Reader Paul Bowen tipped us off to his new Korg Poly 800 demo video.
Here’s what he has to say about the Poly 800:
The Korg Poly 800 is a much maligned synth, yes, it’s built out of cardboard, yes, the parameter resolution is about 5-bit, yes, it only has 1 filter for all 8 dco’s, but the thing sounds beautiful! Some folks seem to think that it sounds like a $10 casio but i hope in my video demo that i can prove otherwise 🙂
All sounds in this video, except for the drums, come from the Poly 800, moderate effects have been used, delay/reverb/distortion, in places, however the chorus is built in to the unit.
– Big Beautiful Digi-Analogue Pads and Polysynth sounds
– Phat moog-style Basses and Leads
– TECHNO MUSSOLINI
– Bullying isn’t Cool Kids!
– Dirty Techno
– Pimp-ass Dancing
– Stupid facial expressions are optional
You’ll probably be asking yourself why official demo videos aren’t more like this – until techno Mussolini rears his head.
Check it out and let us know what you think!
