NAMM 2011: Avid Announces the M-Audio Venom Synth

NAMM 2011: Avid Announces M-Audio Venom Synth
Great deals on musical instruments

Leading pro-audio specialists Avid have released the M-Audio Venom Synth at NAMM 2011.

The aim of Avid's new synth is to combine the warm sound and character of vintage keyboards with the intuitive control and workflow advantages of modern digital processing.

They're hoping it will provide cutting-edge sound options to musicians of all skill levels.

The sound design capabilities allow musicians to create distinctive sounds using 41 oscillator waves and 53 drum sounds sampled from renowned 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 musicians to comfortably create music and play using a 49-note, full-size, synth-action keybed and intuitive top-panel controls.

The Venom software editor provides a clear 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.

A 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 - opens up workflows so 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, forming a powerful, all-in-one music creation, mixing and recording solution.
