Patchpool has released Resonantia, a soundset by Simon Stockhausen featuring 100 original patches and 22 variations for the Chromaphone 2 synthesizer by Applied Acoustics Systems.
Resonantia is a sonic universe in which the laws of physics apply and dissolve at the same time. This soundset explores the second version of Chromaphone in depth, making extensive use of the new resonator models, the updated FX section, the unison-mode and the arpeggiator. Pushing the boundaries of consonance and dissonance, expressive chromatic percussion sounds and catchy plucks meet futuristic drones and otherworldly cinematic textures, edgy unison leads and punchy bass sounds clash with mellow pads and hybrid fantasy instruments, microtonal textures from a different world unite with hypnotic pads and ethnic percussion. A wide array of timbres suitable for a broad range of musical styles is waiting for the Chromaphone connoisseur.
As the Midi controller assignments for aftertouch and the modulation wheel can only be assigned globally in Chromaphone 2, many patch descriptions in the preset browser (and the patchlist) contain suggestions for controller assignments, expanding the sonic possibilities of this unique instrument even more.
