[NAMM] Avid M-Audio Venom
The M-Audio Venom synthesizer delivers its take on the emulation of classic analog synthesis—combining the sound and character of vintage keyboards with the control and workflow advantages of modern digital processing.
This new entry into the synthesizer market has the following features:
Sound design capabilities—allow customers to create distinctive sounds using 41 oscillator waves and 53 drum sounds sampled from vintage keyboards. Users can add realism to their mixes with a DSP-induced oscillator drift, and additional sound complexity with a 12-voice polyphony with three oscillators per voice, as well as 16 modulation routings.
Full-sized keyboard and ergonomic design—enables customers to create music and play using a 49-note, full-size, synth-action keybed and intuitive top-panel controls.
Included Vyzex Venom software editor—provides a visual representation of all synth settings and parameters so users can arrange sounds into banks, rename patches, save backups on their computers and collaborate with other users. Users can also mash up multiple patches and create new hybrid sounds with the built-in patch collider.
Built-in USB audio/MIDI interface—gives customers the ability to record audio from instruments, mics or other sound sources, or process external audio using Venom onboard effects and filters, without the need for additional audio interface hardware.
Compatibility with Pro Tools and third-party recording solutions—customers can work directly with Pro Tools, Pro Tools M-Powered, Pro Tools SE and or third-party DAWs, including Ableton Live, Propellerhead Reason, Apple Logic and GarageBand.
