Akai Professional and Plugivery have announced the launch of VIP 3.0 Standard and VIP 3.0 Plus. Here's the details in their own words...
Akai's "VIP plug-in series" are 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 set-lists, 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.
The "VIP 3.0 Plus" bundle includes Akai's VIP 3.0 software AND the following Air Music's plug-ins: CREATIVE FX Plus, Hybrid 3, Vacuum Pro, Xpand!2, Loom 1 and the ToolRoom Hybrid 3 Expansions, Plus, 40 Multis pre-built featuring chords from many popular songs for instant inspiration.
