§ Jump right in §

With Packs, Sounds, Categories, and Creators views, Chromaphone 3’s brand-new browser offers an efficient way to home in on the sounds you’re looking for.

§ Two-voice Multitimbral §

Chromaphone 3 combines two independent timbres—stacked or split—to create performance-friendly, texture-full, and spacious sounds that are sure to make a good impression.

§ Resonators—the heart of object synthesis §

Chromaphone 3 proudly showcases eight physically modeled acoustic resonators. Mix and match strings, plates, drumheads, membranes, beams, bars, and tubes to reproduce real-life instruments or create original ones. At the turn of a few knobs, become an instrument maker, shaping metal, carving wood, and stretching skins.

§ Mix and match resonators §

Chromaphone is the first synthesizer to take into account the effect of coupling between resonators. A proprietary technology precisely models the bidirectional nature of the energy flow between the resonators and how they interact thereby capturing key acoustic behaviours of musical instruments.

§ Multi-effect galore §

Chromaphone 3 holds an abondance of effects in three independent racks. Reverb, delay, distortion, phaser, chorus, flanger, filters, equalizer, compressor, guitar amplifier, tremolo—all assist in putting the final touch on a sound.

§ Per sound MIDI-controlled variations §

Chromaphone 3 now boasts four performance macros per layer that respond to user-defined MIDI controls. Each and every sound features modulation, timbre, envelope, and effect morphing assignments that can be played in real time for enhanced expressivity and sonic dimension.

Amazing variety of timbres

It creates an amazing variety of timbres: anything from the tiny ‘plink’ of a short, taut string to the massive roar of a giant detuned gong, and all points in between. It's hard to think of another software instrument which is quite so versatile.
