CHROMA+ is a highly customizable stereo / dual mono tracking and mixing channel designed for modern hybrid studios that want more results in less space. CHROMA+ utilizes Louder Than Liftoff’s celebrated Twin Tone-Amp™ architecture and Tone Shaping EQ, derived from the very circuits used in the acclaimed Silver Bullet. Answering the call for flexibility and customization, CHROMA+ delivers with its twin topology (A or N) line processor and mic/instrument amp, and adds an exciting twist - an analog plugin slot in each channel accepting Colour Modules. This feature allows additional processing like tube saturation, compression, or additional EQ bands to be inserted into the signal path and mixed with CHROMA+’s classic 'A' or 'N' inspired MOJO Amps for the ultimate in front and back end versatility. There’s even a Mega Mono Mode for cascading the full arsenal of CHROMA+ into a 4-stage channel strip.

BUS PROCESSOR AND MIC/INSTRUMENT PREAMP IN ONE
CHROMA+ is designed for ultimate versatility with hybrid workflows in mind just like its big brother, the Silver Bullet. These days gear needs to deliver results on both the front end and the back end. Featuring LINE, DI, and MIC modes, CHROMA+ is both a line level processor for groups or mix bus, and a preamp for instrument and mic level sources.

FEATURES
• Mic or Mix/Line/Instrument mode
• Selectable ‘A’ and ‘N’ inspired MOJO Amps – same as in Silver Bullet
• 2x Colour-compatible analog plugin slots with Drive and Mix
• Auto-switching stereo DI inputs for Instruments with Retro mode
• Mega Mono channel mode (CH 1>2) feeds channel 1 output into channel 2 input
• Baxandall Tone Boost EQ with Vintage mode
• Custom American made transformers
• ROGUE FIVE discrete op amps designed by Louder Than Liftoff, conforming to standard 2520 footprint
• Signal present indicator and bi-directional meter
• Powered by new ultra-low noise Hypermatter PSU

APPLICATIONS
• Mix / 2-Bus mojo
• Mic preamp
• Stem / Bus processing
• Synth, guitar, or bass DI
• Tracking channel strip with compression, EQ, saturation depending on configuration

TWIN TONE-AMP™ ARCHITECTURE
At the heart of CHROMA are two Mojo Amps inspired by classic large format consoles – American (A), and British (N). These Mojo Amps lend their characteristic sonic footprints to any signal passing through the circuit. Like the Silver Bullet, CHROMA+ is the only processor of its kind that allows you to enable A or N sonics at the push of a button. Auditioning these two signature sounds during a session no longer requires re-patching or swapping preamps.

WORLD CLASS STEREO DI WITH RETRO MODE
A world class FET-input DI was developed for the front end of CHROMA+ offering superior definition, punch, and low-end girth for the capture of instrument level sources. It is capable of both stereo and dual mono operation and feeds the entire CHROMA signal path for full MOJO Amp coloration and Colour slot processing. A switchable RETRO Mode provides two distinct tonal personalities to the DI. An optional THRU mode can be set via an internal jumper.

MEGA MONO CHANNEL MODE (CH 1>2)
In addition to offering both stereo and dual mono operation, CHROMA+ is capable of becoming a Mega Mono channel to facilitate more creative processing chains. When the CH 1>2 switch is engaged, the output of channel 1 will feed into the input of channel 2 and put the power of two CHROMAs in series.

NEW HYPERMATTER POWER SUPPLY
This is the first product that features our brand-new PSU with Hypermatter technology. We spent the last year in research and development with one simple goal: to create a power delivery system with unparalleled noise, voltage regulation, and transient response performance. We are proud to introduce Hypermatter, a state-of-the-art power supply technology we believe to be truly fit for the demands of high-resolution audio . It renders dynamic sound with revealing detail, dimension, and gut-punching authority. The Hypermatter PSU architecture uses a 4-layer PCB, cutting edge LDO regulators, and nothing but the best components to bring CHROMA+ to life in ways that must be heard.

FOUR CONFIGURATIONS: STANDARD, TUBE, COMP, EQ
CHROMA+ is available in four versatile configurations to suit various workflows:

Tube: pre-loaded with 2x Pentode Mk2 Colour modules for tube mojo and 2-band Baxandall boost/cut
Comp: pre-loaded with 2x Implode Colour modules for classic 1176-style FET compression
EQ: pre-loaded with 2x FET Filter Colour modules for midrange cut and FET saturation
Standard: un-loaded Colour slots allowing for a la carte customization

CUSTOMIZE CHROMA+ WITH ANALOG PLUGINS
CHROMA+ allows you to expand its sonic versatility further and to create a custom channel strip by installing your choice of analog plugins called Colour modules. Just insert your favorite Colour Module into the slot (one per channel), adjust the drive (C-DRV), and blend (C-MIX) the processing with the dry signal to taste.
