Audio Damage has released version 1.1.0 of Axon, a virtual instrument featuring a neuron sequencer coupled with 7 individual FM synths.
Axon is a strange creature, and we won’t tell you otherwise. Our goal was to come up with a new style of percussion sequencer/synth that wasn’t linear and x0xy, and we succeeded beyond our wildest expectations. The Neuron Sequencer in Axon is a fundamentally different way of thinking about rhythmic sequencing, and results in new patterns and styles that will bring your IDM, dance, and ambient tracks to another place.
Changes in Axon v1.1.0
- Multiple Outputs: 7 stereo outputs added, one for each voice/neuron. These are pre-mixer, and are not affected by mute, solo, pan, or fader.
- Zero Reset: A third sync mode has been added, RST. In this mode, Axon syncs to host, but every time you stop the host transport, the counters in each Neuron reset to zero. The net result is that Axon becomes much more determinate.
- Bug Fixes: The timing bug in Logic has been dealt with, as well as another obscure automation bug in the AudioUnit version, and some other minor bugs.
- CPU Load Improvement: All versions have been further optimized for a slight improvement in CPU usage.
Axon is available to purchase as an instrument plug-in for PC & Mac (VST/AU) for $59 USD.
