"We have an hardware Roland TB-303 and love the sound of it. It got such a special sound and behaviour and we thought all emulations sounded like shit.. That was until we tried the Phoscyon! It sounded like a real Roland TB-303!!! We have not used the hardware TB-303 since, sad but true."Dada Life. Dada Life is a Swedish DJ duo from Stockholm. The duo of Olle Cornéer and Stefan Engblom was formed in 2006. They have released two albums, as well as a number of singles and remixes.
"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!"Protonica. German progressive Psy-Trance band formed in 2003. Band members include Piet Kaempfer and Ralf Dietze - Billboard ranked Protonica 8th in 2013, on their Next Big Sound chart.
I've been using this live, throughout the summer at festies with big systems. Other than just sounding incredibly accurate, it also has scarily powerful sub destruction potential when you wind down that filter. After the gig, i have a look around the site. There are actually body parts and human organs littering said field due to my 22hz Foss Drone. I'm going to experiment with trying to make eyeballs pop out."Eddie Stevens. British Keyboardist, Record Producer, Composer and Arranger, best known for co-writing, arranging and touring with the UK groups Freakpower (with Norman Cook aka Fat Boy Slim) Moloko and Zero 7.
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 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!
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.
