Chromaphone 2 is an extremely versatile piece of software capable of creating an amazing variety of timbers - from the tiny plink of a short, taut string to a massive roar of a giant gong - and everything in between. Chromaphone uses acoustic resonators to create drums, percussion, mallet, string, and other unique instruments. They get sparked into life by a mallet and a flexible noise generator. With more than 650 presets spread into 19 categories, Chromaphone 2 packs everything you need to create all the parts of your productions.

Chromaphone uses acoustic resonators to create drums, percussion, mallet, string, and other unique instruments. They get sparked into life by a mallet and a flexible noise generator.
The Play panel presents effect shortcuts and performance parameters as well as the genuinely apt arpeggiator.
The Edit panel combines acoustic modelling and classic synth controls
The Effects panel hosts the equalizer, compressor, multi-effect, and reverb modules.
Chromaphone 2 is packed with more than 650 presets from the best sound designers. Instruments span from warm and mellow pitched percussions for melodies to punchy one-shots and kits for rhythm tracks. Twisted, they generate unique textures and soundscapes that will move any film score. Whether real, other-wordly, or with an ethnic touch, Chromaphone will fill your music with rich and organic tones.
Chromaphone 2 ships with premium performance features: unison, vibrato, and a complete set of MIDI features. And for even more action, Chromaphone provides a user programmable pattern arpeggiator and shortcuts to the high quality effects.
Modeling based synthesis gives you access to all source and resonator parameters. Customize instruments to perfectly fit your project or follow your inspiration and build entirely new ones for really creative and innovative sound design.
The Effects panel wraps up Chromaphone 2 as an all-inclusive package with awesome polishing tools.
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.
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. 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.
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. 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.
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.
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.
Chromaphone 2 - What’s new?
Applied Acoustic Services have brought Chromaphone to a whole new level—it is now an incredibly versatile instrument.
The completely renewed factory library has well over 600 production-ready sounds classified for fast and intuitive exploration.
This new model reproduces precisely how a real drumhead vibrates resulting in super realistic and responsive drums and percussions.
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.
These new additions are perfect to add punch and definition to your sound, letting you cut through any dense mix or stage.
The new output limiter protects your ears and monitors during experimentation with the synth’s parameters while providing a maximum of distortion-free dynamics.
Redesigned from the ground up, the new interface now divides Chromaphone 2 into three panels: Play presents shortcuts to the performance and effect parameters including bypass switches for quick edits; Edit lets you tweak and create your sound; while FX supplies equalizer, compressor, multi-effect, and reverb processors for a final sheen.
Chromaphone 2 now supports the Scala scale file format for microtonal music making.
Reinvigorated and polished, Chromaphone 2’s multi-effect processor features our best sounding chorus, delay, phaser, flanger, distortion, notch filter, wah-wah, auto-wah, and reverb to date!
Simply copy your banks from Chromaphone 1 in Chromaphone 2‘s bank folder to convert them.
