After the official release of AirWaves, Homegrown Sounds continued his sound design work and announced today AirTones, a new sample library for Kontakt 5.6. Compared to AirWaves, AirTunes goes more in the direction of a normal Synthesizer.
Whilst working on AirWaves which is more atmospheric than musical, it occurred that a traditionally musical synthesizer using the sine wave de-modulator signals would be interesting, and so AirTones was born.
The sounds use various tones and signals found on the radio to create the oscillators. They are lofi and come with whatever sound and noise is present to add a unique character to the tones. They were tried in the Cassetto engine and it was found to be perfect for exploring the tones. The great thing about doing this is that the presets are cross compatible and so all of the Cassetto presets are included as well as 100 specially created for AirTones. If you own Cassetto you can also copy the AirWaves Presets to your Cassetto folder to use them there. Obviously they will sound radically different due to the different sound sources, but can be very interesting!
It come with 100 samples which can be selected by either of the synthesizers two oscillators. The Synth is a dual synthesizer with 2 Filters, 3 LFOs, 3 Envelopes as well as a comprehensive FX Section. Also included is an Advanced Arpeggiator/Sequencer with 12 sequencers for various parameters, as well as many modes including standard Arps, chords and modulation only modes. There is also a Scale Remapper which can transform the pitch sequencer in real-time to any of the large types of Scales included.
AirTones is available now for the Early Bird price of just $19.99 USD until the official release next week. The price will go up than to $24.99 USD.
