Audio Damage AD057 Axon 3 v3.0.11 WIN/MAC VST3i, AAX, AUi, CLAP x64

A drum sequencer that thinks outside the box, where every beat is a live wire, sparkling and connecting,
to create a live rhythm. This Axon 3 is not just an update, but a complete overhaul of our legendary Axon series.
This isn’t your average drum machine, it’s a sonic adventure that blends the familiar with the futuristic.

At the heart of Axon 3 is a sequencer inspired by the complex workings of artificial neural networks. Imagine neurons buzzing with energy, transmitting triggers in a dance of precision and chaos. When a neuron reaches its firing threshold, it doesn’t just react: it sings using its internal synth voice, sends a pulse out into the MIDI universe, or both. The connections between these neurons are not random – they are the building blocks of a rhythm sequencer, the likes of which no one else has. And through the magic of probability, we’ve created a completely unique style of drum programming.
But that is not all.
Axon 3 wraps all of this rhythmic innovation into a sleek interface with a full mixer, crystal delay, powerful compressor, and multiple outputs. Whether you’re creating your next IDM masterpiece, scoring a film, or simply exploring new sonic territories, Axon 3 will be your co-pilot on this exciting journey into sound.
