XILS-lab PolyM v1.1.1 HAPPY NEW YEAR-R2R
Unique features, unique sound : A few factors determined the iconic sound of the PolyM 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 full 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 synthesiser ever done
And beyond : Because we not only exposed some parameters that were not accessible on the original machine, 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, plethora of LFO 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 synthesiser.
More : With this unit, feeding a monophonic zero-delay 24db self-oscillating filter, retriggered by keyboard strokes, gives you the possibility to play huge sounds in a way no other synthesiser can (PolyPedal behaviour emulated). Original presets, like ‘Vox Humana’, are also on board. Beyond the Pleasure Principal
Version 1.1, October 2018 : And now, in version 1.1, all these signature effects are available to process any instruments and sounds of 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 it’s multicriteria search engine, as well as to manage easily all your sound collections.
