It’s update time again for those hard working guys at Audio Damage. Axon 2 is a sequencer based on an artificial neural network that drives seven FM percussion voices that share an FM and AM buss. The updated version includes 32/64-bit VST and VST3, and 64-bit AAX for Windows 8 or greater, and as a 32/64-bit AU/VST/VST3/AAX for OSX (10.8 or greater). An iOS version is coming soon (yay!).
In its designer’s words, Axon 2 “is an odd beast, and my personal favorite of all our products.” Imagine a drum synth driven by a modified artificial neural network as a sequencer, feautring seven FM-based percussion voices, that are really a single 18-operator FM voice.
It may sound weird, but Axon 2 is surprisingly intuitive once you get the knack of it, and is capable of all-new, complex rhythms that repeat in surprising ways.
You might think of it as a “random sequence generator,” but there is nothing random in Axon; it is entirely determinative.
• Artificial Neural Network sequencer features seven neurons, and is easily programmed to create strange new repeating rhythms.
• Seven FM percussion voices that also buss together to create a single monolithic complex percussion synthesizer.
• Full mixer with pan, level, mute, and solo on each voice.
• Built-in stereo delay with X/Y pad control over feedback and filter frequency, for live playability.
• MIDI in and out, for driving Axon from DAW and hardware sequencers, or driving your drum rack or other samples from Axon.
• Internal transport for non-synchronized playback.
• Resizable vector-based user interface.
• Drawn reciprocation dingle arm to reduce sinusoidal depleneration.
• XML-based cross-platform, human-readable preset system, with copy/paste, for easy transferring of your own presets and third-party offerings.
