And there’s more from Audio Damage. Phosphor is an unique instrument that is modelled on the alphaSyntauri, a vintage digital additive synth from the early 80s. The original alphaSyntauri required an Apple //e to operate, but Audio Damage have gone ahead and cut out the middle-man, and now you can own this classic digital synth in your iOS device, at least on your iPad for now anyway.
Phosphor features two additive oscillators (with the original 16 partial complement of the alphaSyntauri, or optionally with 32 or 64 partials), each with its own amplitude envelope.
