Plugin Boutique has announced a sale on Akai VIP 3.1, the award-winning music software that enables you to control your entire VST instrument and FX library directly from any keyboard.

The VIP software allows you to switch patches from all your VSTs in one place, instantly access pre-mapped plugin parameters for hands-on knob tweaking, customize preset loading from multiple VST’s using set-lists, and much more.

VIP extends the capabilities beyond what any DAW offers by empowering you to quickly create and play “multis.” A multi allows you to combine up to 8 patches from 1 or more plugins, with the ability to layer, mix and pan these patches all at once.

VIP software users can also create set-lists that provide on-demand access to your customised instruments for stage performance and studio work. By simply pressing a single button on any Keyboard, you can adapt to song changes as the live performance progresses-without ever reaching for your computer. That’s what you want!

VIP also brings you an intelligent patch browser that works across all your VST instruments to let you quickly find sounds based on instrument type, timbre, style or articulation, or simply explore patches you never knew you had!

You’ll also love VIP’s facilities for browsing, key zone splitting, layering of up to 8 instruments per VIP instance, expansive custom mapping capabilities, and support for any VSTi plugin. You can run as many instances of the Virtual Instrument Player as your computer allows.

VIP is ideal for live performance and a Standalone App with a built in Digital Mixer. It also runs as a VSTi, AU, or AAX plugin, allowing you access to VSTi’s in virtually any DAW, such as Pro Tools, Logic Pro X and Ableton Live.

Both VIP Standard and VIP Plus are on sale until April 1st, 2019, priced at $39.99 USD and $69.99 USD, respectively.

The Plus edition includes Creative FX Collection Plus, Velvet 2, Transfuser 2, Hybrid 3 + Expansions, Vacuum Pro, Xpand!2 and the Loom synthesizer.
