Applied Acoustics Systems has updated its Chromaphone creative percussion synthesizer for Windows and Mac to version 1.0.3.

Chromaphone combines acoustic resonators to create drums, percussion, string, and synth-like instruments. Membranes, bars, marimbas, plates, strings, and tubes form pairs that get sparked into life by a mallet and a flexible noise source.

Changes in Chromaphone v1.0.3

  • Fixed initialization problem (VU meter in the red, no sound).
  • Fixed crash on Cubase 6 64-bit project change on Mac OS X.
  • Fixed slow preset changes in Studio One on Mac OS X.

Chromaphone for Windows and Mac (VST/AU) is available to purchase for $199 USD.
