Audio Damage Releases Axon – FM Percussion Synth/Sequencer
Audio Damage has released Axon, a new style of percussion sequencer/synth. The Neuron Sequencer in Axon is a fundamentally different way of thinking about rhythmic sequencing that will result in new electronic music patterns and styles.
Axon’s sequencer can either drive external synths and samplers or its own internal voices, of which there are seven FM-based sources, but designed for quick and easy programming, and fine-tuned for percussive-type sounds. A full MIDI Learn complement allows external hardware control of both the sequencer and the internal voices, and an on-board stereo delay taken right from our fairly thick collection of delay algorithms extends the rhythmic possibilities right to the edge of what any sane person could possibly stand.
Audio Damage claims that Axon is an experimental tool, and isn’t for everybody, but if your interests lie in the abstract realm, and you want to take your rhythm and melody programming to strange new worlds, this might be just the thing.
Audio Damage’s Axon is available now for Mac and PC and will set you back $59. More information on Audio Damage Axon.
