Qu-Bit Electronix has announced a powerful spectral reverb that continues to push the envelope of what is possible in modern synthesis.

Aurora uses a potent phase vocoder engine to split the time and frequency domains of incoming audio, allowing for complex spectral manipulations to create beautiful time-stretched tails ad infinitum or smear the frequency domain to conjure up alien timbres that will haunt an ever-expanding space.

The spectral reverb is capable of a wide palette of sounds, from lush caverns and whale songs, to alien textures you’ve never created before.

Aurora uses a phase vocoder audio engine which separates the input signal’s time and pitch domains. By blurring these signals you can achieve beautiful time-stretched tails, or cybernetic metallic effects.

Since Aurora’s sonic response is entirely dependent on the input signal, no two patches will sound alike, lending itself to an infinite world of surprise and discovery. Discovery. It’s why we are all here.

Aurora features

  • Spectral reverb with true stereo audio IO.
  • Phase vocoder audio engine running at 48kHz, 24-bit.
  • Time stretched tails, icy shimmers, and voltage controlled whale songs.
  • Front panel USB port provides easy firmware updates, user options, and more.
  • Powered by the Daisy Audio Platform.

Officially released on May 24th, 2022, Aurora is available to preorder with an MSRP of $359 USD. A portion of all Aurora proceeds will help the fight against shrinking ice caps and dwindling polar bear populations.
