Synthesizer

Phonec is best described as an 'analog flux synthesizer'. Inspired by the mystique of video logo synth scores from worn out VHS tapes, Phonec was primarily designed with character in mind. However Phonec is capable of producing a wide range of sounds such as vintage analogue tones, lo-fi synthscapes, ethereal pads, minimal techno sequences, and synthwave leads and basses. Phonec has an intuitive GUI that attempts to strike a balance between form and function, making it a very usable tool that can be a real inspiration to work with. Apart from it's unique character and smooth workflow, Phonec has several interesting features that set it apart from the crowd. Here is a brief overview that highlights the most important aspects:

Apart from it's unique character and smooth workflow, Phonec has several interesting features that set it apart from the crowd. Here is a brief overview that highlights the most important aspects:

- Dual oscillators that can be combined in various ways
- Various oscillator combinations: Mix, Sync, Ring, X-wave, logic
- Sub Oscillator for beefing up the low end
- Analog style oscillator drifting
- 2-stage lowpass filter plus 1-pole highpass
- A unique Melt feature that adds instant character to any patch
- Arpeggiator
- Modulation Sequencer
- 3 LFOs (2 monophonic, 1 polyphonic)
- HFO (High Frequency Oscillator)
- Various modulation types: AM, PM, FM, Filter FM
- 2 Modulation Envelopes
- Aftertouch control of several parameters
- Echoshifter Delay Unit
- External Audio Processing
- MIDI Learn and automation of any parameter
- Patch Randomization
- Double Click Parameter Reset
- Intuitive patch managment system
- Default bank of 128 patches

Psychic Modulation Phonec Phonec v 2.0 Mar 20, 2016 MacOS X Intel
Phonec2 has many exciting new features that make it better than ever. For starters, there's plenty of improvements in the overall signal flow. From the oscillators to the Echoshifter and everything that gets Melted in between, each section has been reworked to create the best Phonec experience yet.

Aftertouch is one feature that has been requested by some of the most dedicated Phonec users. This was originally going to be applied to only a couple of parameters like Melt and Filter, but I decided to go all out and make a new Mod panel devoted entirely to aftertouch, with control of nine different parameters, making Phonec more expressive than ever before.

Patch randomization has also been included, but not just to blatantly randomize every control at one time. Phonec2 has randomization switches for specific sections that were well planned out, giving you a little common sense chaos where it can be most useful.

Each control now has the ability to be assigned to a midi controller by simply right-clicking on it. You'll also notice that the controls are much smoother and seem to glide into position.

The sequencer has been greatly improved, with a modulation grid for the Filter/Amp and Copy/Paste controls for storing your patterns and pasting them into other patches. There have also been improvements in the way the sequencer responds to note triggering, with super solid timing.

If you thought the Echoshifter was an interesting effect before, get ready for this new incarnation. High and Low pass filters have been added into the feedback path for creating sweeping delays and tape delay dub sounds. But to make this even more unique is the Shifter being added into the feedback path as well. Crank the feedback up and adjust the shifter and you can get endless insanity. And for even more fun, tweak the Phase control for crazy phase shifting sounds. Best of all, Phonec likes to share. You can run your favorite synths or any other external input straight into the Echoshifter. And of course, external signals can still pass through the Melt effect as well.

And finally, perhaps one of the more convenient of all the new features is the updated patch management system, where you can load/save banks and copy/paste patches right from the interface.
