Applied Acoustics Systems has announced the release of a sound pack by AAS newcomer Michel Basque, a Canadian artist, music composer and sound designer.

Transmutation is a collection of 101 presets for the popular Chromaphone 3 synthesizer instrument.

The sound pack includes basses, drums and percussion, keys, bells, chimes, mallets, guitars, pads, textures, plucks, leads, and more.

Basque approaches sounds as instruments by themselves with great attention to details, playability, and balance. Real instruments are evoked with fresh creative twists—crystalline mallets and bells, futuristic neo-classical keys, exotic and hybrid acoustic strings, filmic guitars, and gritty mutant pads abound. From all times and places—exotic, traditional, electronic—this miscellanea balances real and surreal textures with a strong lively quality that captures the prominent essence of Chromaphone 3.

While ideal for cinematic climaxes or otherworldly soundscapes production, more conventional creations benefit from a very organic boost of intensity and emotion. Transmutation sonically reflects on a world in the throes of profound changes, a rapidly mutating ecosystem transforming us all.

Transmutation runs in Chromaphone 3 and the free AAS Player virtual instrument (VST, AU, RTAS, AAX, NKS, standalone). It is available for the intro price of $19 USD.

In celebration of the new sound pack, all Chromaphone 3 products are available at a 50% discount for a limited time.

  • Chromaphone 3 +PACKS (includes 15 sound packs): $189 USD.
  • Chromaphone 3 acoustic object synthesizer: $99 USD.

The offer is available at Applied Acoustics Systems and distributor Plugin Boutique until March 9th, 2021.
