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”.

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.
Always liked this synth and it's great to see Au added!
Purchased many years ago at launch but never got to use it in a track. I broke my Auv3 only rule earlier this year and used it on one of my tracks. Will be making full use now Auv3 has been added.
Great retro synth.
Great but needs some refinement
Wicked sounding synth but needs more precision for certain parameters
Eg attack time / LFO speed
