Control Your Sound
AEON’S user interface was designed FOR composers and sound designers BY composers and sound designers, providing simple, intuitive ways to alter the sounds without leaving the interface. Similar to DAMAGE, three levels of effects are intrinsically bound to the Melodic and Rhythmic Components — apply effects globally, engage the Trigger-FX, or tweak individual sounds.
Twist, Punish, Effect
Globally affect the preset with one of the 4 Master FX (Delay, Mod, Drive, and Convolution). You have control over four effect-specific parameters (like effect amount, rate, size, or depth). Dial in the aggression with the signature “Punish” Knob, a combination of saturation, distortion, and compression. Or, modulate the shape of the sound with the new “Twist” knob.
EQ, Filter, Modulate
Sculpt your tone with per-channel and per-loop EQs or add sizzle and punch with the 4-band Master EQ. New in AEON is the ability to control the modulation of filters with an envelope or LFO. Alter the amount and rate of an LFO, or trigger the Filter with an ADSR envelope.
The Mixer Page
AEON’s mixer provides tune, pan, and level control for each of it’s 3 channels. Adjust the faders for the right blend of organic sounds, detune synth parts, or automate the controls via midi to modulate the mix. Tap into per channel (or linkable) ADSR envelopes and filters for timbre tweaking. Per channel solo and mute buttons isolate individual sounds if desired, while “Purge” turns off an individual channel and reduces the instrument’s memory footprint.
AEON Melodic's Advanced Arpeggiator allows for composition of melodic and rhythmic phrases. Load one of the 5 factory presets, or save your own for use in any preset. You have full control over step amount and can adjust time signature, note subdivision (straight or triplet), individual note duration, pitch, and velocity. There are also controls for retrigger, glide, poly/mono, octave randomizing, and playback type (chord, pairs, etc). It includes 8 fully customizable and linkable patterns per preset, to create long and intricate melodic phrases.
The Loop Mutatortm
AEON's all-new Loop Mutator™ allows you to re-compose and re-imagine 300 loops with spectacular results. You have full control over step amount, time signature, note subdivision (straight or triplet), individual note duration, Loop/Slice selection, and velocity. There are also controls for glide, octave randomizing, and playback type (chord, pairs, etc). Eight fully customizable and linkable patterns per preset allow you to create complex melodic grooves and patterns. Use any of AEON's tonal loops as they are or turn on the Loop Mutator™ and create unique sequences that are completely your own.
AEON Rhythmic provides the loops in two types of presets, Menu Suites and Single Loops. The Menu Suites provide 63 loops intelligently mapped across the keyboard, ranging from low to high timbres. You can easily change the tonal center by using the tuning keyswitches found at the bottom of the keyrange. The Singe Loop presets provide detailed control over individual loops. Tweak the level, pan and tuning for each slice, and use the new Advanced Trigger FX, Amp Sequencer, and Loop Mutator™ to further re-define your sound. In addition, the “MIDI To Host” button allows you to quickly import all of the loop’s slice midi data to any DAW with the simple drag of the mouse.
