Phosphor 3 by Audio Damage Released

Audio Damage updated Phosphor to V3, and if you own Phosphor 2, you may now download Phosphor 3 from your account. For desktop users, this is a free update. iOS Phosphor 2 owners can upgrade to Phosphor 3 for $3.99. (There is no way to do a crossgrade in the App Store, unfortunately.)

Phosphor is a polyphonic software synthesizer plugin modeled on the alphaSyntauri hardware synthesizer. Introduced in 1979, the alphaSyntauri used an Apple ][ microcomputer as its central processor and user interface. While quite modest by contemporary standards, the alphaSyntauri can create a surprising wealth of sounds easily, thanks to its simple but flexible approach to synthesis.

Rather than mimicking the small number of wave shapes available from the oscillators found in analog synthesizers, the alphaSyntauri’s oscillators used tables of numbers—essentially samples of a single cycle of an audio wave. The tables are filled using a process known as additive synthesis. The basic idea of additive synthesis is that any sound wave can be created by adding together many sine waves of different frequencies. Each sine wave has a pure sound with no harmonics, but if you add a bunch of them together you can create complex sounds. If you use enough sine waves, and if you control their relative loudness precisely over the duration of a note, you can recreate just about any sound. For an in-depth explanation of how this works, see

Since the alphaSyntauri was limited by the computational power available in its day, it took a relatively simple approach to additive synthesis. Each oscillator’s wave shape was created by adding together 16 sine waves, which we’ll henceforth refer to as partials. The wave shape could not change over the duration of a note, but each oscillator’s overall loudness was controlled by a separate envelope generator, and hence the timbre of the note could
be varied by mixing the two oscillators dynamically. Phosphor reproduces this system faithfully and adds several tricks of its own.

Phosphor 3 Improvements

Version 3 of Phosphor adds several new features and refinements

  • All new reactive UI.
  • MPE mode for expressive MIDI controllers.
  • TUN file loading.
  • New full-featured preset browser.
  • Re-written and modernized internals. 
  • Linux VST version added.

Phosphor 3 by Audio Damage Released 38

Phosphor 3 is a separate plugin, and will not replace Phosphor 2 in existing sessions. However, it has the ability to load Phosphor 2 presets, so your existing work is safe. 

Phosphor 3 Features

  • Two Voices
    Each voice has a wavetable oscillator with transposition and fine-tuning controls, a noise generator, level ADSR, delay line with filter, and level and pan controls.
  • Additive Wavetable Oscillators
    Each oscillator has 16, 32, or 64 partials with individual level sliders, preset buttons for common waveforms, and partial level randomization.
  • Noise Sources
    White noise in regular operation or shift-register noise in vintage mode. 
  • ADSR x 2
    One level envelope for each voice with control over the duration and curvature of the Attack, Decay and Release segments.
  • Vintage Modes
    Introduces digital artifacts and distortion. It can be engaged individually for each oscillator and noise source.
  • LFO x 2
    Optionally host tempo-synced Low-Frequency-Oscillators with Sine, Triangle, Rectangle, and Random shapes. Skew sliders affect waveforms differently in different modes. It can be used on a per-note basis or globally.
  • Modulation Panel
    Quick modulation assignment via the modal panel 
  • Dual Delays
    One optionally host-tempo synced delay effect for each voice with the feedback filter. Each voice’s delay can crossfeed into the other.
  • TUN File Support
    Load TUN-files for non-traditional/microtonal tunings.
  • Cross Modulation
    The voices’ oscillators can modulate each other’s frequencies, akin to the NED Synclavier. Voices can be muted and used only exclusively as modulators, too.
  • Voice Modes
    Poly mode, as well as mono mode without retriggering and retrigger mode. Variable portamento in mono and retrigger mode.
  • T-Rand modulation
    Modulation source generating a bipolar random value every time a note is played.
  • Software Keyboard
    Particularly useful on touch interfaces. Note velocity is determined by Y position.
  • MPE (MIDI Polyphonic Expression) 
    Full MPE support with variable parameter smoothing for aftertouch. 
  • Factory Presets
    Phosphor 3 comes with a collection of factory content, including Designer Presets from Red Means Recording and Ken Flux Pierce.
  • All-New Preset browser
    Quick and easy preset import, export, and organization. Supports import and export of zip archives, preset copy, and paste, and arrangement of user presets in folders.
  • Cross-Platform Preset Format
    Fully cross-platform XML-based preset-format. Work between multiple systems without troubles, make a preset on your desktop machine and paste it to the iOS version with Handoff, easily share your creations with your friends, or make a preset bundle sell.
  • Fully Resizable Hi-Dpi/Retina GUI
    Phosphor 3’s vector-based GUI is resolution-agnostic and displays the same on every system and resolution. Easily resize the UI (per instance) to match your visual needs, from postage stamp to poster-sized.

Phosphor 3 Demo Version

Audio Damage encourages you to download and try the demonstration version of Phosphor before purchasing it. The demo version of Phosphor is the same as the regular version, but has the following limitations:

  • Presets cannot be saved, nor can parameter values or other settings. This includes the information usually stored by your host DAW. If you save a DAW session with an instance of the demo version of Phosphor, Phosphor will revert to its default state when you reload the session.
  • Phosphor will cease to produce audio at all 20 minutes after you add it to your DAW session. You can remove it and add it again, but it will revert to its default state.


Phosphor 3 is available in the Audio Damage store for US$59.00 for 64-bit AAX/AU/VST/VST3 macOS 10.11+, Windows 10, and Ubuntu Linux.

Audio Damage Updated Continua



Audio Damage Updated Continua

Continua by Audio Damage

Audio Damage releases and updated for their Continua a Virtual Analog Synth VST

Continua is a virtual analog synth with a twist: a continuously morphable threesome of oscillators. With three interconnected controls defining the wave shape, Continua has a virtually limitless supply of waveforms, especially when you add cross modulation and noise in to the mix.

Continua V1.1.0

  • The preset manager now closes when you double-click on a preset. 
  • Every last vestige of OpenGL removed; this should increase compatibility on Linux and in future macOS versions. It was already off on the Windows and iOS versions; we have removed it from the macOS and Linux versions as well.  
  • macOS payload is now Universal Binary 2, and Continua will run natively on Apple Silicon Macs. 
  • macOS minim version is now 10.12 “Sierra” due to digital signing requirements by Apple.
  • Linux payload now includes the VST3 version.
