Two fresh drum patches from Resonantia in a 5-8 groove - Tin & Bass.
Until the weekend I should have finished collecting all patches (100 original patches plus approximately 20 variations), then a few more days of finalizing and writing the PDF, then release time. Any fence-sitters should pre-order soon if they want to save some cash.

Here is another video with 4 instances of Chromaphone 2, atmospheric, ambient, slightly surreal stuff.
All patches are done now, it'll take another few days for finalizing and describing them.

This set has now been released.

Image

Resonantia is a sonic universe in which the laws of physics apply and dissolve at the same time. This soundset explores the second version of Chromaphone in depth, making extensive use of the new resonator models, the updated FX section, the unison-mode and the arpeggiator.

Pushing the boundaries of consonance and dissonance, expressive chromatic percussion sounds and catchy plucks meet futuristic drones and otherworldly cinematic textures, edgy unison leads and punchy bass sounds clash with mellow pads and hybrid fantasy instruments, microtonal textures from a different world unite with hypnotic pads and ethnic percussion. A wide array of timbres suitable for a broad range of musical styles is waiting for the Chromaphone connoisseur.

As the Midi controller assignments for aftertouch and the modulation wheel can only be assigned globally in Chromaphone 2, many patch descriptions in the preset browser (and the patch list) contain suggestions for controller assignments, expanding the sonic possibilities of this unique instrument even more.

You can view/download the PDF for Modelled Reality with more details, the licence agreement and the patch list including playing tips and descriptions for each patch here.

Sound categories:
  • *Drums + Percussion (16 + 5 variations)
    *Keys - Bass - Leads - String (22 + 4 variations)
    *Mallets - Plucks - Bells (27 + 6 variations)
    *Pads + Drones (22 + 3 variations)
    *Textures (13 + 4 variations)
Delivery: Zipped e-mail attachment.
Price: € 22 EUR

NOTE: Resonantia requires the full version of Chromaphone. It does not work with the AAS Player.

Product page.

Demos:

All demos were produced entirely with Chromaphone 2 using only patches from Resonantia, no post-processing was applied apart from a limiter on the master output and some volume automation, if several instances of Chromaphone were used in a demo.

Chromaphone has always been my favourite synth, and I know it fairly well.
Yet I am convinced that I can learn quite a lot by analysing your patches.
And of course enjoy the sounds you created.

bought!

and thanks!

Thank you Erik, I've been having a blast with Chromaphone 2 over the last month, there is simply nothing like it out there. Limitations' are few, possibilities endless.
