Pay what you want for the Invader 2 softsynth from E-Phonic


E-Phonic has unleashed Invader 2, an 8-voice, virtual analogue polysynth, which has been designed to be a powerful yet easy-to-use instrument.


The 8-voice virtual analogue looks and sounds the business. The softsynth is a classic analogue emulation with two oscillators and a sub-oscillator feeding into one of two low-pass resonant filters, featuring drive and high-pass functions. Other features include two LFOs, two envelopes, a stereo noise generator, ring modulator, delay, arpeggiator and a 16-step sequencer.





  • Knob-per-function interface
  • 2 oscillators + 1 sub-oscillator (tri, saw, PW, sync)
  • Polyphonic stereo unison with optional low CPU unison emulation mode (up to 48 voices)
  • 2 low pass resonant filter types (clean and raw)
  • Filter drive or high-pass option
  • Stereo noise generator
  • Ring modulation
  • 2 LFOs with delay function
  • 2 Envelopes
  • Delay effect with normal, ping pong, tape and diffusion delay modes
  • Arpeggiator / 16 step sequencer
  • 4 x oversampled engine
  • Medium and high-quality modes
  • 200+ presets


The interface offers knob-per-function so users should find it easy to use with an intuitive and familiar design to vintage synths. If you find yourself a bit stuck then Invader 2 comes with a healthy load of 200+ presets to get you started.


Despite the seemingly easy-to-use nature of the softsynth, the sonic results are rather pleasing. The sound demo above comes directly from Invader 2, with no external effects involved.


The Invader 2 is available now for 64-bit Mac and PC systems in VST3 and AU formats from the E-Phonic website.


The polysynth comes with an introductory offer where you get to pay what you want, just as long as it matches or is above the $5 minimum.
