Psychic Modulation has released version 2.2 of its Phonec synthesizer instrument that is inspired by the mystique of video logos you hear at the beginning of worn out VHS tapes.

Phonec v2.2 has several new features including an onboard Chorus effect that can be integrated into the Melt function, a 3-band fully Parametric EQ, Pan tracking for widening arps and pads, new timings for the Arppegiator and Sequencer, new waveforms and modulation possibilities and several improvements.
