Unique features, unique sound: A few factors were integral in creating the iconic sound of the PolyM’s glorious ancestor: Two T.O.D Oscillators (Top Octave dividers), with PER NOTE Pulse Width Modulation, initially used to get a big polyphony (at this time), a gritty Moog designed 24dB Ladder Filter, an acoustic Filter Bank and, finally, a character rich Resonator Bank.
71 chips…: To take up the emulation gauntlet, more than two years were necessary to closely, patiently, model these 71 components to finally come up with the best and most versatile Divided-down synthesizer ever made.
And beyond: We were able to expose parameters that were not accessible on the original instrument, allowing you to dive into the machinery and mod it without a screwdriver, a soldering iron and electronic components. We also added a more traditional analog VCA ADSR, a plethora of LFOs to modulate almost everything, and a trio of vintage sounding effects among others things.
Using divide-down technology offers a particular sound for Chords, Strings and Pads you won't find in any other synthesizer.
More: With this unit, feeding a monophonic zero-delay 24dB self-oscillating filter, retriggered by keyboard strokes, gives you the possibility of playing huge sounds in a way that no other synthesizer can (PolyPedal behaviour emulated). Original presets, like 'Vox Humana', are also on board. Beyond the Pleasure Principal!
Version 1.1: In version 1.1, all these signature effects are available to process any instruments and sounds in your collection as a VST effect. The PolyM is also NKS compatible. And with the New Preset Manager, you'll be able to find the right sound in seconds, thanks to its multi-criteria search engine, as well as to easily manage all your sound collections.
