Xils-Lab has released PolyM – a software recreation of the Moog Polymoog synthesizer.
Unlimited polyphony, as PolyM’s inspiration was considered when released. Even if it was not true, compared to monophonic synthesizers 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 a revolution.
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.
