Xpand! Your Creativity with a FREE Pro Tools Virtual Instrument

Published: Wed January 25, 2006  News Feed
The first release from the new Digidesign Advanced Instrument Research Group, Xpand! is a free RTAS sound factory workstation synthesis/sample-playback and effects plug-in that provides fast, efficient ways to access and manipulate thousands of high-quality sounds directly from within Pro Tools.

Start with any of the more than 1,000 factory patches and then fine-tune the four component sound parts to craft anything from pristine-sounding acoustic instruments to complex synthesized soundscapes or loop-driven techno tracks. Built for songwriters, film composers, DJs, electronic musicians, music producers, and sound designers, Xpand! is a sonic powerhouse that will become an indispensable component of any Pro Tools® environment.
  • Comprehensive sound factory for all musical styles and applications
  • More than 1,000 factory patches and 500 combinable part presets
  • Four layer-able parts for millions of combinations
  • Subtractive synthesis, wavetable, FM synthesis, sample playback, virtual tonewheels, and effects
  • 64-note polyphony
  • Quick and easy sound tweaking
  • Two built-in effect sections and four arpeggiators/phrase generators
  • Highly efficient — requires little CPU power per instance
Xpand! for Free
Xpand! is free! Pick up a free CD installer at this year’s NAMM convention. Beginning soon, you’ll also be able to order an Xpand! CD installer from the online DigiStore for a small handling fee.

Xpand! will soon be included with all Pro Tools|HD® and Pro Tools LE™ systems, Pro Tools M-Powered™ software, the Music Production Toolkit and DV Toolkit™ 2, Pro Tools 7.x updates and upgrades, and the Pro Tools 101 Official Courseware.

Because of the size of the software installer, Xpand! will not be available for download.
