Applied Acoustics Systems has released version 1.0.6 of its Chromaphone creative percussion synthesizer instrument for Windows and Mac.

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. The resonators’ material, tuning, and coupling parameters allow the creation of a wide range of instruments and sonic colors. Whether real, innovative, or with an ethnic touch, Chromaphone will fill your music with rich and organic tones.

    • Pro Tools 10, 11 AAX Native plug-in support.

  • Notes
