Chroma Bells is a collection of 12 tuned steel, brass and bronze hand bells from England, India, China and Tibet.

Each one has a distinct brightly or darkly resonant character, providing an awesome variety to fit any arrangement.

They're great for creating full melodic compositions, accenting percussive arrangements or even as pure sound effects.

We recorded single-note rings, sustaining rolls and special muted articulations, each captured with extensive velocity-layering and round robin variations for exceptionally dynamic natural playability and beautiful acoustic realism.

There are three stereo microphone positions that you can freely mix and layer.

You'll find our classic ultra-close pair of large-diaphragm studio mics for dry, crisp and strongly present tonality.

There's also a wide-spaced overhead pair of pencil omnis for a spacious room sound.

Lastly, just for fun, we've used a pair of very rustic tin can microphones that offer a raw, yet somehow smooth mid-century vintage lo-fi flavor with a warm mid-range, dark tone and rounded transients.


The Kontakt interface includes a suite of automation-ready sound-shaping controls to give you total creative flexibility.

You have control over swell, attack, release, offset, vibrato, filter, pitch (coarse & fine), articulation switching, cross-fading and layering, and so much more.

This library comes with an adaptable LFO system, with selectable LFO shape, modulation target parameter, speed, intensity, tempo-syncing and fade-in time.

You can also apply your choice of 12 lowpass, high-pass and FX filters, with assignable modulation targets such as velocity, mod wheel, expression, after-touch, key position and step-sequencer table control.

Our customizable arpeggiator offers a velocity table and control over arp direction, timing, swing, randomization and duration.

We've included a key and scale lock system to constrain your notes to common scales and keys for easy melodic composition and live performance.

The interface is rounded-out by our modular FX rack panel, with 27 different DSP effect modules that you can assign in any of 8 available slots, in any order that you wish.

You'll find classic phaser, flanger, delay, distortion, amp and cab simulators, compressors, EQ, rotator and so much more.

The Reverb effect includes our favorite convolution reverb impulse responses, including 99 different rooms, halls, chambers and outdoor environments, plus another 40 custom FX impulses to radically transform the sound and open up whole new worlds of musical possibility.

We've added a great bank of FX rack chain factory presets to get you started!
