The PolyKB II captures the sound and spirit of the legendary RSF PolyKobol polyphonic analog synthesizer, including one of its most stunning features : Two morphing Oscillators, that can be dynamically modulated by many sources.
This set it apart from all the other common analog synth recreations, because you have instant access to hundreds of different analog modelled & free running oscillators waveforms. More than in other synthesizer, including those who propose switching between oscillators models.
Add : A gorgeous, creamy multimode filter, with self resonance in all modes, and Xils exclusive 0df technology. Analog modelled envelopes, with time multiplication and looping capabilities. This completes the picture to offer you this fat and warm analog sound.
Per Voice ! It wouldn’t be a XILS-lab instrument if it didn’t have innovative & exclusive features like the Per Voice modulation engines to propel it into the XXIth century
Make each note different : The Voice XY is a Per Note Quad XY modifier. You can control in a 2D square up to 4 different parameters to create from subtle to wild variations for each new note you play.
Control your sound in 3D Space : With the Space XY module, you can place each note in a 3D True Stereo Space, and build stereo scenes that no additional external effect can achieve. Furthermore, you can make it move with chaotic functions, adding incredible life to your sounds. You have never had so much artistic control over the stereo field.
If you combine these two Per Note modifiers with the True Unison Engine, you’ll soon get amazing, dense, and breath taking sounds, that will proudly take their place in a mix at once. And to operate it, you simply place and move balls, representing the voices, in a square. So easy, so immediate, so tempting, and … so powerfull !
More ? Dynamic control of envelope segments and levels, LFO and single oscillators levels. Polyphonic Arpeggiator & Sequencer ( Sequencer can be used as modulation source). Dozens of harwired and user customisable Macros modulations. 5 monophonic & polyphonic Play Modes. Syncable LFOs with cumulative waveforms, and reset switch. Polyphonic aftertouch. Midi Cc assignations to ALL parameters. Preset manager with customisable tags and multicriteria search engine. Vintage analog modelled Chorus, Delay, Phaser and EQ.Etc.
Everything is there to allow you to create fully organic and expressive presets : The final encounter between analog creamyness, and the modern age.
