Axon is an FM plug-in instrument with a "Neuron Sequencer". Triggering 7 percussion-tuned FM voices, the Neuron Sequencer, loosely adapted from the concept of Artificial Neural Networks, easily creates rhythms and patterns unheard of in modern electronic music. With on-board effects and mixing, and full MIDI I/O capabilities (in the VST version only) Axon drops right in to any production environment.

Axon's hex-based Neuron Sequencer revolves around seven Neurons, which can be interconnected in virtually limitless ways to trigger each other, the internal voices, and external synths and samplers. The results can be unpredictable, but are not random. The purpose of the Neuron Sequencer is to get away from grid pattern generation and to explore longer, less repetitive rhythm patterns. The sequencer can drive external synths and drum machines as well as its seven internal FM percussion voices.

Axon Features:

  • All new Neuron Sequencer, a seven-node hexagonal counter sequencer.
  • Seven FM percussion-tuned voices, also capable of melodic expression.
  • Unique FM and Ring Mod busses for global FM and Ring Mod.
  • Full MIDI output control (VST only) for driving external synths, drum machines, and samplers.
  • Full internal mixer that also controls MIDI output velocity, with solo and muting.
  • Internal stereo delay, taken from the best of Audio Damage's delay algorithms, with low- and high-pass filters and a playable feedback control.
  • Full MIDI Learn mode, for external hardware control of all Axon parameters.

An interesting plugin instrument for relatively little money. It can do percussive and melodic things, although by it's nature rhythmic/percussive things are what it does best. I'm not sure if it's genuinely a neural network under the hood or whether it is a complex Euclidean/Stochastic sequencer. There is a mixer with pan and effects for all the individual voices. It can be host tempo synced or run at an independent bpm. It's currently on version 2 now and sells for the same $'s. Download the demo if you're unsure. If it wasn't so niche it would have been a 5 star, maybe I'll change my mind.

PS It is Linux compatible too (as are a lot of the newer Audio Damage plugins. Including the interesting looking delay device Desert Cities).

I tested it on Linux (Mac OS is close I suppose), KVR doesn't allow that as an option in its review form.
