In principle, Phalanx is a one-shot sample player. It can reproduce samples from any source (such as those from any of the Vengeance Sample Packs) directly, but also encourages realtime, creative editing. Although Phalanx is primarily a comfortable 16-track drum sampler capable of delivering the foundation for your productions, it can do a lot more than simply trigger drum sounds: Phalanx offers enough different ways of manipulating the loaded samples that it could almost qualify as a full-fledged synthesizer.
Im using Phalanx every day in most of my Productions. I bought also all Expansions...great Stuff.
Easy to use but a lot of functions to tweak your sounds.
Big Plus is the Single Version for Logic Pro :)Read Review
Man this thing is a beast. I absolutely LOVE Phalanx. The sound is absolutely amazing and the functionality is incredible.Read Review
I purchased the latest premium version 1.5.3 after seeing videos of the program; looking at some trailers and reading reviews in the music press.
It turned out not to be what I was expecting.
Downloading the program is fairly straightforward because the file size is small (around 1GB in total combining the basic and premium content). So the program has the potential to have a small footprint on your hard drive even after purchasing the various expansion packs.
I only managed to get the AU variant of Phalanx working in my DAW (Studio One). The VST3 version acted rather oddly. It wouldn't playback samples as they sounded when using preview in the Library. Kick drums sounded very distorted and only through the left channel.
In the reviews I read (Computer Music for example) there were comments about the workflow for Phalanx being really good. This is not what I found. Apart from the issues with the VST3 version, I've realised that Phalanx has a steeper learning curve than I expected. It's not a program that rewards the user quickly.
I suggest anyone looking to purchase Phalanx should try a demo first.Read Review
