Audio Nebula releases Aurora FM v1.0

Audio Nebula

Audio Nebula has announced the release of a major evolution of Aurora FM with v1.0, featuring the following improvements:


  • 4-part multi-timbral, with per-part channel, key range, voice count, level (moddable), and mute.
  • 1x-4x oversampling (per-part).
  • 65 different operator waveforms (13 base waveforms x 5 variants, plus polarity) (up from previous 8 total waveforms), and waveform depth (moddable).
  • 42 algorithms (up from 32), now sorted logically by ascending number of carriers.
  • New modulation destinations (Operator 1-6 Waveform Depth, Part Level, Reverb Send Amount), modulation sources (Note On/Off/Both Random, Key Exp, Vel On/Off/Both), and 3 modulation polarities.
  • Totally new bank/patch/part management integrating patch banks (new), patches, parts, and Yamaha SysEx, with concurrent state for all in-flight edits, and drag and drop bank/patch management. Now you can easily arrange your patches into subdirectories or bank files, for better organization or convenient sharing.


  • Massive performance improvements, with new AVX and AVX2+FMA operating modes, in addition to the original SSE2-only support, and other meticulous performance improvements throughout.
  • Increase to 40 voices, up from 30.
  • 9 envelope slopes, up from 3.
  • Increase to 4 unison voices, up from 3.
  • Changes to the mod matrix to support the new mod destinations. There are 11 mod routing slots for any destination, and you can stack multiple sources to the same destination.
  • Reverb effect has been slightly improved and is now patch-based and independently fed by the Parts (per-part reverb send level, pre/post fader, moddable).
  • Ping-pong mode added to delay.
  • More flexible portamento, with option of Rate (time per octave), fixed Time, or tempo-Sync time.
  • Improved appearances and a new "Winter Ions" theme with a different, "frostier" color palette.
  • Greatly improved the ability to select an envelope point if several points are overlapping or close together.
  • More functional and consistent use of modifier keys for controls.
  • Improved randomization.
  • Slightly improved Yamaha sysex translation.
  • Better resiliency to corrupted / invalid sysex and patches.

Plus, some bug fixes, sonic improvements, and important accessibility additions for the visually impaired.

Price: $32 CDN and a free update for existing customers.
