Polyphonic

From Synthesizer Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

More than one Voice at a time. Exept duophonic Instruments which is pseudo polyphony. And full polyphony like Organs and String Machines.

hybrid synths - and more than 2 voices

out of my brain, more than 2 voices and full analog or hybrid ones...

new ones ( still "buyable" as new)

  • Alesis Andromeda A6
  • SCI/DSI poly evolver (key&rack) (hybrid: 2 OSCs are digital)
  • MFB poly lite (well, it's sort of hybrid OSCs digital - filter analogue, so it may not by counted as "full analog"? up to you..
  • Jomox SunSyn (hybrid 2 oscs are digital, but see this as an advantage, even lfos and ENVs are analogue here!)
  • Studio Electronics Omega 2/4/8
  • Vermona PerFourmer (PerFOURmer / Per4mer)

well, most of them are rare or hard to find.. but as you can see: you can still raise rarity ;) btw. count in the commodore SID chip in here, it is also polyphonic ;) and analogue! 3 voices..

to be discussed..

hybrid synthesizers.. with analog parts (filter) but with digital OSCs..:

Waldorf Microwave I Waldorf Q+ Waldorf Wave

Ensoniq ESQ1 Ensoniq SQ80

  • 2 real analogue OSCS, but still hybrid..
  • SCI/DSI poly evolver
  • Jomox sunsyn
