Chromaphone is lovely sounding and pretty flexible. I do wish it had more modulation options... but that's the I want to push things to the limits part of me :)


Chromophone is one of my very favorites, amazing sounds. I also wish it had better modulation capabilities and that is just the "i want to embellish the sound a little bit" part of me (although, if it could i would also push it to the limits.) Even so, Chromo sits about the top of what i have (with the rest of the PM stuff, SS, Kaivo, LL, and some xoxos.) Oh, and dare i mention it? Tassman!

"Derailer is a physical modelling system with two basic elements. One is a metal bar that you can strike or bow. The other is a nonlinear mass/spring connection. This allows you to join two bars together so that vibrations from one create sympathetic resonance in the other. By connecting multiple bars you can create new instruments that have their own unique sound.

"There are 37 strike bars, 5 resonators, and up to 81 connections to play with. The adjustable physical parameters and nonlinearity of the connections produce a wide range of tonal variation that reacts to striking velocity or bowing pressure. Derailer uses finite-difference time-domain numerical modelling."

Looking forward to playing with SUMU from MadronaLabs (whatever it‘ll be)...

Wish i had Logic (and a Mac to run it on) so i could use Sculpture (and of course Alchemy 2).

I initially bought Logic just for Sculpture...

I absolutely agree with all of those. I might also add Physical Audio's PA3 Derailer (I'm still using their beta).

Do you have/use Derailer? If so, what do you think of it?

I'm using the beta version, which is not available for download any longer.
It has only two models (bow and strike) but it's got a lot of control parameters for the strike bars and resonators, it's great for abstract sounds. Turn up the nonlinearity for connections to each bar and you get an interactive cascade of strangeness.
The interface is very clean and intuitive once you get used to it.

Now i'm less patiently awaiting. :)
Seems awesome from that description.

Yeah but did you already have a Mac? If i did i would definitely do the same. Shame (but no surprise) apple doesn't want to share.

cool... look forward to trying it... the audio examples are interesting though it seems like they could use a damper module... everything is so ringy..y..y..y..y

Mainstage has also Sculpture and all the other MPE compatible instruments. It is so cheap, that, if you add a used Mac to the bill, it is still worth its money...;-)
