Chromaphone 3 proudly showcases eight physically modelled acoustic resonators. Mix and match strings, plates, drumheads, membranes, beams, bars, and tubes to reproduce real-life instruments or create original ones. At the turn of a few knobs, become an instrument maker, shaping metal, carving wood, and stretching skins.
Chromaphone is the first synthesizer to take into account the effect of coupling between resonators. A proprietary technology precisely models the bidirectional nature of the energy flow between the resonators and how they interact thereby capturing key acoustic behaviours of musical instruments.
Chromaphone 3 now boasts four performance macros per layer that respond to user-defined MIDI controls. Each and every sound features modulation, timbre, envelope, and effect morphing assignments that can be played in real-time for enhanced expressivity and sonic dimension.
Chromaphone 3 ships with a completely new factory library of 420 sounds created by top sound designers. Michel Basque, Christian Halten, Jerry Kovarsky, Christian Laffitte, Niall McCallum, Adam Pietruszko, Daniel Stawczyk, Sean Divine, and Venus Theory form an incredible team that made the most of the latest Chromaphone 3 features. It’s with great pride that AAS present these new signature sounds.
