Taking the classic analog sound of the legendary silver box into the future, PHOSCYON offers an unmatched sound together with advanced features such as a state of the art Distortion unit; fully user configurable BPM sync'd Arpeggiator and Randomizer; a unique 'Play Live' mode; vintage arrangement and pattern builder, full MIDI CC support and, to top it off, the most authentic 18db/oct low pass filter ever created!
Diehard fans of the original Bass Line will be blown away with PHOSCYON’s uncanny emulation of the classic, but will also marvel at the ease with which new sounds can be crafted; sounds which were not possible on the original. PHOSCYON gives you access authentic vintage sounds at a fraction of the cost of the real thing. With the familiar Bass Line interface coupled with the added sound generation tools, we at D16 Group feel that PHOSCYON is quite simply in a class of its own.
PHOSCYON's designers are also musicians who believe that in order for electronic music to stay relevant, it needs to evolve – just like any other genre. Our approach is to give forward thinking musicians and producers the tools they need to craft the sounds they want. Whether it’s Techno, Acid, Triphop, IDM, D&B, Ambient, or any other kind of genre-bending music, PHOSCYON will take your sound further.

Phoscyon is a vintage analog modeled Bassline synthesizer with a unique low pass filter with an 18db/oct dumping and constant resonance amplitude throughout the entire frequency domain. The filter sounds phenomenal! Hear that squelch and you’ll swear its analog! We’ve also equipped it with a fully customizable integrated arpeggiator (essential in electronic music) as well as an exhaustively analog modeled distortion effect, crucial for those screaming acid bass lines!

» It has to be said that Phoscyon shounds amazing! Of course, it has taken the original Roland concept further and has given it more of a sonic scope. From my memory and experience using the TB-303 I prefer Phoscyon. Yes, I do! Now I am not interested in purist arguments. [...] I'm hooked! I had visions of myself wearing pilot shades and a military bomber jacket ... Spread the net and catch the Phoscyon! You will be very happy with it! Full marks! «

» Browsing through the sounds of Phoscyon reminds me of tunes by Aphex Twin, FSOL, Squarepusher, Chemical Brothers, Acid Junkies, Josh Wink, and many more. Perhaps overused at times, the 303 still has a timeless sound to me. [...] To my ears it sounds very similar to a real TB-303, and with the additional arpeggiator and distortion units it goes well beyond the type of sounds that the original hardware is capable of.

» [...] ceux qui veulent voir du pays, les blasés de la 303, devraient jeter une oreille sur Phoscyon car il risquerait fort de les surprendre. On sent de l'mour dans ce plugin ! «
Bigshot, May/June 2007
» Hosting all the features that made the 303 king, plus some massive improvements after years of tweaking, this emulator may just be the best reproduction ever wired. [...] Fatboy Slim might just have to change his track to, “Everybody needs a Phoscyon!” «
Future Music, May (174) 2006
» It's a fun synth with a mighty big sound that simply begs to be tweaked and then tweaked some more. [...] Definitely worth a fiddle «

» There are loads of 303 emulations already out there, but we're still relishing the prospect of testing d16's unorthodox take on the classic acid box «
Keys, Juni 2006
» Phoscyon ist eine äußerst autentische Emulation der TB-303 und ein echter Geheimtipp für Vintage-Sound-Entusiasten «
Beat, Juni 2006
» Phoscyon überzeugt vor allem durch seinen guten Sound und die Klangerzeugung. Subjektiv gefällt der Sound - insbesondere bei zugeschaltetem Plug-in-internen Verzerrer - sogar einen Tick besser als der der AudioRealism Bass Line «
» The 303 is back in today's tracks, if you need that screaming filter sound in a plug in, search no further. The Phoscyon is all that, plus more. «
It's not a standalone program so you need a host application to use it.
