The 10 rules of pan
October 27, 2004
Unitonic today announced the release of Aurora, an advanced plug-in synth for Pro Tools|HD Accel systems.
Aurora offers sound synthesis with eight complex Tone Partials, each with built-in modulation and stereo panning, independent, multi-step envelopes for every parameter, and dynamic polyphony that permits voicing of 16 to 128 or more notes.
In addition to its sound generating capabilities, Aurora has a number of real-time dynamics features that open avenues of expression for musicians. Each parameter can have a separate value for the lowest and highest key velocity, so that the sound can transform dramatically - even the user-defined tunings can be affected by velocity. Other realtime features include MIDI controller mapping to specific partial parameters, which allows a player to manipulate fundamental aspects of a patch on the fly.
For a limited time, Unitonic will be offering Aurora at an introductory priceof $499 US through its online store. The official MSRP for Aurora is $699 US.
This initial release of Aurora supports Digidesign Pro Tools|HD Accel systems running Pro Tools 6.0 or newer on the Macintosh platform only. A PACE iLok USB Smart Key (purchased separately) and an iLok.com account are also required for licensing. An update supporting the Windows XP platform is scheduled for Q4 2004.
