    Great discount! Still learning how to use the plugin.

  22. Des L. (verified owner)

    Great product at a great price. Nice to have some Midi files targeted to the mapping of the samples included. Good way of exploring each kit.

  23. Jon Turner (verified owner)

    Great drum synth.

  24. Peter (verified owner)

    Interesting drum synth with a lot of possibilities, a bunch of sounds, lots of midi files and a “tuning” section (distortion etc). Generally not too difficult to use but needs a bit of time getting familiar, so experimenting and fiddling is part of the game. Drum Synth 500 offers live playing and interesting sound tweaking. The number of the presets are ok. £149 would be way overpriced bur for $9.99 it is a no-brainer.

  25. Gleb S. (verified owner)

    Interesting plugin, but freezing in Reaper. And in general It leaves the impression that the development has been abandoned long ago – ancient installer, etc. Not what I expected.

  26. Anonymous (verified owner)

    awesome !

  27. Mark Givens (verified owner)

    Good value why not get it?

  28. Pavel

    No scalable interface, small ui. Regularly crashed into “no AAA daw” .

  29. Anonymous (verified owner)

    The sounds are very flat sounding and not so good. A mixture that doesn’t seem to help.

Activating a License with the iLok License Manager

AIR Music Technology utilizes Pace/Eden security created by iLok. Any software that uses Pace/Eden security can be de-activated if necessary, using the included iLok License Manager which is installed with any AIR software title. The license can then be re-activated to any other computer or an iLok key, which is registered to the same user account.

Download: iLok Link Here

While all of our plugins can be activated through their designated authorizer applications, in some cases it's more efficient to just enter your authorization code directly into the iLok License Manager.

1. If you have never seen or used iLok before, click on Create New Account in the Sign In window and follow the prompts to create an account. Click on Sign-In in the top left corner. If you have used iLok before with other products and have an account, sign-in to your account.

2. Once you are logged in, click on Licenses at the top of the window and choose Redeem Activation Code.

3. A window will appear with space for you to enter an authorization code.

4. Find the Authorization Code for your plugin. You would have received this code with the New Order Notification email from ProducerSpot. Also, you can find your code in My Account > Orders (check the specific order). When you're ready, click Next.

6. You will be prompted to choose a location for your license. You are free to choose an iLok dongle if you have one, but for most users, just choose your computer (this will be the option with the computer icon on the left) and click Activate.

7. You will be asked to confirm this one more time. Click OK.

8. Finally, iLok will notify you when the activation is complete!

Repeat steps 3 - 8 to authorize any additional plugins.

Deactivating the Licenses on your Computer

Deactivating a license can come in handy if you need to authorize the plugin on a new computer and need to free up an authorization. The license can then be transferred to your iLok account and moved onto the new computer or iLok by logging into the iLok License Manager on the new computer.
