Pluginboutique is selling the excellent Air Music Xpand!2 multitimbral workstation instrument ($99 regular price) for $1 only! This is a Pluginboutique-exclusive, limited time offer.
It’s been a while since we’ve seen a no-brainer deal even remotely as tempting as this one. A top of the line workstation instrument in VST/AU plugin formats for just $1, and 99% off regular price? Note that this is the price you’ll pay for the full version of the instrument, containing over 2,500 patches across 29 categories and featuring 4-channel multitimbral operation, sample playback, subtractive synthesis and FM synthesis. Xpand!2 contains enough professional quality drums, synths, basses, pianos, guitars, strings and tons of other cool sounds to keep you covered for years to come!
Air Music Xpand!2 comes with four sound slots per patch. This means that you can layer up to four different sounds in a single patch, each with its own MIDI channel, key-range, modulation, effects, etc. Obviously, building huge multi-layered patches with Xpand!2 is not hard to do, especially considering the amount of bundled instrument presets and the plugin’s immense modulation and routing capabilities. You also get an impressive set of 50 built-in effects that can be mixed and matched in two individual FX chains.
Even the most complex patches can be streamlined using Xpand!2’s six smart knobs that change their target depending on the selected part. This is great for tweaking various sound parameters while playing a patch, especially if you’re planning to use Xpand!2 in a live performance. Of course, you can also automate every parameter using your DAW’s default automation functionality.
UPDATE #1: After purchasing the instrument, I received a message that Xpand!2 serial numbers are currently out of stock and that I should receive my s/n withing 24 hours. You can still purchase Xpand!2 at the insane $1 price, though, but you’ll need to wait in order to actually activate your license. Definitely worth the wait, in my opinion.
UPDATE #2: The s/n has arrived, everything working fine. It’s also worth noting that you’ll need an iLok user account (the USB dongle is not required) in order to activate Xpand!2 on your machine.
Xpand!2 can be purchased for $1 at Pluginboutique for a limited time only.
