Phonec 2 is the successor to the original Phonec synthesizer, which was inspired by the mystique of video logos you hear at the beginning of worn out VHS tapes. This time around it's available for both Mac and PC as a 32/64-bit VST and Audio Units plugin. Phonec 2 has all the great features of the original plus much more including several improvements.

Phonec 2 is capable of producing a wide range of sounds such as vintage analogue tones, lo-fi synthscapes, ethereal pads, minimal techno sequences, and synthwave leads and basses. Phonec has an intuitive GUI that attempts to strike a balance between form and function, making it a very usable tool that can be a real inspiration to work with.

A very nice sounding synth. While I can probably make something like this in one of the synths I have already, this one comes straight out of the box with that Boards of Canada nostalgic sound stamped all over it. As a speciality synth it wins hands down.

That's how I feel. This could certainly be replicated in a synth like zebra, with some added effects, but for me, phonec is much more inspiring, seeing as it leads you in that direction from the start.

Other notable aspects of Phonec: the gain control adds thick, punchy distortion that complements the synth's character well. There's an HFO that can add (envelope-modded) FM to the sound, which really multiplies the sonic possibilities. The delay has detune and a buffer effect tacked on - warbly, untamed soundscapes galore!

The more I use Phonec, the more I love it. It's the biggest surprise of 2012, and my personal highlight.
