The AIR Bassline emulates the sound of classic mono synths with a contemporary twist.
The Bassline is a monophonic vintage synthesizer featuring Vacuum Tube Synthesis with an evolved version of AIR's vacuum tube circuit modelling technology made first famous by AIR VACUUM. VACUUM if you are not familiar, is considered by many the reference Synth for Avids Protools.
Our evolved engine perfectly captures the crunchy, warm sound of the analogue era, with next-generation features, without compromising that superb warm sound.
Featuring a Flexible oscillator with continuously variable waveshape including octave saw, saw, square, and sine waveforms: Discover Sub and fifth oscillators for thicker layered timbres. With multiple filters and envelopes and built-in audio effects, Bassline lets you dive deep into subtractive synthesis to recreate those sought-after analogue sounds from the 70s and 80s.
Award-Winning Effects by Air Technology:
Bassline has world-class audio effects processing built-in to enhance your sounds as you create quickly. Choose from Chorus, Delay, Reverb, Compressor and the new Hype EQ., each with a dedicated section to dial-in any adjustments. You will also discover two built-in distortion algorithms to allow you to tweak your sound.
Hype EQ provides a quick way of enhancing the low- or high- end of any patch. Beef up wobbles, basses, and kick-drum sounds with deep sub- bass by adjusting the Low Hype parameter, or turn up Hype High to polish off the high end with shimmer and sparkle; the latter sounds great on pads, strings, brass, and percussive sounds.
The AIR Creative FX collection has been included as part of Pro Tools® since Version 8 and is considered the reference FX suite by some of the world's most respected audio professionals. AIR FX has been featured in many of the last decade's top film, game and music projects. Each plugin has been expertly designed with ease of use in mind and will ensure professional results each time.
Packed With Presets:
The Bassline comes packaged with a comprehensive factory library of over 150 cutting-edge presets, including sumptuous pads, hard-hitting plucks, thunderous basses and screaming lead sounds.
Dive deep into subtractive synthesis to recreate those sought-after analogue sounds from the 70s and 80s with your own modern twist.
