Chromaphone is a Percussion Synthesizer that combines acoustic resonators to create drums, percussion, mallet, string, and synth-like instruments. At the user's fingertips are drum skins, bars, marimbas, plates, strings, and tubes that get sparked into life by a mallet and a flexible noise source.

With Chromaphone, AAS has introduced a coupling technology that models how vibrating objects interact. Resonators are not passive any more, they now move and influence each other dynamically capturing key acoustic behaviours. The result is a library of vivid and expressive instruments with unmatched acoustic precision, sharpness, and real-life presence.

Highlights:

  • Entirely based on physical modeling for outstanding sound quality.
  • Top quality preset library.
  • Real time calculation of sound—no samples.
  • 32?bit floating point internal processing.
  • Sample rates up to 192?kHz.
  • Easy sharing of presets.
  • Unlimited undo/redo capability.
  • Standard plug-in formats support.
  • MIDI program change support.
  • High quality integrated master effects: chorus, delay, and reverb.
  • Host tempo synchronization.
  • Dynamic voice allocation and CPU overhead protection.

Oh yes this physical modelling synth is astounding.

I use it on almost every project since I got it exactly one year ago!

Sometimes when I feel it's not natural enough or want to make more textured sounds I layer it with real acoustic sounds and the results are amazing. The combination of pseudo-real with real acoustic sounds really really good.

Also it can make really really nice kicks snares hihats etc for dance music and beyond.

One of the best deals in audioland!

I agree! This is an amazing synth! The guys over at Applied are helpful and fantastic too! I had the pleasure of doing a demo for them last year using this plugin and I was amazed at how user friendly it is.
