Black and white film also works better with Auricon sound for the
simple reason that you develop the whole film in black and white. The
sound track has to be high contrast black and white, and the color
developer may not give a great result. But sometimes it can be
interesting, I think Jim Hubbard showed some Roger Jacoby films done
this way.
