D16 Intros “The Definitive 303 Emulation”, Phoscyon 2

D16 has introduced Phoscyon 2, a software emulation of the legendary Roland TB-303 bassline synthesizer that they say “has been taken to entirely new heights.”

While D16 says that the signal path has been designed to “achieve an unprecedented level of emulation accuracy”, Phoscyon 2’s design otherwise diverges significantly from the classic 303, adding a robust FX chain tailored to “acidic squeaks” and an original sequencer and arpeggiator, designed to make it easy to edit patterns and perform with them live.

Other features include:

  • Substantial factory content
  • Over 800 presets and patterns in factory content
  • Several UI sizes and HiDPI support for better screen fit
  • MIDI Learn for easy controller assignment

Here’s a demo of the factory presets:
