New Soft Synth, Polymode, Inspired By The Moog Polymoog

Cherry Audio has introduced Polymode Synthesizer, a new software synth, inspired by the Moog Polymoog synthesizer.

Here’s what they have to say about Polymode:

“Polymode is inspired by the groundbreaking Moog Polymoog synthesizer. One of the world’s first polyphonic synthesizers, its unique multiple parallel filter implementation and mod routings give it a sound like no other synth. And though the original Polymoog sounded incredible, it could be challenging to operate and was prone to breakdowns.

Cherry Audio’s Polymode sidesteps all of the drawbacks of the original instrument and massively expands its capabilities. With a streamlined user interface and immense modulation capabilities, Polymode sets a new standard for animated, sonically evolving string, pad, and choral tones.”


  • Recreates the unusual paraphonic architecture of the original instrument
  • Over 150 presets
  • 32-voice polyphony
  • Extensive modulation routings for almost all synthesis parameters
  • Numerous modulation sources including velocity, pressure, white and pink noise and more
  • Simultaneously available saw and pulse waves for both oscillator ranks
  • “Super accurately” recreated “mode” filters
  • Expanded resonators section with additional LFO, 12db/24db slopes, and notch mode
  • Classic 24db ladder-style filter

  • Classic Solina-style tri-chorus mode
  • Two bonus LFOs with five waveforms and tempo sync

  1. I’m drawn to this a little, because the original had a fascinating sound. It was a fussy instrument, but it was still a Moog, plus part of that Solina aroma. Its Cherry Audio and $29, two good pluses. I don’t pile up dozens of synths on a whim, but this one sure seems like a good answer to almost anyone’s vintage string synth dreams.
    More sound demos, please.

  2. Anybody compared this to XILS Lab PolyM?

    IMO PolyM has a more analog/vintage character when comparing factory presets but Polymode sounds more suitable to mixing in a modern environment.
