Description

Multitimbral All-In-One Workstation is here!

Air Music Technology originally created Xpand! as part of the Creative Collection of instrument plug-ins included as part of Avid™ Pro Tools™. With the release of Pro Tools 8, this widely popular workstation was given new controls, improved features, an additional Gigabyte of sounds, and a new name: Xpand!2.

As the popularity of Pro Tools grew, more and more musicians and producers came to rely on the incredible sonic firepower of this amazing workstation. Xpand!2 continued to evolve, and demand grew. Finally, Xpand!2 is now available on its own, available to anyone who hungers for the finest sounds—instantly.

AIR Music Xpand! 2 VST Synth Plugin

Four on the Floor

Xpand!2 is a multitimbral workstation offering four active sound slots, or parts, per patch. Each part is provided with its own MIDI channel, Note Range (Zone), Mix, Arpeggiation, Modulation, and Effects settings—an excellent method for creating individual parts. Harnessing the four parts together to build one amazing Patch is where Xpand!2 reveals its true power. The Voice Mode for each part can be set to polyphonic or monophonic. Polyphonic parts can have up to 64 voices; monophonic parts offer First, Last, Highest, or Lowest priority making it easy to designate a bass, lead, or solo instrument.

Sounds Galore

Using everything from wavetables and FM synthesis to sample playback, the expert sound design team at Air Music Tech has carefully created thousands of ready-to-play Xpand!2 patches. Creating your own is easy, too. Parts can be quickly browsed and are conveniently sorted into 29 categories, offering a simple path to find just what you’re looking for.

Smart Knobs and Easy Edits

Six smart knobs are provided for custom-tweaking your Xpand!2 sounds. Each knob changes function depending on the part selected, offering hands-on control of the most critical sound elements. Select the Easy mode, and all six knobs now control all four of the common parts in a patch simultaneously for quickly performing those crucial edits. And of course, all of your edits can be saved for instant recall.

Major Modulation

Express yourself with powerful performance features! Pitch Bend wheel and Aftertouch (pressure) modulation assignments can be made independently for each part. Modulation rates can be tempo sync’d or free-wheeling. Numerous modulation destinations are provided, and the WAVE destination parameters are different from part to part, providing unique Xpand!2 sound-shaping capabilities.

Advanced Arpeggiation

Keep things moving with advanced arpeggiation. Simply set the Rate—including dotted and triplet values—and then select the Mode. Using the Latch switch allows the arpeggiator to continue to play, even when your hands leave the keyboard. Each Xpand!2 part is provided with its own arpeggiator. Many parts such as Action Pads and Loops will automatically activate the Arpeggiator, as it forms an integral part of the sound.

Dynamic Effects Duo

Xpand!2 includes two independent effect processors with fifty studio-grade effects, ranging from rich reverbs to the mind-bending Chaos Delay. When selecting a new effect type, Xpand!2 will instantly change the edit knob functions to provide accurate control of every effect. The output of FX1 can be fed into the input of FX2 to create advanced “cascade-style” effects.

ACTIVATION

Activating a License with the iLok License Manager

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.

    This is a very cool offering from AIR Music Technology, the team behind my go-to piano plug-in, MiniGrand. First off, Xpand! 2 has a freakin’ TON of sounds built into it — everything from cool synth pads to strings to choirs to drums to loops. It would take you a month to go through all the sounds. Xpand! 2 will allow you to stack four of these sounds together and mix them to your liking. So you could have some sawtooth grit combined with choir “ooos” combined with a flute combined with wind sounds, or whatever floats your boat. It even has two effects units, so you can throw some reverb and delay on top to really dial in your tone before it ever reaches your DAW. It is quickly becoming a favorite in my collection.

  10. Tanner Feldman (verified owner)

    I give it three stars because of the sounds and the quality of them are great! But once I found out that this VST does not support Individual MIDI note panning in at least FL Studios I was very disappointed in this product. The point of a VST is to help you with your creative process and flow not limit it.
