Developer Tim Shoebridge has introduced PolyChain DIY, a MIDI utility that lets you poly-chain together up to eight separate instruments simultaneously.
Instruments can be hardware synths, electronic keyboards, samplers, grooveboxes, multi-timbral sound sources, even soft synths running as a VST in your DAW. If you can connect to the instrument via MIDI from your computer then PolyChain DIY can control it.
You can choose from four different poly-chain algorithms, create poly-chain zones across your keyboard, transpose your instruments, set their priority, control pan spread across your instruments as well as other basic sound attributes, if your synths have suitable support via MIDI CC automation.
Note: PolyChain DIY is a module for Cherry Audio’s Voltage Modular. Voltage Modular runs on Windows and Apple Mac, both as a standalone application and as a VST plugin for your DAW. Modules can be purchased and downloaded using Voltage Modular’s online store. Voltage Modular itself is free to download.
