Loom II - 9.99 $US

Recommended Posts

https://www.jrrshop.com/air-music-tech-loom-upgrade

While the item says "upgrade from Loom Classic", I installed and activated it successfully without having Loom Classic beforehand.

(At that price, I figured what the heck, if it doesn't work, I'll just buy Loom Classic for another 9.99, but didn't have to in the end.)

There is a regular Loom II product for 19.99.

I love AiR instruments. Been  eyeing this upgrade for a while.  This instrument sounds so good, it seems I can stay awake all night, going through its great presets and playing... Worth every cent.

No brainer, thanks PaulP. 

The upgrade includes Tapestry expansion pack and Touch Loops AIR Bonus Pack.

My Loom2 upgrade version (the only version I have) doesn't seem to include Tapestry as the presets aren't in Loom's preset folder (I'll be copying them into it, as per the install instructions).

The free Tapestry download version found on the fingermarks website also includes NKS patches :

Where is the Touch Loops AIR Bonus Pack ?  Can't find it on AIR's website.

Sorry, I can't answer your question but raise a new one. Did the installation and authorization work for you without having Loom classic installed? I am thinking about getting Loom 2 just for fun, seems to be a powerful and playful synth.

I received an email from JRR with the Loom II product license and at the end of the email it said..."Free with your purchase, the Tapestry expansion pack and Touch Loops AIR Bonus Pack: -" with links to each item.

Incidentally I already had Loom installed and Loom II seems to have replaced it but all of the Loom 1 patches are available under a Loom 1 Legacy folder.

Thanks ZincT for this.  I found the links down at the bottom of the email which I had missed.

It was a pretty convoluted download, installation and activation procedure for Loom with multiple websites to visit and codes to provide.  I initially ended up with two versions of Loom in my iLok account, a demo version and a full version, and had to move my licence from the first to the second, once I figured things out.

I don’t have Loom I.  The LoomII upgrade looks exactly the same as the new LoomII license. Only the cost. $10 vs $20. Is the $20 worth it?  Yes, I am getting cheaper by the day!  Or maybe the ‘upgrade’ doesn’t even check for Loom I?

Just purchased the upgrade without having Loom I. We shall see.

EDIT: The Loom II upgrade installed and ran just fine, without Loom I being installed. Since it includes "remastered" versions of most (all?) of the Loom I presets, I don't see any need to go through the Loom I to Loom II route for users new to Loom.

I own 3 other AIR synths, so this didn't bother me.

Bizarrely at Plug in boutique  UK pricing is £12 and change for Loom 2 but £40 and change for the upgrade.😕

I promised myself no more synths, but the force is strong at $9.99.....

Downloading demo in last ditch attempt to convince myself that I don't need it.

I promised myself never to promise myself no more synths or FX.

No sense in making a promise that I'll break EVERY SINGLE TIME.

Anybody got a needle nose pliers I can use to pull the GAS fishhook out of my mouth? 🤣

Make sure to disregard all the time you've spent writing about it, downloading it, and playing all the zillion presets before you pull the trigger on not getting it. 😜

Well so far I've spent over an hour installing it and trying to get the VST scanner to recognise the .dll which didn't happen so I gave up.

Here is my tale:  Installed it without the license installed to Ilok.    Ran cake and the scanner was stuck on Loom.dll.  Closed cake to find that underneath was a dialog box asking for license info.

So I got the license, installed into Ilok.   Ran Cake and no scan, no loom detected.  So I ran the full scan from the manager and Loom found.   Loom was under "Instrument" tab listed under Uncategorized .   Set it to synth and all is good.

I already had the original Loom, so I reclaimed the Loom 2 license key to my iLok account first, then ran the installer. CbB picked it up first time.

I'm glad they've kept the random button. Some really cool sounds & effects can be made using it.

I have most of the AIR instruments, and the best recipe for installation success is to always authorize them in iLok BEFORE installing the plugins. Never had any issues doing it that way over many instruments and two computers.

And I also noticed that Loom II replaced the original Loom after the next plugin scan ran. I presume that it uses the same VST ID as the original.
