With macros mapped to key sound characteristics—modulation, timbre, envelope, and effect—the Home view presents a distraction free and laidback browsing and tweaking experience.

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

Mix And Match Resonators

Chromaphone 3 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 abundance 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.

  • "Chromaphone 3 is a virtual instrument quite unlike any other, at least that I’m aware of. Chromaphone has long been a star in the AAS lineup. With version 3, it further secures its place as a virtual instrument of much consequence. I’m a big fan of C3 … a huge fan, to be honest. I think there’s a reasonable chance you will be as well."

  • "This is an incredible synth from AAS. On the face of it, calling it an acoustic object synthesiser doesn’t really give you a full picture, it can produce a huge range of sounds from traditional percussion sounds to chimes to completely unexpected ones like arps and organs."
