Alesis | Airsynth


With 50 sounds and effects, all controlled with the wave of a hand, the airSynth provides the kind of new-thinking sound construction that will keep you bleeping, whooshing and bathing in audio.

The table-top airSynth produces dramatic synthesized sounds and sound effects when the you pass your hand over the invisible 3D sphere above the product. Infrared Axyz technology lets control up to five sound variables simultaneously by moving your hand left to right, forward and backward, or up and down over the product, making airSynth very easy and intuitive to use.

The dramatic soundset and unique user interface make airSynth ideal for use in live performances, DJ applications, music and post production, and on-air broadcast applications. Features both RCA ins and outs, so other signals can pass through it - saving you mixer channels. It also mounts on any standard microphone stand.

Velocity As with a piano, the harder you hit a key, the louder the sound, unlike most organs which always produce the same loudness no matter how hard you hit a key. Aftertouch Pressing a key after you activated it. Channel Aftertouch, no matter which key, it will send a Channel message. Poly Aftertouch, sends the pressure per key instead of the whole channel.
Values for OSC, LFO, Filter, Envelope are per voice unless stated otherwise.
