The Sound of AEON

Overview

From pristine and expressive to dark and aggressive, AEON Rhythmic delivers 400+ presets of pure inspiration, melding super-fat analog synths with expressive organic instruments into a breathtaking electro-organic collection of cutting edge loops. This unique collection combines traditional, ethnic, and orchestral instruments with searing synths and edgy samples, all created with Heavyocity's signature quality.
AEON Rhythmic Punish Knob

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.
Instrument Details

Instrument Details

The sound of AEON comes from a combination of deeply sampled Organic Instruments, Racks of Analog Modular Synths, 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.
Single Loops

Perform

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.
Loop Mutator

Mutate

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.
Advanced Trigger FX

Effect

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.

It provides a great repertoire of sounds and sequences for scoring, using a clear and clever interface and the right tools to bring life to your track.

    "I really love the multi-sampled organic patches - truly original sounds that inspire new ideas with a few notes. Seriously, though…you guys are making it WAY TOO EASY to sound like a synth programming maestro. Aeon is so tweakable and easy to make your own. And man, what a sound! I've never heard synths that sit so well in my mixes without touching a thing - full and fat without taking up too much space.

    "...both Aeon Rhythmic and Melodic sound fantastic. I've come to expect that. But Heavyocity has gone five steps further in their programming. There is a true, real, usable, and to my mind the finest digital emulation of a step sequencer in these libraries! The sound shaping possible in the Aeon interface is better than any Kontakt library we've used to date at my studio. Simply put - instantly usable sounds in an infinitely customizable interface, deeply and expertly programmed."

The sounds are really well done, very creative and very useful. And I love the super clean interface.

    Jono Buchanan gives a rave review: "The care and detail at the heart of AEON's libraries certainly unite them, yet AEON Melodic and AEON Rhythmic are different beasts. I initially expected that AEON Rhythmic would simply generate arpeggiated and sequenced versions of AEON Melodic's programs, but the Rhythmic library has a completely independent personality. As a result, the libraries complement each other beautifully and will appeal to sound designers, composers and producers alike."
