Air instruments

Post by cmreal04 » Fri Jun 09, 2017 11:37 pm

Hey guys,

I just got an offer for the Air instrument line (structure, loom, etc.) for $99, should I grab it? Any Air users here?

I pretty much use korg soft synths, for the most part, no NI really....

Loom is worth $99 on it's own. I got it for $50 on one of those flash sales. Can't attest to any other Air instruments except Transfuser, which is also pretty fun. Transfuser does REX ReCycle type stuff, with multiple loop points and loops etc. mapped to keys.

Loom is an amazing additive synth, completely underrated, I use it all the time. I'm broke right now, but at some point I'll pick up the bundle. My impression is I got the two most worthy Air instruments, though people have great things to say about Vacuum and Hybrid 3.

I own the Air bundle.

Loom and Vacuum Pro are pretty good for that price for sure. Xpand has some good sounds in there but is basically a rompler. The rest is nice, all in all $99 is certainly good value if you need plugins.

Ok cool, thanks for the quick reply. Seems like a pretty easy decision then.

BTW you can get it cheaper than $99. For instance here:

Buy Xpand 2 at $24.50, and use that to buy the complete expansion pack 'upgrade' for $60.
That also gets you all those expansion packs so there's that.
