VIP 3.1 Standard Promo
$149.00 $119.00
Mac PCAAXAUApplicationVST

Direct control of your entire VST library for all keyboards

** This special promo for April 2020 comes with AIR Music Vacuum Pro and the Fresh AIR Expansion Pack FREE!!!

Akaiís award-winning VIP is the first and only music software that enables you to control your entire VST instrument and FX library directly from any keyboard. Switch patches from all your VSTs in one place, instantly access pre-mapped plugin parameters for hands-on knob tweaking, customize pre-set loading from multiple VSTs using Setlists, and much more.

VIP extends the capabilities beyond what any DAW offers by empowering you to quickly create and play "multis." A multi allows you to combine up to 8 patches from 1 or more plugins, with the ability to layer, mix and pan these patches all at once.

VIP software users can also create setlists that provide on-demand access to your customized instruments for stage performance and studio work. By simply pressing a single button on any Keyboard, you can adapt to song changes as the live performance progresses-without ever reaching for your computer. That's what you want!

VIP also brings you an intelligent patch browser that works across all your VST instruments to let you quickly find sounds based on instrument type, timbre, style or articulation, or simply explore patches you never knew you had!

You'll also love VIP's facilities for browsing, key zone splitting, layering of up to 8 instruments per VIP instance, expansive custom mapping capabilities, and support for any VSTi plugin. You can run as many instances of the Virtual Instrument Player as your computer allows.

VIP is ideal for live performance and a Standalone App with a built in Digital Mixer. It also runs as a VSTi, AU, or AAX plugin, allowing you access to VSTi's in virtually any DAW, such as Pro Tools, Logic Pro X and Ableton Live.
