Audio Damage Neuron FM Drum Synth Module (Sneak Preview)

Audio Damage has released a video sneak preview of their new Neuron Eurorack FM drum synthesis module.

In the official intro video, above, AD’s Chris Randall gives an overview of the Neuron, followed by ‘Captain Crazypatch’ audio demos. 

Here’s what AD has to say about the Neuron:

Neuron is an FM-based all-in-one drum voice module suitable for all types of electronic music. From big Autechre-style FM hits to huge digital hardcore kicks to tight x0x snare drums, Neuron can make a broad range of percussion sounds with ease.

Starting with super fast envelopes internally curved for percussion sounds, we add a carrier wave that is a single-cycle sample straight from the PCB of a 909’s kick oscillator. We then add pure sine modulation, analog-modelled soft saturation, digital distortion, and a true random-number-generator for white noise.

The result is a drum module that is both easy to use and incredibly versatile. Watch the overview video below to get an idea of what Neuron sounds like.

The Audio Damage Neuron is expected to be priced at US $325. Availability is to be announced.

One thought on “Audio Damage Neuron FM Drum Synth Module (Sneak Preview)

  1. I’m a huge fan of FM drum synthesis, but this seems a little low on the features/price point. Considering this is a digital DSP module anyway, why not expand the range of waveforms?
