SonusCore CHROMA Grand Piano


Vibrant • Profound • Eternal

CHROMA personifies the ageless beauty of the piano. Painstakingly recorded from a world class Yamaha C3, it fully captures the sonic exuberance of the ideal piano sound. It is not only the perfect recreation of the acoustic properties, but it is also a full exploration of the instrument. From the rich depth of the single note, to mallets, pads, and e-bow, rich and inspiring soundscapes – CHROMA is more than a piano, it is the experience of the piano itself

  • CHROMA is the new SONUSCORE flagship piano.
  • CHROMA offers 4 freely adjustable microphone positions.
  • CHROMA has an unique core engine that both recreates the piano’s original sonority, but also creates new and abstract soundscapes.
  • CHROMA comes with an adjustable velocity curve to match the dynamics to every piano keyboard.

A Piano For All Times

CHROMA is not only a high-quality go-to piano for even your most demanding orchestra needs, it is also an endless source for inspiration. With over 23 velocity layers and 8 round robins for mechanical sounds, CHROMA reflects the real piano sound closer than ever before. The recordings include palm mutes, brushes, mallets, e-bow, and chains – a full sonic exploration of the Yamaha C3 grand piano.

Choose Your Piano

Though CHROMA was recorded from a top-class Yamaha C3, Sonuscore developed it to shape the sound to any timbre you might need. With an adjustable velocity curve, the dynamic response can be matched to any keyboard. The sound can further be adjusted by attack, decay, delay, density, octavation, detune, sample-start, pan-randomizer and more.
