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 analogue, FM, and physical modelling 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.
