The characterful and versatile Vacuum Pro by Air Music Tech is currently on sale for just $14.99 over at ADSR Sounds (usually retailing at $149.99 that’s a massive 90% off).
The Vacuum Pro is advertised as a ‘’Polyphonic Analog Tube Synthesizer’’, although this is a soft synth you aren’t actually getting an analogue tube unit! The synth comes in plug in form and utilises tube circuit modelling to give you that sought after warm, crunchy tone.
The plug in contains four ‘analogue’ oscillators, several envelopes and filters and a series of built in effects.
If you’re after some cool subtractive synth sounds that are reminiscent of the 70s and 80s then this is a really good option.
The Vacuum Pro combines two separate synthesizer parts which can be layered or split to create a huge analog sound.
If that’s not enough then the built-in doubling effect can be used to widen or thicken your tone.
The high, low and band pass filters give an extra level of shaping and you’ll also have four envelope generators included and tempo sync’d LFO.
Sound designers Richard Devine and Mark Ovenden have created over 350 patches, all tweakable, or if you’ve hit a wall and are looking for some inspiration you can randomly generate new settings with the Smart Sound Randomization function.
This is a fun plug in to use, and great if you’re looking for a replication of the analogue/tube tone.
The discounted price of $14.99 is available over at ADSR SOUNDS.
