9 Soundware released its new Air EXS24 Instrument.

The concept behind the sound set was to use sounds generated by air to create a transparent-sounding percussive instrument, 9 Soundware says.

Functionally similar to a hi-hat, the instrument was designed to add rhythmic movement to arrangements, but in a subtler manner.

The samples are of quick blasts of air created with a gas duster, a flyswatter, and a clothesline. The wind sounds, which are delicate and difficult to control, according to 9 Soundware, were recorded, edited, and programmed into an EXS24 instrument. While minimalist in approach, the sound set supposedly features a wide range of timbres, with many variations on simple bursts to complex sounds that capture the motion of the objects.

Air includes 84 sounds (sampled at 2-21 velocities for a total of 402 samples) that are mapped across a 7 octave range in an EXS24 instrument. The 28 MB download includes 1 .EXS file and 402 WAV files (24-bit/44.1 kHz).

Pricing
Air is available now for $29.99 at www.9soundware.com.
