Air Music launches 7 new instrument plugins, including an ARP Odyssey emulation and a hybrid synth


Air Music is the source of many of the effects and instruments found in Professional tools and Akai Professional MPC products, and now it has launched seven new connect instruments for all.

The new range covers both vintage and cutting-edge plugins, with each title available for PC and Mac in VST/AU/AAX formats.

The line-up starts at the bottom – bass line (opens in a new tab) ($89) is a vintage-style monophonic synth featuring Air’s vacuum tube circuit modeling technology. Electric (opens in a new tab) ($89), meanwhile, emulates Rhodes, Wurlitzer, and FM pianos.

Then, we have Infatuation (opens in a new tab) ($149), a hybrid synth that includes wavetable, FM, virtual analog, and multisample engines, while Mellotron (opens in a new tab) ($119) is a tribute to the classic tape loop instrument.

Then, we have Odyssey (opens in a new tab) ($149); created by WayOutWare, which previously developed timeWARP2600, an ARP 2600 emulation, it is – unsurprisingly – an ARP Odyssey plugin.

Solina (opens in a new tab) ($119) is another emulation – a polyphonic string synth that covers the sounds of double bass, cello, viola, violin, trumpet, and horn. These can be combined to create complete sets.

Finally, there is TubeSynth (opens in a new tab) ($89), a subtractive synth that uses virtual analog technology to produce some of the most famous sounds of the 70s and 80s.

All new instruments are available now from multiple retailers. Introductory discounts apply.
