Detunized Polite 800 Universal
Polite 800 introduces another famous eighties synthesizer: the Korg Poly 800. This little leight-weight plastic thing was meant to be a performance synthesizer because it can run on batteries, has guitar strap pegs and inverted key colors. On the other hand programming this thing isn´t really a performance because like the majority of the budget synths of this time the Poly 800 has to be conquered with nothing more than a number block plus an increase and decrease button.
Live Pack and ReFill contain 35 instruments that perfectly capture the spirit of this classic hybrid. The Racks/Combinators have a standardized macro layout which is easy to familiarize with. So hot-swapping through the included Basses, Keys, Pads, Brasses and FX sounds is absolutely painless. Nevertheless all macros controls are multi-connected to more than 20 parameters per instrument which invites for a comfortable in-depth tweaking of the sounds.
The Universal Pack contains 32 multi-sample patches that load into numerous software samplers like Kontakt (NI), NN-XT (Reason). EXS 24 (Logic), Directwave (IL) as well as each other software sampler that supports the Cakewalk sfz format.
