Classic analog synthesizer from 1981
The KORG Poly 61 is one of the first polyphonic synthesizers in the history of electronic music. It impresses with the sonorously dynamic synth sounds of the 80s. This synth has been used in many internationally successful productions. With its digitally storable soundbanks it offers a wide range of applications for the lover of vintage analog keyboard sounds. On stage it impresses with its easy handling. Retrofitted with MIDI or in the factory equipped version with MIDI it is also a very interesting sound supplier within the wide synthesizer family.
worth the buy in
This is like a jx3p if korg made it. Same filter and sweet but hissy chorus as the later DW6000. Same fun joystick for switling through pitch bend and LFO mod. If you like that sound and can deal with the amateur grade keybed (even by 80s standards), 2 digit parameter selection and data slider interface but want regular DCOs with regular shapes? Bingo. Highly recommended. Get an M with MIDI if possible. Limited implementation but usually the upcharge for an M is less than a MIDI retrofit and how many features do you need anyway?
This is not anything to do with the polysix.... just 6 voices and a similar name. DCOs, no SSM filter chip (I think the korg filter has more character anyway, SSs were ubiquitous in the 70s like CEMs in the 80s anyway)... 2 oscillators, more robust architecture. Its really a DCO DW6000. The enxt evolution was wave memory oscillators and the the DW8000 with digital delay and 2 more voices.
Poor man's Juno
Really cool anolog synth with digital clocking, parameter adjustments and preset saving. Fixed one and almost sold it, glad that didn't happen. The arpeggiator function is tons of fun, especially at faster speeds with sounds that have a quick attack.
