Psychic Modulation has released version 2.3 of Phonec, a software synthesizer that aims to recreate the obscure character and ghostly qualities of the video logos heard at the beginning of 80s films on VHS.
The update includes a new Melt system with high frequency oscillator integration, new filter variations and a new Acid filter, and lots more.
Aside from it’s quirky nature, Phonec is a unique and powerful synthesizer, capable of producing a wide range of sounds such as vintage analogue tones, lo-fi synthscapes, ethereal ambiance, minimal techno sequences, retro leads and hard hitting synth basses.
