Quoted from Prodyon Virtual Gear website:

Overview

PHENOME is a low-CPU 8-part multitimbral Soundfont (SF2) Player-VST Instrument with all the basic features like ADSR, multiple filters and arpeggiators.
It has been designed to focus on getting things done quickly rather then being bloated with features that get hardly ever used.

In Detail

You select on of the eight layers of PHENOME and load any Soundfont you have into it. From there you choose the patch you want (and bank). Each layer has controls for volume, pan, muting, one of eight(!) stereo-outputs and much more…

Create complete multi-setups

All eight soundfonts that you can load and play simultaneously can be “saved” in one setup or “multi” using your hostยดs FXB (Bank-Save)-feature.
This way you can easily save your favourite custom settings/multis and load them back later in another song or project.

PHENOME also features full recall/automation and MIDI-learn for almost every control on screen!
The mapping is easy: Right-Click a control of your choose and choose “Learn”.

There is much more to explore – so download your free copy of PHENOME today and start playing!

System Requirements

To make full use of PHENOME a decent Windows-PC is a must-have. 1Ghz Single-Core Processor and 256 MB RAM is the minimum to run PHENOME.
Windows XP/Vista/7 (TM) , 32-Bit. (64 Bit not tested). XP Users: Service Pack 2 required! PHENOME hasnยดt been test on V-Machine yet.

  1. I’m going to download this for sure!

    I was going to ask you a few dumb questions on youtube in a message so no one would think I’m a complete idiot..but I guess I dont care lol, but this seems related….
    Well, first, in trance music do you use arps? and if so when and how? I know there are tons of arp presets but I would like to make my own so I don’t feel like a cheater lol.

    So that leads to my second question….Is the arpeggiator how you create arps? I’m only familiar with FL’s basic features so I haven’t messed with them yet. And if so, is a VST like this one how you can create your own?

    I know I just asked for alot, and sorry! But if you would rather make a tutorial about this that would be fine too. Thanks again and love your tuts!

    • Jon, that’s a good question ๐Ÿ™‚

      Arpeggios are widely used in trance. I think it’s one of the most common elements in this genre. Arpeggio is a musical technique where notes in a chord are played in sequence one after the other rather than simultaneously. And this is where arpeggiator come in handy. Arpeggiator automatically steps through a sequence of notes based on an input chord.

      There’s actually several ways to create arpeggios. You can create them manually by hand by laying the notes one-by-one like the arpeggiator would do. So in FL Studio you go to Piano Roll, pick a chord and lay the notes one-after-another.

      Also, many of the synthesizers have built in arpeggiators and usually they’re programmable meaning you can manipulate the order and speed in which the notes play: upwards, downwards or in a random order.

      Then there’s VST plugins that acts as a arpeggiator. Check Kirnu by Arto Vaarala. You can feed any sound into it and it makes them arpeggiate.

      Moreover, in FL Studio theres “Riff Machine” which you can use to create arps using any VST synthesizer you want.

      Actually this is a great idea for my next tutorial. I’ll start to work with it right away ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Thanks alot!!!
    I’m listening to your trance right now and It totally makes since! (The wall to be exact :D) I can pick out the up and down sequence you were talking about ๐Ÿ™‚
    I want to try right now haha.
    The Kirnu VST looks great too! I’m going to give it a try. Although If I get frustrated Ill probably end up on the piano roll haha.
    Man I can’t say thanks enough!
    Can’t wait for your tutorial!!!
    Take it easy man ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Already?!? Awesome man!!
    I was just about to mess around with with kirnu and stuff, so perfect timing haha ๐Ÿ˜€

    I really appreciate it ๐Ÿ˜€

  4. if you’re using FL studio, you can load one instance of Phenome, load up all 8 channels, set the midi port in options and then add “MIDI OUT” channels to access all the instruments you’ve added in Phenome. This is instead of adding multiple instances of Phenome. Same thing with SampleTank. Only pb with MIDI OUT channels is that you can’t do effects on them.

  5. Hi!
    This is a awesome website with a lot of tips!! I have some trouple with this plugin though. First, I tried to copy the .dll file to Fl studio-plugin directory. Launch the plugin once. Then install the factory presets to the default directory. However there no presets present when I run the plugin in FL studio again.

    So, I tried to install the plugin to C:\Program\VSTplugin folder instead. Then reinstall the factory presets. I didn’t help.

    Could you please help me. I’m a newbie =)

    Thanks in advance

  6. I cannot seem to get Phenoe to work in Fl Studio 10. How would you set it up so you can use Phenome in Fl Studio 10?
