What are the differences between this ‘III’ and the ‘II’ and the original PolyKB ?
PolyKB III has 3 oscillators and 2 multimode filters (vs 2osc and 1 filter for PolyKB II). The Polysequencer can now be used as a supersized step modulator. User Macro mods matrix is 2x bigger. Added presets. Additionnal mod sources and targets. the 3 EVs have now individual time multiply settings. You can perform filter morphing. Etc.
One noticeable change is 3 morphing OCSs compared to 2 in the II version…
Want one for 119Euro
Oh dear, they really mean it. It’s a software thingy. Not for me.
It does sound classy and like 40 years ago, it does have the French touch, but still not for me.
Thought it was hardware from the article photo and INSTANTLY wanted to have sex with it.
Already had out my 1/4 inch and was ready for some fun. :(:
Another 100+ Euro plugin! Hurrayyyyyyy!!!!! Go rich people!!!!!! Let`s buy 5-6 of them!!! can`t wait!!!! Price depends on the market for the wood probably in this case!
The tape deck in the upper left corner – is that VHS or Beta?
To whom it may concern: this is the reason I’m an iPoo user. An expensive app on iOS might be 30 to 40 of your US dollars. I can’t afford 100 plus for each windies plugin.
For those of you concerned with the price, check the exchange rate. As I write this comment, €100 is equal to 105 American dollars. That is the best exchange rate I have seen in a long time, which makes this plug-in a steal because it sounds excellent.
Ilok, etc means a no-go.
You can also choose Soft Ilok : No physical dongle, and up to 2 simultaneous installs on 2 diff. computers.
