Chromaphone uses the entire keyboard range to modulate volume, mallet noise and stiffness, noise filter frequency and density, hit position, and coupling to open a whole world of expressive sounds—and that in a totally stepless fashion.
Creative drum kits Chromaphone ships with ready-made creative kit patches where each note provides a new sound slightly different from the previous one. Over the entire keyboard range the sound morphs from bass drum to snare to hi-hat.

Mix and match Chromaphone is an atelier for musicians and producers. At the turn of a few knobs, become an instrument maker, shaping metal, carving wood, and stretching skins. Craft and play expressive and responsive instruments that have a real-life presence. Resonate Instruments are created by combining acoustic resonators. A wooden bar makes a xylophone, turned metallic it becomes a glockenspiel.
Adding a tube transforms it into a vibraphone or marimba. Plates shape up in bells and cymbals. Greg Lynn Folding In Architecture Pdf Free. A drumhead combined with a cylinder becomes a bass drum, snare, conga or bongo. Mix and match strings, plates, drumheads, membranes, beams, bars, and tubes to reproduce real-life instruments or create original ones.
Perfect couples Chromaphone is the first synthesizer that takes into account the effect of coupling between resonators. Bringing together acoustic objects, for exemple the string and soundboard at the bridge of a guitar, changes the way each of them vibrates. Elementary Fluid Dynamics Acheson Pdf Creator. A proprietary technology models precisely how objects interact and exchange energy thereby capturing key acoustic behaviours of musical instruments and resulting in sounds that have a real-life presence. The perfect stroke Shape the attack with the Mallet module which provides the triggering impact.
Use the Amplitude and Stiffness controls to craft different type of sticks, mallets, and beaters, and the Noise parameter to bring texture to the hit. All can be modulated by keyboard velocity and pitch to provide great playing dynamics. Get noisy Sustain is provided by a flexible noise source. An envelope generator and filters provide tailored excitation to complement impacts from the mallet.
A density parameter controls the rate at which noise samples interact with the resonators from random individual particule-like hits to a fully continuous flow. Loud or quiet, bursting or evolving, dense or porous, broadband or filtered, this noise source is the key to unusual and creative effects.

Buzzing Around The community has good things to say about Chromaphone • Extremely flexible and powerful The math behind this is very complex, but Applied Acoustics Systems has done an amazing job of completely hiding the complexity to create an extremely flexible and powerful instrument that's both fun and easy to use—and that’s quite a feat! • Knockout All in all, Chromaphone 2 is a knockout example of physical modeling, wrapped in an interface that is remarkably easy to understand.
The most intuitive physical modeling synth to date. • MusicTech Excellence award—10/10 The depth and roundness of the more percussive categories is incredible, and because all of the sounds are completely synthesized without samples or wavetables you won't get any machine-gun effects during fast rolls and so on. Liam O'Mullane, Music Tech • Wonderfully dynamic—9/10 With its physical modeling, Chromaphone produces wonderfully dynamic, expressive sounds.
Experimenting pays off, as just the turn of a knob or two can yield completely different, unique sounds. • Novel and clever Download the trial version—you'll find a novel, clever instrument that makes sounds your other virtual intruments don't make.
• Amazing variety of timbres It creates an amazing variety of timbres: anything from the tiny plink of a short, taut string to the massive roar of a giant detuned gong, and all points in between. It's hard to think of another software instrument which is quite so versatile. WINDOWS MAC OS X 32-/64-bit VST AU RTAS AAX Native NKS STANDALONE Chromaphone 2 is compatible with nearly all DAWs.
