Octagon is sound designer Daniel Stawczyk’s second Sound Pack Series for Chromaphone 2. This time around he proposes a 148-preset collection of carefully designed arpeggiated layered sounds.

Sometimes pushing forward the richness of Chromaphone 2 to its full potential, but at others opting for depth, finesse, and refined delicacy. On Octagon, Daniel takes full advantage of the arpeggiator's density and intricacy. Packed with an inspiring cornucopia of arpeggiated synths, pads, basses, chords, stabs, flows, percussions, chimes, and angular special effects, Octagon unlocks your creativity at every turn.

Digital Sins Chromaphone 2 Sound Bank

Daniel Stawczyk dropped Digital Sins and everything stopped. We found ourselves enthralled in an altered universe where Chromaphone 2 acted as a classic digital synthesizer. The 144 presets definitely gave us a retro-futuristic vibe. We discovered 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.
