Soundscaping the Future

Aura: Atmospheric Drone Builder is an inspiring sound design tool that eliminates all barriers to your creativity. Seamlessly blend four separate sound engines with a central X/Y pad for continually evolving dynamics and feeling. Choose from twenty-three separate effects. Modulate ten of these effects with LFOs and step sequencers to create unique performances. Get started quickly with over 100 inspiring presets. In addition to being an incredible library of sounds, Aura is also a powerful tool to use with your own samples!

Four engines. One dynamic sound.

With Aura’s central X/Y pad you can score in real-time to create compelling movement. Automate this realtime movement by recording the X/Y pad movement. Use your mouse or any external MIDI controller to control the X/Y pad.

Use Your Own Sounds

Drag any WAV or AIFF file to one of the four engines and use the power of Aura with your own library of sounds. From there, customize the sample start, loop points, and keyboard mapping.

Over 100 Professionally Designed Presets

Aura features over one hundred professionally designed presets that serve as inspirational starting points so you can spend more time making music and less time searching for sounds.

Modulatable Effects

Choose from ten effects to modulate and apply them to any engine on the fly with key triggers. From controlling distortion with an LFO to running multi-bandpass through a step sequencer, the creative possibilities are endless.

Komplete Kontrol & Maschine Integration

Aura: Atmospheric Drone Builder has been designed for seamless integration with KOMPLETE KONTROL S-Series and Maschine, offering you a unique hands-on experience. Manipulate Aura's interface using the controls of all NKS compatible hardware.
