Creative Percussion Synthesizer
Chromaphone 2 is a synthesizer which uses acoustic resonators to create drums, percussion, mallet, string, and other unique instruments. Drumheads, bars, marimbas, plates, strings, and tubes are combined into pairs and played by a configurable mallet and a flexible noise source.
A proprietary coupling technology, which models precisely how vibrating objects interact and influence each other, captures key acoustic behaviours of musical instruments resulting in a library of truly expressive instruments in a vast range of sonic colors.
Chromaphone 2 ships with a new streamlined interface, a new equalizer and compressor module, a new multi-effect processor, a new drumhead resonator, and more. The factory library has been completely redesigned and includes signature presets by artist and sound designer Sean Divine, Thiago Pinheiro, Daniel Stawczyk, and Christian Laffitte.
There is nothing quite like Chromaphone with its mix of acoustic modeling and synth-like features. Its sonic palette is remarkable and it reproduces the feel and responsiveness of real-life acoustic instrument.
With this new version, Chromaphone now benefits from a a full multi-effect module and an arpeggiator which greatly expands its scope but most importantly we have reviewed every module in order to endow Chromaphone with a sharper response and make it even more responsive and expressive.
