Audio Damage Phosphor

Audio Damage’s new synthesizer plug-in Phosphor is a recreation of an 80s synth called the alphaSyntauri that required an Apple IIe. Herbie Hancock and Keith Emerson both used alphaSyntauris. I remember seeing them but I don’t think I ever used one. I’d like to make a track using only Phosphor and Lindrum. Available now for $59. Anyone buying this one? Please let me know if you like it.

“Phosphor is a VSTi/AU instrument modeled on the alphaSyntauri, a vintage digital additive synth. The original alphaSyntauri required an Apple //e to operate, but we’ve gone ahead and eliminated the middle-man, and now you can have this classic digital synth in your DAW of choice.” –

    I’ll most likely buy it this weekend when i get paid. Love AD syuff!


    1. Let me know if you like it!


  2. yep! count me in. this sounds interesting, and AD has good ideas and execution.


  3. Bought it the day it came out (like I do with everything that AD makes). It is indeed the business and should be purchased by all. You can’t get an additive synth anywhere for $60, let alone one with built in filters and delays. And the presets that it comes with are fantastic. As I mentioned on Analog Industries the other day, the presets covered a ton of territory that I had planned on synthesizing myself. Phospher also excels at weird fx. That I wasn’t expecting. At all. Plus it’s got a random button. If any other company had put this out it would cost over $200 dollars.


    1. Thanks fo the review William. If you want link to some of your music. I’d like to hear it!
