Introducing: Phoenix Pro – The Guitar Plugin That Turns Hacks into Shredders

The Phoenix Pro is a ‘Dynamic Phrase Modeler’ that is designed to make any novice guitarist, who is dipping their toes into home recording, sound like a pro with the click of a button.

The software uses a form of granular synthesis and enhanced spectral analysis that can correct pitch and timing issues on the fly (with only 4ms latency) to a DI’ed guitar signal.

MPT – Morphic Phrase Technology

A review by Toby Pitman on the website described the technology behind the plug-in: “At the heart of Phoenix Pro is the proprietary Morphic Phrase Technology which will analyze the incoming signal and ‘rephrase’ the performance by accessing a database of predefined musical phrases in a variety of styles. You can throw literally anything at this plugin and it will come out the other side sounding good! 

It works by first detecting and modeling the pickup of the guitar signal based on the impedance and phase correlation of the signal. (So far there are 47 recognized pickups from popular pickup manufacturers). This is then broken into grains and reassembled by the Phrase Modeler with little to no artifacts.”
