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.

Other features include a sophisticated Scala based Microtuner and an inbuilt preset system which uses an internal file browser to load presets/Scales. Finally, anyone who has used any HGS products knows that all products include comprehensive Randomizers on a Global and Local scale. Lots of work goes into making them musically useful.

This is a great companion Instrument for AirWaves which creates complex Atmospherics, but isn't a particularly tuneful instrument and so AirTones provides exactly that purpose. Here is a video demonstrating some of the presets in action:
