by FRANCIS PREVE
This sound collection from renowned sound designer Francis Preve, blurs the line between analog, FM, and physical modeling.
Developed by renowned sound designer Francis Preve of Symplesound, Solids presents a preset collection that demonstrates the sonic versatility of Chromaphone. 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 guitars 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 factory library by combining both familiar keyboard classics with utterly unique experimental textures.
Compatible with Chromaphone 3, Chromaphone 2, and the free AAS Player. Created with Chromaphone 2, but remastered for Chromaphone 3 with added performance macros.
Solids was created with the Chromaphone 3 acoustic object synthesizer. You can obviously play and edit the sounds in Chromaphone 3, but you can also access and play them via the free AAS Player plugin included with your purchase.
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. Read more
