Ronnie Rekkerd shared his thoughts today on Applied Acoustics Systems’ Chromaphone physical modeling synthesizer:
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.
Needless to say, Chromaphone is a fantastic synthesizer for cinematic, soundtrack type works. It will likely suit many electronic music producers as well, especially in the area of ambient, minimal, and idm genres.
Chromaphone lets you combine ‘acoustic resonators’ to create drums, percussion, string, and synth-like instruments. The resonators’ material, tuning, and coupling parameters allow the creation of a wide range of instruments and sonic colors.
