Patch into experimental sounds, complex patterns, and delightfully weird signal chains. It’s a world of audible geometry that plugs you into the past, present, and future all at once.

With everything from pristine tones to evolving percussive chitter, Achrome is a collection of carefully crafted and meticulously sampled modular patches. Made in collaboration with Berlin-based composer and sound designer Max Knoth, it connects figures, soundscapes, and patterns that hark back to the pioneering work of avant-garde electronic composers.

A möbius strip of past and future

A bridge between epochs, Achrome brings the ideas of pioneering electronic music composers into the present and opens doors to a bright future of synthesized sound possibilities. It puts a wide variety of chromatically-sampled patches at your fingertips, all with two layers of sound you can blend to taste using the mod wheel. Discover archetypal electronic sounds and aleatoric patterns inspired by the past, refined and recorded with contemporary expertise.

About the inspiration
About the inspiration
In great musical tradition, these are modular studies, examining and elaborating on the work of avant-garde composers like Karlheinz Stockhausen, Klaus Schulze, and Györgi Ligeti. These composers were not afraid to venture away from the conventional and dive into uncharted territory. Achrome takes this concept and runs with it, bringing experimental analog synthesis into the world of playable virtual instruments.
About Max Knoth
About Max Knoth
Max Knoth is a polymath: An engineer, arranger, orchestrator, sound designer, and composer who has worked with, among others, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Lou Reed, Danny Elfman, Rachel Portman, Alan Silvestri, and Carsten Nicolai. After discussing the concept for Achrome with Cornelius Duerst, the creator of the FABRIK series, Knoth created all the modular patches and sampled them at his studio in Berlin. The results are a mix of technical mastery, intentional sound design, and deliberate randomness.

Mic merging
