Live & Studio Performance Drum Software
Building upon AIR Music Technology’s heritage of creating Strike — considered "The reference Drum Instrument" for Avid Protools — AIR has teamed up with music legends Akai Professional and Alesis Drums to carry on this legacy of excellence.

In the style of the popular 500 series synth modules comes an all new software drum synthesizer that delivers full control of all electronic drum sounds in an easy-to-use, comprehensive interface. Drum Synth 500 from AIR Music Technology has everything needed to create an endless variety of custom electronic drum sounds for all styles of music.

Drum Synth 500’s exclusive library has been produced by the sound design veterans behind the highly-acclaimed AIR Music Tech Strike, AIR Structure, Sonivox Big Bang, Akai Professional’s MPC and Alesis e-Drums.
The goal was to provide an incredible mixture of vintage and all-new effects that pay homage to classic sounds while also pushing into new territory.

Using a MIDI keyboard, pad controller, electronic drumkit, or the user’s favorite Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) software, Drum Synth 500 brings modern electronic drum sounds into musical productions or live playing.

To get you started, Drum Synth 500 gives you over 500 drum sounds, 500 drum samples, 50 drum kits and 500 MIDI drum loops which can be loaded into any DAW and used to kick-start your song or production.
