Back in May, I released an article about an upcoming Polymoog emulation by Xils Lab. The waiting time for this new software beast is over. Xils Lab announced today the official release of PolyM, an accurate and first Polymoog emulation for PC & Mac.To increase the power of this new synth, the developer added to the accurate sound unlimited polyphony.
If you always want to have the sound of the Polymoog in your favourite DAW without buying a faulty vintage device (the old devices are known for many issues), than the PolyM Synthesizer from Xils Lab is perfect for you. A free demo is available from the official website. Stay tuned for a big sound demo very soon at the Synth Anatomy youtube channel.
Unlimited polyphony, as PolyM’s model was considered when released ! Even if it was not true, compared to monophonic synthesisers of these times or to the five or eight voices machines, the 71 voices, each one with its own pulse width modulation, filter, VCA and envelope generator, was clearly a revolution.
Recreating this legendary synthesiser as a virtual analog was a real challenge ! We decided to take up the gauntlet !
A Gem of Pleasure : It took more than two years, analysing, measuring, testing, scratching our heads, but we are proud to now offer you the PolyM, one of the best, if not the best, virtual divided-down based virtual synthesiser out there.
Two Top Octave Divider (T.O.D) oscillators, slightly detuned for an incredible phasing effect and a very special envelope generator are the Heart and the Soul of the PolyM.
The secret of this monster is its hybrid design from an organ like synthesiser and three filter banks, including a 24db ladder filter, driven by a monophonic envelope.
The Sound ! Using divide-down technology offers a particular sound for Chords and Pads you can’t find any other way, but that’s not all. With that sound, feeding a monophonic zero-delay 24db self-oscillating filter, driven by the keyboard gives you the possibility to play huge Basses or leads as no other synthesiser can do.
But That’s not all : Add to this an Acoustic filter bank, a Resonator bank, a Delay, Phaser, Reverb and plenty of modulation possibilities, you can understand why the PolyM gives you so much pleasure when playing it !
Xils Lab PolyM is now available in a special introductory price of 99€ until August 31st. After, the price will be 149€.
