XILS Lab PolyM
Synthesizer Virtual Instrument
PolyM distinguishes itself from other synths by having extraordinary features and a unique sound.
A few factors were key to the creation of the iconic sound of the PolyM's glorious ancestor, the Polymoog synthesizer.
First was replicating the two T.O.D (Top Octave dividers) Oscillators, each with PER NOTE Pulse Width Modulation, initially used to get a big polyphony (unique at the time).
Secondly was that iconic gritty Moog designed 24dB Ladder Filter, the essential acoustic Filter Bank and, finally, a rich full of character Resonator Bank.
More than two years were spent analyzing the Polymoog synthesizer.
It convinced XILS-Lab that the most important part in recreating the true character of the sound was the Top Octave Divider Oscillators.
So, during several months, they worked on modeling the Polymoog's oscillators in a way no one else had before.
They successfully developed a Divide Down algorithm that brings out the true sound of the Polymoog.
The legendary Vox Humana sound, popularized by Gary Numan in his song Cars, can now be played by anyone with Xils PolyM.
It is now possible to deliver that authentic vintage sound you would never have found without using the original classic synth itself.
To take up the emulation gauntlet, more than two years were necessary to closely, patiently, model these 71 components to finally come up with the best and most versatile Divided-down synthesizer ever made.
XILS were able to expose parameters that were not accessible on the original instrument, allowing you to dive into the machinery and mod it without a screwdriver, a soldering iron and electronic components.
We also added a more traditional analog VCA ADSR, a plethora of LFOs to modulate almost everything, and a trio of vintage sounding effects among others things.
Using divide-down technology offers a particular sound for Chords, Strings and Pads you won't find in any other synthesizer.
With this unit, feeding a monophonic zero-delay 24dB self-oscillating filter, retriggered by keyboard strokes, gives you the possibility of playing huge sounds in a way that no other synthesizer can (PolyPedal behaviour emulated). Original presets, like 'Vox Humana', are also on board: Beyond the Pleasure Principal!
For more pleasure playing chords, an Advanced Arpeggiator has been developed and integrated in version 1.5.
All these signature effects are available to process any instruments and sounds in your collection as a VST effect.
The PolyM is also NKS compatible. And with the Advanced Preset Manager, you'll be able to find the right sound in seconds, thanks to its multi-criteria search engine, as well as to easily manage all your sound collections.
