Based in Germany, AIR Music Technology started as Wizoo Sound Design, one of the earliest pioneers in virtual instrument technology. The AIR team is responsible for the core of much of the effects offerings in Avid's Pro Tools software, and also developed a suite of award-winning virtual instruments specifically for Pro Tools. AIR Music Technology is a member of the premier family of brands.

The AIR Instrument Expansion Pack contains:

  • Loom 1.0.1 — Modular Additive Synthesizer (NEW)
  • Vacuum Pro 1.0.1 — Polyphonic Analogue Tube Synthesizer (NEW)

Each of these “2.0” versions of the five older “core” software instrument (Hybrid, Velvet, Structure, Strike, and Transfuser) fully supports the 64-bit AAX plug-in format of the recently released Avid Pro Tools 11, while also offering backwards compatibility with 32-bit AAX support for Pro Tools 10.

The new instruments, Loom and Vacuum Pro, also offer 64-bit AAX support in addition to RTAS, AU, and VST. Loom takes an “exclusive” modular approach to creating the sounds and unique harmonic signatures that are the trademarks of Additive Synthesis. Vacuum Pro, is a polyphonic analog tube synthesizer, which, AIR says, re-invents “the gritty glory of the analog age.”

NOTE: If you are installing for the first time then ignore this guide.

Custom Install The AIR Instrument Expansion Pack


Open the installer package and you’ll get this folder, it will differ on a Windows PC. Double click on the installer package to start.

Depending on the instrument you are installing you’ll get a dialogue box showing which one, in this case it’s Transfuser - I already have the version for Pro Tools so I only want to install the plug-in components and not all the library. Thankfully the software is smart so it will know where all your libraries are installed from the previous installation. I tested it on Logic Pro X (AU) and REAPER (VST) and it found the libraries without any issue.

Press continue and you’ll get a licence screen, simply press continue, keep going until you get to the screen below and then choose ‘Customize’ bottom left of the screen.

Clicking the ‘Customize’ option will bring up the screen shown below. The top four options should be ticked, this is where you need to untick the fourth option down that says ‘Factory Content’ as a previous installation should have taken care of the content. The options below will be greyed out as these options are not selectable and have to be installed.
