Veteran sound designer and music-tech journalist Francis Preve designed these 102 patches with a wide variety of sounds that show off Chromophone 2’s range.

Montreal, Quebec—May 22, 2018—Applied Acoustics Systems releases the Solids sound pack for the Chromaphone 2 and AAS Player plug-ins in collaboration with AAS newcomer sound designer Francis Preve of Symplesound. Solids joins the rank of Chromaphone’s sound pack series which now add up to 10 titles.

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 102 patches complement beautifully the original Chromaphone 2 factory library by combining both familiar keyboard classics with utterly unique experimental textures.
