From Lyrical and expressive to dark and aggressive, AEON Melodic gives you 25 GB (12.86GB on disk) of organic and synth melodic instruments, arpeggiated instruments and epic One-Shots.
This unique collection combines traditional, ethnic, and orchestral instruments with searing synths and edgy samples, all created with Heavyocity´s signature quality.
Twist, Punish, Effect
Globally affect the preset with one of the 4 Master FX (Delay, Mod, Drive, and Convolution). You have control over four effect-specific parameters (like effect amount, rate, size, or depth).
Dial in the aggression with the signature “Punish” Knob, a combination of saturation, distortion, and compression. Or, modulate the shape of the sound with the new “Twist” knob.
Master Your Sound
AEON’S user interface was designed FOR composers and sound designers BY composers and sound designers, providing simple, intuitive ways to alter the sounds without leaving the interface.
Similar to DAMAGE, three levels of effects are intrinsically bound to the Melodic and Rhythmic Components — apply effects globally, engage the Advanced Trigger-FX, or tweak individual sounds.
The sound of AEON comes from a combination of deeply sampled Organic Instruments, Racks of Analog Modular Synths and Fx, and an advance arsenal of FX all housed in the Engine. All of the instruments and arpeggiated presets are designed to complement one another, and are split up into Organic, Organic Arp, Synth, Synth Arp, Hybrid, and the Signature Aeon Hits.
AEON offers over 130 multi-sampled melodic instruments and 80+ Synths and Basses (ranging from pristine and ethereal to punchy and aggressive). Sculpt your tone with per-channel Tune, Pan, Level, and EQs or add sizzle and punch with the 4-band Master EQ. New in AEON is the ability to control the modulation of filters with an envelope or LFO. Alter the amount and rate of an LFO, or trigger the Filter with an ADSR envelope.
The tonal sister of the signature ´Damage Hits´, The unique ´AEON Hits´ consist of complex melodic one-shot impacts. Perfect for adding an epic quality to your track.
AEON´s advanced arpeggiator allows for composition of melodic and rhythmic phrases. Load one of the 5 factory presets, or save your own for use in any preset. You have full control over step amount and can adjust time signature, note subdivision (straight or triplet), individual note duration, pitch, and velocity.
There are also controls for retrigger, glide, poly/mono, octave randomizing, and playback type (chord, pairs, etc). It includes 8 fully customizable and linkable patterns per preset to create long and intricate melodic phrases (up to 128 steps).
Three levels of effects are intrinsically bound to the presets - apply effects globally, trigger performance effects, or tweak individual sounds.
Master Effects control distortion, reverb, delay, and modulation.
The Advanced Trigger FX (pictured here) are switchable real-time effects with incredible scope for intuitive, creative sound-tweaking. Control the attack and decay of each triggered effect, or turn on the sequence, and modulate the effect in time.The Punish and Twist knobs preside over everything, adding signature drive and character.

Instruments ranging from Tuned Cowbells and Upright Bass to pristine Crotales and Harps provide you with a vast range of timbres at your fingertips
AEON provides a vast range of sampled material including a number of unique ensembles. Performed in unison, these ensembles were made up of instruments like Tuned Dinner Bells, Stringed Oil Cans, and Plucked Guitar.
Pure Analog Synth
For AEON, Heavyocity captured true analog fatness from a combination of modular analog synth rigs. Carefully crafted, tuned, and tracked, these sounds range from serene to horrifically aggressive.

"AEON is a welcome addition to my studio´s sound library. There´s a really nice organic essence to the sounds, plus the tweakability of the interface gives even more scope to do something different "
"Clash of the Titans", "Fright Night", "Game of Thrones", "Iron Man"
"Heavyocity continues to offer the most innovative and dynamic sounds. Both AEON Rhythmic and AEON Melodic are creative, inspiring, and will provide a unique sound to any music project."
"Command and Conquer", "Dead Space", "F.E.A.R."
"I really love the multi-sampled organic patches - truly original sounds that inspire new ideas with a few notes. Seriously, though…you guys are making it WAY TOO EASY to sound like a synth programming maestro. Aeon is so tweakable and easy to make your own. And man, what a sound! I´ve never heard synths that sit so well in my mixes without touching a thing - full and fat without taking up too much space. I hate that it´s getting released to the public…can´t we keep this one between us?"
"Battleship", "Desperate Housewives", "Gangster Squad", "Transformers", "Transformers" (3 films)
"I knew in about two minutes that Aeon would be welcomed with open arms into my studio. "This thing is awesome!" was the initial reaction. The sounds are really well done, very creative and very useful. And I love the super clean interface. You can easily tweak the sounds and mold them into what you need, without getting lost in a sea of pages and menus. It´s all very accessible and integrates right into the workflow. Thank you team Heavyocity."
"Galaxy Quest", "Ice Age", "Serenity", "The Sandlot"
"I love the Aeon Melodic library, and it´s so easy to use and program. When I am writing I just want stuff to "work". "Advanced Performance Options" allow me to explore very contemporary soundscapes which is great in augmenting live musicians and orchestra. I love how easy it is to use. The sounds seem to fit seamlessly into my orchestrations. Great Work!!"
"The Warrior´s Way", Oscar-Nominated Composer
"AEON does to melody and harmony what Evolve and DAMAGE did to percussion, loops and fx. It provides a great repertoire of sounds and sequences for scoring, using a clear and clever interface and the right tools to bring life to your track. The quality is outstanding, the choices are always edgy and perfectly contemporary. I hope it will be followed by more products like this one. The more you will use it the more you will love it..."
