As you maybe know already longer, I’m a big fan of the plugins from Applied Acoustics Systems and especially I love the Chromaphone 2 Synthesizer. It’s a lovely instrument based on physical modelling technology that can create stunning percussive sounds. This week, the company announced a new expansion for this great synth. Digital Sins is a new sound bank featuring 144 sounds for Chromaphone 2 and the free AAS Player. Sound designer of this new library is again Daniel Stawczyk who made already the great expansion Synbiosis which I reviewed some months ago.
Digital Sins forces Chromaphone 2’s acoustic object algorithms into a non-acoustic synthesizer world. The collection presents bright and ultra sharp sounds reminiscent of the classic digital synthesizer’s precision and presence. The 144 presets are categorized into basses, bells, keys, chords, synths, soundscapes, and effects.
“When Daniel Stawczyk dropped Digital Sins the whole office stopped. We found ourselves enthralled in this altered universe where Chromaphone 2 acted as a classic digital synthesizer, ” said Eric Thibeault, product designer at Applied Acoustics Systems, “The 144 presets definitely gave us a retro-futuristic vibe with focused, bright, metallic, and percussive sounds that we considered truly distinctive. It felt a bit unusual considering the intrinsic acoustic grain of Chromaphone 2. And we didn’t suspect we could indulge so much of the digital aesthetics with it. The excursion was a real treat.”
Digital Sins for Chromaphone 2 & the free AAS Player plugin (VST/AU/RTAS/AAX) is now on sale for $19 USD until September 5th, 2017. (regular $39 USD). For limited time, you can save up to 69% on the AAS plugins and sound banks.
