How about starting the new year with a new instrument from Audio Damage? Now available on our website is Phosphor, our first polyphonic synthesizer plug-in.
Phosphor traces its roots to the alphaSyntauri synthesizer, a ground-breaking synthesizer introduced in 1979. The alphaSyntauri used an Apple ][ computer for its user interface; sound generation was handled by hardware. It offered a glimpse of the power of additive synthesis at a price more or less affordable by someone who found an Apple ][ more or less affordable. I’m old enough to remember poring over an article in BYTE magazine about the alphaSyntauri, but I never actually used one. Our inspiration and reference for constructing Phosphor was a complete alphaSyntauri system that Chris assembled from eBay finds.
Phosphor is available now for $59, in VST for Windows and VST and AU for OS X. Hit our website for more info and audio demos.
