Phawuo is an experimental monophonic virtual-analog synth with "dirty" oscillators. Good for bass sound and effects.

New in version 3:
- OSC support
- AUv3
- Available for macOS (as a separate version); presets can be shared across devices

It features:
- Two special oscillators. Each one has two modes playing more rough (though antialiased waveforms with inharmonicity in higher pitches) or "cheezy" sound. Plays sawtooth / square waveform and is capable of pulse width modulation.
- distortion and feedback ring modulation for each oscillator
- 24 dB/octave state-variable filter (LP-BP-HP)
- two ADSR envelopes for amplitude and filter
- LFO to modulate the frequency and pulse width of oscillators' waveforms
- Effects section: two channels of delay + frequency shifter with feedback with some flexible routing. Also includes basic reverb
- Precise parameter editing: tap and hold finger on the slider.
- Audiobus support. Now you can stream live audio directly to other Audiobus-compatible apps! See for more information.
- Inter-App Audio support
- Background audio support: enabled when connected to Audiobus and user switchable otherwise.
- CoreMIDI support - virtual midi input

Snap Dirty!

Great synth. Suddenly stuck notes on new version!

Developer Response ,

Yes, this bug is confirmed and planned to be fixed in 3.0.1
The issues may happen with keyboard in standalone app, AU MIDI input doesn't have that problem

dirty nasty crackley synth

deep synth but simple to use at least i think so... got great results in a few minutes. excellent for analog crackly wobbly staticky synth sounds.
between this app and rrarow you have an instant noise band
