Loom II

Loom II is a major upgrade to the original, pushing the boundaries of additive synthesis. Loom II is ideal for all skill levels. Whether you're starting out and just experimenting in this space or you're a bona fide expert, the instrument grows with you.

Upgrade for a limited time upgrade from Loom 1 for just $49.99 contact softwaresales@airmusictech.com to get your coupon.

Loom II is an award-winning modular additive synthesizer with a shape-shifting Morph Pad that makes it easy to create rich, swirling and captivating sounds. The original Loom was considered a triumph of its time when it was launched. Now, Loom II builds on this with unique and powerful new features as requested by our loyal users.

Loom II takes a unique modular approach to additive synthesis, a synthesis technique that involves combining simple waveforms together to create complex sounds, by enabling anyone to select from and combine 34 editable modules. Create anything from wobbles, organs, ethereal pads, ambient soundscapes and so much more. The programmable Morph Pad brings your Loom II patches to life by morphing between user-defined variations of your patch, adding motion and momentum that continuously evolve.

New for LOOM II:

  • Loom II has been expanded to 8 voices by popular request.
  • Spectral Noise section allowing a secondary oscillator to replace or enrich the additive spectrum (created with the Sine Oscillator) with a noise spectrum. This is truly revolutionary in the additive world. Your creativity is the only limit to what is possible.
  • 4 new modules (See module section).
  • 2 additional Subharmonic Optional Partials bellow the normal spectrum.
  • Enhanced Morph Pad options.
  • 500 all-new patches covering a wide range of sounds designed by acclaimed sound designers Richard Devine and Mark Ovenden.
  • All original 350 patches re-mastered taking advantage of the new features.
  • New Wave Parameter options.
  • 20+ other performance enhancements.

Mix & Match Modules

Loom II delivers up to 512 harmonic partials per patch and uses an intuitive modular design to create complex sounds quickly and easily. Each of the 34 editable modules performs a specific sonic task—Octaver, Second Tone, Moving Filter, Noise, Linear Lowpass, Modulator, etc. The Loom II framework provides a series of cells, where up to 10 of these modules can interact combine to generate an additive synthesis patch. Each module includes task-specific parameters for detailed, individual control of the patch. For real-time visual feedback of your sound, each module includes a spectrum window, offering a visual indication of how that module is affecting the individual harmonics of the sound.

In Loom II we have added four new powerful modules:

  1. 5-Sines – An easy-to-use module enabling you to produce a range of organ or sine style sounds.
  2. Discrete Adder – Similar to Loom 1's popular adder, but adding a discrete spectrum ideal for creating percussion-based synth instruments.
  3. Hype – adding Hi and Low Hype with dedicated easy-to-use controls for instant results.
  4. Double Wave – for our more advanced users: Use dual waves to create complex synth patterns. We have also added a dedicated control for this in the Morph pad.

Make Your Music Move

Loom II's Morph Pad is a powerful tool that adds dynamics and movement to your patches. Using a condensed set of control knobs, Loom II enables you to quickly create up to four variations of your sound, and assign each one to different quadrant of the Morph Pad. Point, click, and drag anywhere on the Morph Pad to create a morph path. As the sound moves along this patch, you will hear it morph in real time between your four variations. This morphing can be free-form, or set to sync up to a particular musical unit—1 bar, 4 bars, etc. Plus, each segment of the morph path can be synced individually. In Loom II, we have expanded our highly-acclaimed morph pad by allowing Points/Paths to be stored and restored separately. We have also added a new X-Axis mode enabling it to perform like an envelope, which is ideal for rhythmical morph patterns. For this new mode Snap/Grid is also available. Additionally, for expanded creativity you can now use parameters not linked to the Morph.

Stunning Sound Design

Loom II comes packed with sounds. Acclaimed sound designers Richard Devine and Mark Ovenden have created 850+ professional, tweakable patches that include wobbles, pads, bass, soundscapes, and more. 500 all-new presets for LOOM II and 350 re-mastered presets from LOOM I. You can tweak, analyze, and customize their sounds to make them your own, or dig deep and begin creating your own additive sounds from scratch. For sonic inspiration, Loom II's Smart Sound Randomizer instantly generates new parameters—or a new mix of modules—to jump-start your sound design sessions. All parameters can be mapped for MIDI control. Additional preset packs are available free of charge and for purchase from 3rd-party partners to provide additional creativity.

More than Modules

Each Loom II patch begins with editable Spectral Distortion and Spectral Modulation controls that influence the overall sound. Three LFOs provide tempo syncable modulation sources that any module can access. Four velocity-sensitive Envelope Generators add an extra layer of control that can change and evolve over time. Octave control, global pitch, glide time, and other patch-specific controls offer additional tools for your custom sound-shaping experience.

Expressive Effects

On-board effects add extra expression to your customized additive sound creations. Using the drive or distortion on an additive sound can produce an aggressive edge or introduce rich harmonic changes. Modulation effects include a chorus and a phaser. Each adds remarkable depth and motion to your sound. Loom II also includes a reverb effect to help your sound sit in the mix, or to create an expansive audio environment.

I give Loom 2 five stars because I don't want this synth to be dismissed without serious consideration. I'm not a sound engineer or soft synth developer but I have enough experience in fidgeting with VST synths (as well as engaging in pretty exhaustive pre-purchase research) to give a worthwhile recommendation of the synths I buy. I haven't the knowledge to get deeply technical but I can say this:

If you want a synth that rewards experimentation then get Loom 2. The rewards for messing about with this strange & beautiful little beast are too significant to be ignored... and you don't have to experiment for long to get useful and interesting sounds. The breadth of sonic possibilities is surprising and will be worthy of your respect. If you lament the discontinuation of NI's absynth I highly encourage giving Loom 2 a try. Getting results can be more immediate if you wish, but no less satisfying.

It should be noted though, that Loom 2 is not for someone who just wants a saw wave, some unison detune and a low pass filter. You should want to push the envelope some if you wish to be happy with it. When you "sit down" with Loom 2 you should be ready to give it a reasonable amount of your undivided attention and time. Explore its diverse sonic landscape. I believe Loom 2 capable of rewarding both shorter and longer sound shaping excursions, depending on the richness and/or complexity you are looking for. I recommend Loom 2 as a synth that will be useful and inspiring for a long time.

Ok, here is the deal. This synth is blowing my mind! Finally I found a synth that reproduces the sounds in my head, (I might have a very strange head). Anyway Loom II is amazingly deep, while getting up and running is simple. They have given us a whole lot of presets, the better to play with, while allowing us to learn all the possibilities. This is not the easiest synth to make a patch form scratch, yet the presets make being creative a breeze. If you like moving pads, or morphing rhythms, this is for you.

I spent 3 hours, just walking through the presets, observing, and learning what makes this synth tick. I could spend another 8 hours doing the same. Did I say this is deep? Please put this in your arsenal of sound creation. You will be happy. From big moving pads, to small complex harmonic hits, this has it all. Like overtones? This is the baby. Like to tweek exactly how a sound moves. This synth makes it easy. This has replaced all my other soft synths as my goto starting point.
