Applied Acoustics Systems releases Chromaphone 2 Acoustic Object Synthesizer Plug-in

Applied Acoustics Systems

Applied Acoustics Systems has announced the official release of an all-new version of its Chromaphone acoustic object synthesizer for Mac OS X and Windows.

Chromaphone 2 is a synthesizer which uses acoustic resonators to create drum, 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 expressive instruments in a vast range of sonic colours.

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 presets by artists and sound designers 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," says Philippe Dérogis, CTO of Applied Acoustics Systems. "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 full multi-effect module and an arpeggiator, which greatly expands its scope, but, most importantly, we have reviewed every module in order to give Chromaphone a sharper response and make it even more responsive and expressive."

Pricing and Availability

Chromaphone 2 is available now at a suggested retail price of US$199. Until April 11, 2016, it is offered at the introductory price of US$149. During this period, every purchase also includes the new Synbiosis sound bank by sound designer Daniel Stawczyk—an added US$39 value.

Chromaphone 2 runs on both Mac OS X and Windows in 32- and 64-bit host sequencers supporting the VST, Audio Units, RTAS, and AAX Native plug-in formats.
