phon is a real-time collaborative synthesizer built with audiolib.js and node.js. It was created during node.js knockout 2011 by davidgovea and catshirt.

Phon's particle interactions are modelled with energy, momentum, and quantum mechanical phenomena in mind - diamonds represent higher energy states which particles may enter after high-energy collisions.

Development is planned to continue.


  • Adding note: Select cell, click "Lead", choose note and "Assign"
  • Adding reflectors: Drag / drop from diamonds
  • Removing reflectors: Double-click on reflector

Running locally

$ git clone
$ cd phon
$ npm install
$ make
$ node server.js
