M-Audio has announced that the new 2014 Keystation and Oxygen Series controllers will now include Air Music Tech Xpand!2 free of charge. Existing owners of the 2014 models may download this instrument in their account upon registration at the M-Audio website.
Xpand!2 is a multitimbral workstation offering four active sound slots, or parts, per patch. Each part is provided with its own MIDI channel, Note Range (Zone), Mix, Arpeggiation, Modulation, and Effects settings. Harnessing the four parts together to build one Patch is where Xpand!2 reveals its true power. The Voice Mode for each part can be set to polyphonic or monophonic. Polyphonic parts can have up to 64 voices; monophonic parts offer First, Last, Highest, or Lowest priority making it easy to designate a bass, lead, or solo instrument.
