Chromophone by Applied Acoustics Systems is the biggest little plugin I ever tried. Applied Acoustics Systems calls it a "percussive synth," but I have discovered that it can do much, much more! As promised, it shines when creating percussive sounds, but surprisingly, it is capable of lovely strings, pads, and ambient sounds (soundscapes, pads, textures, etc). By turning a few knobs I have created some fantastic ambient Wah Wahs that add a hypnotic pulse to my tracks. The sound is fantastic — expressive, crisp, clear, and pleasing to the ear. Chromophone is a joy to launch. It's also very light on CPU usage, which is always a good thing. I highly recommend this plugin to any electronic musician, regardless of genre!

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.
