AIR Transfuser 2 Groove Machine Virtual Instrument at a Glance:
  • A sound-tweaker's groove-creation playground
  • M.A.R.I.O. function defines creative randomness
  • Loaded with limitless live-performance potential
A sound-tweaker's groove-creation playground

It all starts off with a blissfully simple drag-and-drop environment that makes loading up sounds as easy as grabbing an audio file and placing it in the Tracks pane. All of the initial slicing, stretching, beat-matching, pad assignment, etc are handled seamlessly by Transfuser 2, allowing you to focus on sound creation and sequencing and dialing in effects. AIR Transfuser 2 comes with over 4.5GB of loops and samples, so finding a starting point should be a no-brainer, but you can always load up your own ACID, REX, Apple Loops, AIFF, and WAV files if you like, or you can create new sounds with the built-in synth engines.

M.A.R.I.O. function defines creative randomness

AIR Transfuser 2 opens up a lot of parameters for your tweaking pleasure. That's great if you want to dive in deep, but what if you're looking for inspiration for new groove ideas? Check out M.A.R.I.O., Transfuser 2's amazing random groove variation engine. M.A.R.I.O. isn't your typical randomizer function. Actually, this clever function features a set of remarkable algorithms that can analyze your groove and make intelligent variations to its pitch, rhythm, level, filter, and more. How much variation and what's effected is entirely up to you, allowing you to create anything from subtle embellishments to totally new grooves with the click of your mouse.

Loaded with limitless live-performance potential

Whether you're taking your Pro Tools rig onstage for live performance or just crave the feel of an instrument that responds to the touch of a hardware MIDI controller, AIR made Transfuser 2 to be the truly playable plug-in groove machine you've been dreaming of. Trigger series of your own prepared sequences or play Transfuser 2 as a standard sound module with your MIDI controller. Thanks to its MIDI learn function, you can assign MIDI controllers to virtually all of Transfuser's controls, allowing you to quickly set up your rig just the way you like it.

Somewhat dated sounds but useful

Sounds-wise, Transfuser 2 is decent but nothing earth shattering. The effects, though, allow for some interesting results. If you can get it at a discount, it's a nice tool to add to your arsenal.
