Applied Acoustics Systems has released the Digital Sins, a new sound bank for the Chromaphone 2 synthesizer and AAS Player plug-ins in collaboration with sound designer Daniel Stawczyk.
Digital Sins forces Chromaphone 2's acoustic object algorithms into a non-acoustic synthesizer world. The collection presents bright and ultra sharp sounds reminiscent of the classic digital synthesizer's precision and presence. The 144 presets are categorized into basses, bells, keys, chords, synths, soundscapes, and effects.
"When Daniel Stawczyk dropped Digital Sins the whole office stopped. We found ourselves enthralled in this altered universe where Chromaphone 2 acted as a classic digital synthesizer, " said Eric Thibeault, product designer at Applied Acoustics Systems, "The 144 presets definitely gave us a retro-futuristic vibe with focused, bright, metallic, and percussive sounds that we considered truly distinctive. It felt a bit unusual considering the intrinsic acoustic grain of Chromaphone 2. And we didn't suspect we could indulge so much of the digital aesthetics with it. The excursion was a real treat."
Pricing and Availability
The Digital Sins sound bank is available now. Digital Sins is regularly priced at US$39 but until September 5, 2017, it is available at the introductory price of US$19.
The instant download delivery package includes both a Chromaphone 2 bank file and the free AAS Player plug-in. The AAS Player plug-in runs on both Windows and Mac OS X and supports the VST, Audio Units, AAX Native, and RTAS plug-in formats.
