We hear some seriously deep, mean, raunchy bass sounds coming out of Phocyon. And we dig it! But it’s also got considerable range, with robotic bloops, atmospheric arpeggios, dirty square stabs, and more. Check it out.

Звукът и емулацията са неочаквано достоверни, а сайтът Acidvoice.com, който сравнява наличните на пазара симулации, оценява Phoscyon с 8/10!

It’s fully featured, boasting even more functions compared to the original, and is very reasonably priced.[...] I can’t remember when I had such a good time with an instrument, as I had with Phoscyon.
It has to be said that Phoscyon shounds amazing! Of course, it has taken the original Roland concept further and has given it more of a sonic scope. From my memory and experience using the TB-303 I prefer Phoscyon. Yes, I do! Now I am not interested in purist arguments. [...] I'm hooked! I had visions of myself wearing pilot shades and a military bomber jacket ... Spread the net and catch the Phoscyon! You will be very happy with it! Full marks!

Browsing through the sounds of Phoscyon reminds me of tunes by Aphex Twin, FSOL, Squarepusher, Chemical Brothers, Acid Junkies, Josh Wink, and many more. Perhaps overused at times, the 303 still has a timeless sound to me. [...] To my ears it sounds very similar to a real TB-303, and with the additional arpeggiator and distortion units it goes well beyond the type of sounds that the original hardware is capable of.

Hosting all the features that made the 303 king, plus some massive improvements after years of tweaking, this emulator may just be the best reproduction ever wired. [...] Fatboy Slim might just have to change his track to, Everybody needs a Phoscyon!

It's a fun synth with a mighty big sound that simply begs to be tweaked and then tweaked some more. [...] Definitely worth a fiddle

[...] ceux qui veulent voir du pays, les blasés de la 303, devraient jeter une oreille sur Phoscyon car il risquerait fort de les surprendre. On sent de l'mour dans ce plugin !

Phoscyon ist eine äußerst autentische Emulation der TB-303 und ein echter Geheimtipp für Vintage-Sound-Entusiasten

There are loads of 303 emulations already out there, but we're still relishing the prospect of testing d16's unorthodox take on the classic acid box

Phoscyon überzeugt vor allem durch seinen guten Sound und die Klangerzeugung. Subjektiv gefällt der Sound - insbesondere bei zugeschaltetem Plug-in-internen Verzerrer - sogar einen Tick besser als der der AudioRealism Bass Line
