A complete video series of tutorials on Chromaphone 2
Learn about the modelling paradigm used in Chromaphone 2, and get a birds eye view of the three main views used to shape the sound.
Explore the different resonator types and materials, learn how to module their pitch, and see how to control various aspects of their tonal qualities.
The Mixer module is used to adjust the blend of the two sources—Mallet and Noise—that excite the resonators. Hear how the amplitude controls sound when modulated by key range, velocity, and LFO.
Explore the stiffness, noise, and color controls found in the Mallet module, and hear how modulating them via either key range or velocity influences the tonal characteristics of the mallet as it excites the resonators.
Explore various ways to use filtered white noise to excite the resonators. See how the dedicated envelope generator and LFO module is used to shape the onset of the noise.
Discover this dedicated pitch LFO and explore ways of creating both natural and unnatural sounding pitch oscillations. Learn to control the onset of the effect either manually, with the keyboard’s modulation wheel, or via dedicated delay and fade controls.
Learn how to use these parameters to stack voices for a thick rich sounding layered effect.
Discover how held or sustained notes are played sequentially rather than as chords, and how to create rhythmic sequences that incorporate rests and odd numbers of steps.
Explore the multiple on board effects available in AAS instruments, and hear how they are used to shape the final stages of a sounds output.
Learn to save modified AAS Instrument programs, and manage, modify, restore, and share banks.
Explore the world of MIDI hardware control. See how to map physical knobs and sliders to on screen parameters, how to set minimum and maximum ranges, and how to save MIDI Maps of your assignments.
Hear what some of Chromaphone 2’s presets sound like, and see how easy it is to change their tonal qualities with a few simple tweaks.
Discover how some simple parameter tweaks can create either subtle or dramatic variations of Chromaphone 2 presets.
