Airwindows Consolidated v2024-05-06 (All Plugins Bundle Suite) x64 x86 VST3 AU CLAP LV2 STANDALONE LiNUX WiN MAC [FREE] screenshot

All nearly-400 Airwindows plugins

For many years, I’ve built up a library of DSP effects, executed in a stripped-down, retro-friendly format that is impossibly light and efficient compared to how plugins usually are. It’s also completely overwhelming at nearly 400 plugins all with their own names (or iterations like Channel6, Channel7, Console8, Console9 and so on) and stuck on older formats like VST2, because for years I insisted that Steinberg might try to take away the legal right to put out VST2 plugins and I wasn’t going to risk that, being committed to supporting all possible machines.

Airwindows Consolidated fixes all those things, at a stroke. It’s just become the one true way for a lot of people to use the Airwindows plugin ecosystem, and it will be fully supported going forward as a format for all new plugins (at least, all new plugins that aren’t themselves a giant leap forward, more on that later). What do you get?

Airwindows Consolidated is CLAP native, and gives you all the things special to that format (as seen in the Manual, running as a CLAP plugin in Bitwig!) A lot of us feel this is the format of the future. Now it’s got all of Airwindows, native, and will continue to have the new plugins added.

Airwindows Consolidated is also VST3 native, so this is for the Cubase users and other folks who can’t get on with VST2 for whatever reason. It’s also for folks who can’t handle the ‘slider only’ minimalist look: there’s knobs! (the Rack version has knobs, jacks, and attentuators, because it’s a Rack module!). It’s also AU. It’s also LV2. Lots of native formats!

There’s also theming: it reads dark mode or light mode off your system setting, AND you can override that if you want. No more bright gray rectangles if you don’t like them. At a stroke, a lot of known issues are just gone. You can type in values in a text box (heck, I can’t even do that with my own VST2s in Reaper, only with the AUs).

Doesn’t stop there: Airwindows Consolidated has screen reader support. Why, I ask you, shouldn’t visually impaired musicians make AUDIO music? Airwindows Consolidated works with screen readers to properly read out all the text. So what’s this ‘all the text’, how hard could that be?

Airwindows Consolidated contains the entire Airwindopedia. Every plugin shows the entire Chris explanation given on release, in a sidebar. That’s close to a hundred and fifty thousand words, built in! And because you’re not going to read a hundred and fifty thousand words just to get started…

Airwindows Consolidated contains a whole menu system, which defaults to ‘Recommended’. That shows basically Airwindows’ Greatest Hits, the ones you’ll want to look at first. It’s a much smaller list, and isn’t always the most recent plugin in a series. For instance, Galactic2 is more specialized than the Recommended original Galactic. There’s also ‘Basic’, which is a set of plugins that are easily understood and used when you’re just getting started with mixing and music making, and ‘Recent’, which is just the newest stuff. And when you’re ready, there’s ‘All Plugins’, which opens up the menus to everything. (If you save a mix and then change the menus, it won’t take away your plugin just because the new menu setting isn’t listing it: you’re safe there)

This is all you need. It might be the only Airwindows plugin you ever download, because there’ll be a new build of it every week every time a new Airwindows plugin drops. Just re-download it and re-install. It has installers to make it easy for you to do that, and it’s an open source project so it’s hosted by Microsoft at their expense, not me and Paul. Downloading it costs us nothing, so go give it a try.

And who do you have to thank for this? Well, yes, it’s all nearly-400 Airwindows plugins. If those didn’t exist, neither would Airwindows Consolidated. But I wouldn’t have been able to do this on my own, even as an open source developer. So this is thanks to the inspired work of Baconpaul, of the Surge XT synthesizer project, who also made my VCV Rack module be a thing (and it is essentially the same as this: it should have all the same features and all the new plugins, each week). The whole Surge XT project deserves your attention and support, and there’s more than just Paul involved: for instance, EvilDragon has had lots of influence on the menu system, actively helped develop the categories, and at his request the entire Airwindows website now uses those same categories to help find stuff.

Airwindows Consolidated is out, and it’s gonna be at the top of my list of ways to download my plugins. This is a big deal. I hope you like how much easier this has made the whole world of Airwindows :)

Thx a lot for this. In the last months I've dreamed about how to manage every plugin possible through an "almost D.O.S." interface, wondering how many tons of our machine's resources are wasted in non-musical stuff. I don't wanna sound freaky, I love many of the best plugins interfaces, but... we don't produce from our eyes, but from our ears. Would love to see how much cpu is really necessary to run some of the "very heavy loading" Acustica's plugins, for example.

This is a more general problem with software development in general; bloat/feature creep

Minimalism & simplicity in software makes it EASIER to use, not harder. Simple things should be simple, complex things should be possible.

Chris's plugins all have simple controls and are made to sound good by default without the user interfering with them. People are put off by this and the lack of a "pretty" UI because they're used to fiddling with controls for ages to get things to sound right.

I can only say that the value of this Bundle is very high and as Chris says I remind you to mix with your ears, not with your eyes.

I completely agree with that statement. However, certain DAWs like Ableton (I'm unsure about Bitwig) are rack-based, which can make plugin controls extremely small, and some controls may not even appear (based on my experience). Another significant issue is the lack of control snapping.

I believe this solution addresses many of these problems. I really enjoy using Airwindows plugins.

These are great.
Like those MDA plugins.

You can take more experimental chances piling everything in there, just on a whim, because they're so light. With something this light, you dont have to choose just 1, or 2, or only a few. As many slots as you've got.

OR, even better, just stick this AIO on anything.
8 megs is easily within my CPU/memory budget for something that does everything. You could stick one of these in every slot.

I could even use the AIO for ideas,
and then swap the singles in when I decide what I want.
Its just a great idea.
  Resident 15.09.2011 1 3804
Speaking of piling everything in there, wouldn't it be nice if we could chain several Airwindows effects in the same rack? I like the way this looks. Very neat! Some of his plugins are so good and so useful I do use single plugins. Like ClipOnly which is a safety limiter on my master bus, or different reverbs and delays.

Wow, this is so great.
Basically nails solutions to the common problems we usually face when using these plugins.
Nice, very nice!
