In A.I.R. Expanded sample programming and user interface have been completely redesigned and enhanced from the ground up with five independent screens of more than 40 assignable effects and performance parameters. In addition, Sample Logic has meticulously revamped every original A.I.R. instrument and introduced a whole new collection of performance-ready instruments and multis.
A.I.R. Expanded blends the three essential building blocks of music (Ambience, Impacts, and Rhythms) into one score-effectual toolkit. Powered by NI´s Kontakt Player, this extensive 6 GB virtual instrument contains over 900 award-winning instruments and multis that include atmospheric soundscapes, impactual transitions, tempo-synced rhythmic loops and much more…
A.I.R. covers all the bases, from sci-fi, piercing, distorted tensions, and chilling action sounds to light, sacred, and spiritual atmospheres. This library truly is “The all-in-one composers toolkit!”

"A.I.R. is a great collection of contemporary sounds that all but write themselves into music. Anyone involved with scoring for contemporary media, from trailers to games to dramatic shows, should get a lot of use out of this consistently high quality library." [Virtual Instrument Magazine] -featured in October ´06
Music 4 Games [A.I.R. Review]
"If Frodo Baggins, Morpheus, and a possessed Regan MacNeil were carpooling to Burning Man, A.I.R. could be the soundtrack." [Stephen Fortner] -Keyboard Magazine
"I really like the interface for A.I.R. - useful, simple, and intuitive.. I can twist any of the sounds into something new in just seconds without having to dig down into the patches. The rhythms and electronic pulses are punchy, organic, tight and always funky - and tempo synced! I also found many impacts and ambiences in A.I.R. that are dynamic, interesting and useful. For me, A.I.R. is a nice addition to current sample libraries.. and still has it´s own unique sound. I also find it easy to load up and navigate in Kontakt2, ever ready to rumble, scrape and groove... and so it is". sole composer of CSI: New York, movies include Ali, Finding Forrester, and Any Given Sunday, as well as for the Quake, Wolfenstein, Command & Conquer and Tom Clancy´s game franchises. [Bill Brown]
"I´m sure that within a year you wont be able to turn on the TV, the radio, your game console, or visit your local multiplex without hearing A.I.R. in the music." composer GOD OF WAR, GOD OF WAR II [Gerard K. Marino]
