Psychic Modulation has made a synthesizer that combines that “lo-fi” sound with vintage tape and synth type of processing, for a synth that sounds remarkably similar to artists such as Boards of Canada and others of that type.
It comes as a low-cost vst file type of plugin that works in your DAW (digital audio workstation). I use it in FL Studio.
Simple to use and fun to adjust, Phonec2 shatters the learning curve usually associated with many soft synths out there today. I like it in my music because it gives me the sounds I need that fit my genre.
I have made my sound bank of presets for Phonec version 2 available to everyone that owns Phonec2.
