SOLIDS

CHROMAPHONE 2 SOUND PACK

by FRANCIS PREVE

Solids

What's included with my purchase?

This preset collection can be used with the free AAS Player plug-in as well as the Chromaphone 2 acoustic object synthesizer.


Developed by renowned sound designer Francis Preve of Symplesound, Solids presents a preset collection that demonstrates the sonic versatility of Chromaphone 2. The wide range of sounds runs the gamut of essential house organs and electric pianos to cinematic textures that shimmer and evolve. A variety of electric guitar and plucked string elements as well as an array of hyper-realistic bells and chimes also augment the set.

At times, Solids blurs the line between analog, FM, and physical modeling with punchy basses, delicate plucks, and ethereal pads—perfectly suited for synthwave and soundtrack productions. These 101 patches complement beautifully the original Chromaphone 2 factory library by combining both familiar keyboard classics with utterly unique experimental textures.

Who’s Francis Preve?

For over 20 years, Francis Preve has been intimately involved with every aspect of synthesis. From his legendary preset work for companies including Ableton, Dave Smith Instruments, Korg, Xfer Records, and Roland to iconic club hits as a DJ/producer. As a college professor and journalist, Preve thoroughly understands the specifics of sound design at a quantum level.
