Unique to Aurora 2.0 is the introduction of Noise Modulation into the synthesis chain. For the first time, noise can be used to fundamentally distort sound waves and quickly create extraordinarily rich tones, from subtle turbulence effects to fields of tunable, broadband noise. Aurora is the first synthesizer to offer this method of tone generation and
it promises whole new categories of sounds for performing musicians and sound designers alike.
Another class of features unique to Aurora 2.0 are the Parametric Sequencers for creating MIDI sync'd rhythms that directly control the output of the tone's main parameters. Each 32-step Sequencer has its own speed, loop point and lag-time, so they can run independently, even in separate time signatures for complex polyrhythms. The Parametric Sequencers can be used in countless ways to add distinctive, beat-based effects to specific aspects of a tone.
In addition to its new sound generation capabilities, Aurora v2.0 offers a redesigned and expanded visual interface, with multiple edit modes and richly detailed graphic displays.
