I didn't know AIR MusicTech before even though they have four more synths.

They got bought, as Wizoo, by Digidesign some years back so did stuff only for ProTools. They got spun out last year. Vacuum has been available on PT for quite a while. This launch adds support for other DAWs. And is polyphonic rather than monophonic.

Aha, thanks for clarifying things. I wasn't aware of the ProTools connection.
They present both synths as completely new.

Vacuum Pro is a polyphonic analog tube synthesizer that travels light-years beyond the original monophonic Vacuum, first developed by the AIR team as part of the Pro Tools Creative Collection from Avid


So this is a bit like Steinberg Absolute VST collection, that synths previously available only in DAWs now can be bought as a separate product it seems.

Well, it's now Vacuum Pro. Loom is completely new. Looks as though it behaves a bit like RP Blade, but hard to tell without using it.

Vacuum was free with PT8, so I guess this gives an opportunity to charge for the new version.

I just found the relevant news item here on KVR. I missed it completely and didn't find anything about these synths in the forums.

I didn't see a thread about it before now. I did wonder as Vacuum was one of those synths that some people wanted outside PT. The other one I wouldn't mind seeing make the jump is Transfuser, but that's in the expansion pack so Avid may have a lock on that.

No prob, good to have a thread discussing new synths to be released.

The only A.I.R VI that did it for me was XPand which is similar to Nexus. The rest were decidedly "Meh" once you stepped outside of RTAS-land - didn't BigTone do the original presets for Vacuum, maybe someone can dig up his comments on it...

Loom looks interesting, didn't they do a Hypersonic based instrument or was that ProTools only?

I remember digging Vacuum while at a friends house and thinking, "Why no native VST?" Well here it is... but uh... where is it? I see press releases and a Soundcloud page, but no company page.

More digging and I found it... no mention of Vacuum or Loomer yet though, at least on the products page.
