Virtual Music has introduced a new Polivoks filter mod for the Waldorf Pulse synth that they say makes it ‘a synth on steroids’.
The Polivoks Filter Upgrade offers low pass and band pass filter modes for the Waldorf Pulse. Oscillator 3 can be used as modulator for the filter cutoff frequency. And the original Pulse filter can still be used.
Here’s what they have to say about it:
“The filter of the Russian Polivoks synthesizer is legendary for its powerful and mangy sound. Nothing in the world is that fat! The new Virtual Music Polivoks Filter Upgrade is an adequate replica. It is a small circuit board, designed for installation in the Waldorf Pulse.
Polivoks + Pulse = A powerful team!
The distinctive aesthetics of the Polivoks filter under the control of a powerful modulation matrix make sonic dreams come true. With relatively little effort, this Filter Upgrade transforms the Pulse into a fantastic sounding analog monster that even outshines some famous vintage synthesizers.”
