Applied Acoustics Systems has released an update for its Chromaphone 2 acoustic object synthesizer instrument for Windows and Mac.

Version 2.0.5 includes fixes and enhancements as well as a brand new Basics bank, containing initialization presets to help you create new sounds from a blank state.

Chromaphone is a synthesizer dedicated to the creation of acoustic instruments. It is based on the combination of acoustic resonators to create drums, percussion, string and hybrid synth-like instruments.

Membranes, bars, marimbas, plates, strings, and tubes form pairs that are excited by a mallet and a flexible noise source. Access to different parameters such as the material of the resonators, their tuning and hit position allow for the creation of a vast range of realistic and creative instruments and sonic colors.

The update is free and available now on AAS’ website.

Part of the holiday season sale, Chromaphone 2 (VST/AU/RTAS/AAX/Standalone) is on sale at $99 USD until January 22nd, 2018 (50% off regular).
