These are other customers’ choices: Our most popular Virtual Instruments and Samplers. Despite the manual’s shortcomings, this kind of thing isn’t exactly rocket science and it’s not too hard to get the synth making some nice noises.

Despite the crowded market, Polish newcomers D16 Group have seen fit to debut with Phoscyon, a curiously named TB clone with a few tricks up its sleeve. Fans of the Roland TB’s distinctive tones are spoilt for choice on the software emulation front. Interesting new bells and whistles. Not accented sound without resonance at low cutoff. These all work as you’d imagine, and techno-heads will appreciate the extra noodling possibilities, though there’s nothing spectacularly unexpected on offer.

It remains pretty true to the original hardware; you’re limited to square or saw waves, and there’s a single filter with the ‘s characteristic 18dB low-pass response.

Available immediately We can send you a download license phoscoyn once you have purchased this product. There’s also a repeat note mode that repeats each note of the sequence a certain number of times, and an octave selector that lets you turn up to four octaves on or off – a nice touch.

One can acquire the original ReBirth for free via its sinister online mausoleumand there are dozens of other versions available, including Audiorealism’s elaborate mutation, Bass Line Pro. Our approach is to give forward thinking musicians and producers the tools they need to craft the sounds they want. Phoscyon’s designers are also musicians who believe that in order for electronic music to stay relevant, it needs to evolve — just like any other genre.

Phoscyon definitely offers a lot over the standard clone, and at the price it’s the most attractive proposition in the field. Most clones have a hard time with synth purists who are never quite satisfied with the quality of software copies, and it’s unlikely that this attempt will convert them.

The patterns from the built-in step sequencer can be triggered in from the host sequencer via MIDI notes. Notes are accented by giving them a velocity overand starting a new note before the last phoscon has finished will cause Phoscyon to slide between the two values.

Again these are non-essential functions when you’re using Phoscyon with a sequencer, but they make jamming new parts easy and are ideal for the live performer.


The manual is a little confusing on this function, but it’s actually a phoscon of filter used for bypassing accent, glide and gate values. Definitely worth a fiddle.

However, if you’re not intimately familiar with the original hardware it’s most likely that you’ll find Phoscyon convincing enough. The most obvious, yet least consequential of these is the rather striking interface design.

Acid-imitation aside, it’s a fun synth with a mighty big sound that simply begs to be tweaked and then tweaked some more. If that’s what you want, get it. This is much clearer than the usual digital display, and as such it’s a welcome addition.
