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.AEON Rhythmic EQ Filter Page
Master 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 Advanced Trigger-FX, or tweak individual sounds.
The sound of AEON comes from a combination of deeply sampled Organic Instruments, Racks of Analog Modular Synths and Fx, and an advance arsenal of FX all housed in the Kontakt 5 Player Engine. Loops are presented as both menu-style suites and single loops with ‘MIDI Drag and Drop’ capability. Create instant melodic grooves by layering individual loops from the menus, or recompose a loop by re-arranging the slices using the single loops.
AEON Rhythmic offers 315 carefully sculpted melodic loops arranged into 3 main categories: Menu Suites, Single Loops, and Three Loop Combos for quick and easy melodic development. 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 Single Loop presets provide detailed control over individual loops. Tweak the level, pan and tuning for each slice, or quickly import the midi data into your DAW with the simple “MIDI To Host” Sculpt your tone with per loop Tune, Pan, Level, and EQs or add sizzle and punch with the 4-band Master EQ.
AEON Rhythmic’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 sequences (up to 128 steps) of full melodic loops (in Menu Suites). Or activate the Loop Mutator with a Single Loop preset to quickly re-compose or change the timing of any loop. 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.
Three levels of effects are intrinsically bound to the presets – apply effects globally, trigger performance effects, or tweak individual sounds. Master Effects control distortion, reverb, delay, and modulation. The Advanced Trigger FX (pictured here) are switchable real-time effects with incredible scope for intuitive, creative sound-tweaking. Control the attack and decay of each triggered effect, or turn on the sequence, and modulate the effect in time. The Punish and Twist knobs preside over everything, adding signature drive and character.
The Sound of AEON
Over the course of two years, Heavyocity captured in-depth recordings of a wide array of instruments. Over 10,000 samples were recorded at 48 kHz, 24-bit in world class studios. Instruments ranging from Tuned Cowbells and Upright Bass to pristine Crotales and Harps provide you with a vast range of timbres at your fingertips.
AEON provides a vast range of sampled material including a number of unique ensembles. Performed in unison, these ensembles were made up of instruments like Tuned Dinner Bells, Stringed Oil Cans, and Plucked Guitar.
Pure Analog Synth
For AEON, Heavyocity captured true analog fatness from a combination of modular analog synth rigs. Carefully crafted, tuned, and tracked, these sounds range from serene to horrifically aggressive.
