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 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 2 factory library by combining both familiar keyboard classics with utterly unique experimental textures.

Who is Francis Preve?

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.
