"Ever since selling my real TB-303, I've been looking for an affordable replacement. Nothing sounds like the original grey box, software or hardware... and I've tried them all. To my ears Phoscyon is as close as you can get in the digital domain, and it has all the advantages of software - making it my favorite 303 emulator."

"The Phoscyon is without doubt the most authentic 303 emulator out there. Dare I say even better that the original??? It finds its way into every production I am involved with and is solid as a rock when it comes to live performance. Fantastic set of features, great price, and an unbeatable sound means the Phoscyon is king in our arsenal of sounds."
"The PHOSCYON is the best emulation of the TB-303 on the market, we love it. Works great and has a simple interface. We use the PHOSCYON for filtered acid basslines. D16 Group, 1000 points for the good work. Many thanks!"

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!
- 2 authentically emulated analog oscillators (saw/square)
- screaming 18db/oct low pass filter with absolutely no self oscillation
- filters equipped with transistor amplitude clipping
- perfectly scaled knob ranges
- additional synthesis controls expand the synthesizer's range
- 96 patterns
- each pattern up to 16 steps of length
- shuffle mode
- chain mode
- shuffle (swing) and tempo values defined per pattern
- patterns import/export via human readable xml files
Two modes of synchronization:
- precise synchronization to the host tempo
- synchronization to internal clock - tempo controlled in the range 30-300 BPM (+-0.1)
- 7 predefined chords and 1 user definable chord
- arpeggiator tempo multiplier (1, 1.5, 2, 3, 4, 6)
- arpeggiator repeat feature

- equipped with signal routing (Dist <=> Eq)
Many ways of controlling the device:
- external mode (notes triggering the sounds)
- internal sequencer (pattern mode)
- generates patterns from user defined range of notes, user defined chords or predefined chords (Major, Minor, 7th, m7th, M7, m7-5, DIM)
- generates random values for Note, Gate, Accent, and Slide attributes
- allows user to define attribute frequency
- Fully controllable via MidiCC
