"It's a gorgeous-sounding machine; fully polyphonic, with all the functions of a standard analog synth, and the string sounds are amazing. Gary Numan's "Cars" in the flesh." -RJD2, [Thump.Vice Interview](https://thump.vice.com/en_ca/article/rjd2-gave-us-a-guided-tour-of-his-columbus-ohio-home-studio)more
This Guitar Player article states that Phillips used a Polymoog on one of his albums: "Following Wise After the Event, Phillips’ music moved into a much more personal and uncompromising space. The third reissue, 1984—originally released in 1981—saw a major directional shift, as the album comprised almost entirely electronic music performed on a Moog Polymoog and a Roland GR-500 guitar synth."more
Largely designed by Dave Luce, a Moog Music employee, the Polymoog is a 71-note, fully polyphonic (divide-down) synthesiser, and was produced in two distinctly different models - the 203a and the 208a. The 203a allowed each of the 8 presets to be fully edited and is identifiable by its front panel which is well-stocked with controls. The Polymoog Keyboard (the 208a pictured here) increases the number of presets to 14 but reduces the amount of editing available. Although potentially limited, it was no less popular (as Gary Numan's most famous track will attest to!)
