Korg today introduced Polysix for Propellerhead’s Rack Extension plugin format. Korg Polysix is a software recreation of the classic 80’s polyphonic synthesizer.
Polysix for Reason uses Korg’s CMT (Component Modeling Technology) to model the electronic circuitry of the original analog instruments, capturing the sound and parameter response of the originals.
In addition to replicating the sound of the original, the Polysix for Reason also adds enhancements, including:
- 32-voice polyphony (max)
- Up to 16-voice unison (with detune/spread function)
- Flexible external modulation settings
- MIDI clock synchronization
- A spread function that adjusts the spaciousness of the effects.
The interface provides reorganized knobs and switches that resurrect the Polysix in a contemporary “rack-mountable” form for even more intuitive operation and sound-creating versatility.
The Polysix programmable six-voice polyphonic analog synthesizer was introduced in 1981. With a full-sounding voice structure, chorus/phase/ensemble effects and performance functions such as chord memory, arpeggiator, and unison, the Polysix became a world-wide hit. Its distinctive string and pad sounds are often heard to this day.
