The polysix is one of my favorites. These instruments are sturdy beasts, but the average age of is getting up there, so I don't dare taking them on the road anymore — I only use them for the studio.

"One of the greatest synthesizers ever built. Purists complain about things like the internal control signal sampling rate, and it's true, the design has its flaws. But for pads, etc, the M12 has a warm, rich sound that is not possible to duplicate using anything else. Alas, this machine is fairly sensitive to abuse. I've had better luck with the M6/M1000's, which has a very similar but simplified design and architechture — DCO's instead of VCO's, less modulation routings, and much less advanced filters."

"1989 I did my first tour with Jonas. I used the M12 and a rack with the dpx, IIRC. Later that year I joined Dio. We recorded Lock Up the Wolves and I used a lot of keyboards, almost all of what I had, but didn't end up using so much in the actual mix. For the Dio tour 1990 we had a T3EX that Korg lent us. I also bought the CX3 and a 117V 760 Leslie. The P6 and the DPX came to use again, as did the DX7 (yes, the same one) which was suspended from the ceiling and blown up every night (see story above)."
