AIR's Hybrid 3 soft synth -for a buck

AIR Music Technology Hybrid 3

I've sent them a msg to confirm this isn't some trial version, seems suspicious/misleading - if the full version (which I doubt, but it says "99% off" and who the hell pays $129 for a trial version of anything?), last thing I probably need is another synth but for a buck, wth, I'll give a try. Anyone used?

bought and using. Really impressed. For $1, what have you got to lose aside from some HD space?

Same deal/place? So it's the full version? Mind you even if "trial" means it's somewhat limited I might get, I just don't want "trial" as in expires after awhile, or only get so many uses.

Hi. I got this about 6 months ago for a $ as well. It's not a trial of any sorts. It's the full version. I have also gotten AIR Vacuum Pro at the same price (IIRC).
Great synths.
All the best.

Nice synths!
Good overall sound and very good FX onboard. What is really nice is 4 easily assignable metacontrols for complex sound manipulation just grabbing a knob.

I paid a lot of money ten years ago for some of AIRs instruments when they were PT only. A couple years back I think I paid like $50 for AIRs entire Library during a winter sale. They have also had that instrument on sale for $1 several times before. It’s good. Doesn’t sound as good as modern soft synths but has a huge library of presets that are fun to preview. I’ve tweaked a couple and use them now and again. Go for it.

Never mind; I just found out they use the freaking "iLok" crap - I'd rather eat dirt than use any plugin that mandates that royal PITA stuff. Not worth it even if free.

Here for the gear
 

It's the full version, not a trial.

And since it is a full product, you can update to the full suite called AIEP3 Complete based on this $1 product, which includes all their other instruments and expansion packs for $75 at Plugin Boutique.

Well, i had to have that ilok license manager (no dongle!!) just because Soundtoys use it, and i need Microshift in my job, a lot of it...

But that ilok without dongle is not worse that NI or PluginAlliance registration!

Thanks for mentioning this.
I just purchased this for $1.
Man, the sounds it has are amazing.

They've had Hybrid 3, Xpand 2 and Vaccum on sale for a buck before. I wonder what their endgame is. Maybe it's for brand awareness and to get people to shell out for the complete AIR bundle. I dunno.

I'd say that plus just get it in people's hands and hope word of mouth does its thing. PS they did write back and confirm it's the full version. Thx for those who chimed in with info!
