What Do I Think About Chromaphone 2
I’ve been using Chromaphone 2 for over a year now and love it for a few reasons. First, it’s really intuitive to edit the presets and come up with really interesting creative variations. Secondly and more importantly, it stretches my imaginations by making it so easy to come up with unusual combinations of resonators and impact generators.
The noise generator combined with the filters and the mallet controls generate such a wide variety of impact colours that a huge range of creative expression is available. I think of it as “hyper-real”. The sounds that are being modelled can be pushed way beyond their acoustic limits in really interesting ways. And not just for sound design, but for nice rich sounding very playable musical instruments.
What Is Chromaphone 2
Chromaphone is a software instrument based on the modelling of acoustic resonators to create drums, percussion, string and hybrid synth-like instruments. Membranes, bars, marimbas, plates, strings, and tubes form pairs that are excited by a mallet and a flexible noise source. Access to different parameters such as the material of the resonators, their tuning, and hit position allows for the creation of a vast range of realistic and creative instruments and sonic colours.
Chromaphone 2 is a plug-in compatible with nearly all DAWs and works as a stand-alone instrument as well. It supports - WINDOWS · MAC OS X · 32-/64-BIT VST · AU · RTAS · AAX NATIVE · NKS · STANDALONE.
- The factory library contains over 650 sounds spread out over 19 categories. The additional eight sound banks in this special offer add another 800 fresh new stimulating and creatively programmed presets.
- Performance features like tap tempo, unison, vibrato, MIDI control, and arpeggiator.
- Flexible LFO modulation routable to control all important resonator and sound-shaping parameters.
- Full ADSR envelope editing and control
- Control the modelled properties of mallets, resonators, and noise generators.
- Great sounding built-in effects including an equalizer, compressor, multi-effects modules (delay, distortion, chorus, flanger, phaser, wah wah, auto wah, tremolo, and notch filter), and reverb.
What’s New In Chromaphone 2
- This new model reproduces precisely how a real drumhead vibrates resulting in super realistic and responsive drums and percussion.
- The envelope generator for the noise source is now equipped with an AHD mode for carving precise one-shots.
- The noise source spectrum can now be tailored with a 10-band filter bank for fine control of the tone.
- Resonators have been complemented with a low-cut filter to control the clarity of an instrument response.
- Add motion and give a new perspective to sounds with the new built-in arpeggiator module.
- Fine control of the mallet and noise sources to shape the attack and sustain phase of sounds with precision.
- The new output limiter protects your ears and monitors during experimentation with the synth’s parameters while providing a maximum of distortion-free dynamics.
- Chromaphone 2 now supports the Scala scale file format for micro-tonal music making.
