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.” –

  1. 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.
