Phase84 is an extremely capable synthesizer and features over 110 presets, containing all sorts of basses, leads, pads, bell tones, sweeps, atmospheric sounds, pseudo-realistic tones, and more. While you don't need to know much about synthesizers to get a lot out of Phase84, experienced synth tweakers will be thrilled at the sheer variety of unique sounds that can be produced with this incredibly versatile synth.

So What's Phase84 All About?

Phase84 is what's known as a Phase Distortion synthesizer. This form of waveshaping synthesis has its roots in Casio’s brilliant CZ line of digital synthesizers from the 80s. It is designed to have the warmth of a subtractive (analog) synthesizer, yet be capable of the squelchy tones and sharp attacks of an FM synth. Phase84 in particular can create warm pads, glitchy sounds, dirty basses, filthy sweeps, screaming leads, and anything in-between.

For those familiar with the typical Moog-like (or iMini-like!) synthesis, think of the "shaper" as being synonymous with "brightness" or "filter cutoff”.

Good sounds, needs updates

Very nice, expressive sounds can be programmed with this app, although it is not the easiest to use.

The main things that let it down are a fixed velocity onscreen keyboard (too many of these around) and no Audiobus or AU implementation. It works fine on IAA, although there is no handy built-in recording/export facility for quick ideas.

This app was mainly built for tabletop, which is fine, but it could be more accessible to other people, who don’t want to use it. It also appears to have been ignored by the devs for 2 years now.

Good synth

Produces some nice sounds, and has a well thought out interface. Lacking a couple of features that would be good for live performance, but overall it's pretty good.

Lovely sounds

I love the sounds this is making and a nice interface makes it easy to mess up the great presets
