.
Boom and Vacuum Classic are on sale at Plugin Boutique at 20% off until January 2nd, 2017. A crossgrade is available from Pro Tools 8+, AIEP, MPC Software or VIP at 50% off during the sale.
