A Goliath of Sound

The Massive Poly Sound Machine

Polymode is inspired by the groundbreaking Moog Polymoog synthesizer. One of the world’s first polyphonic synthesizers, its unique multiple parallel filter implementation and mod routings give it a sound like no other synth. And though the original Polymoog sounded incredible, it could be challenging to operate and was prone to breakdowns. Cherry Audio’s Polymode sidesteps all of the drawbacks of the original instrument and massively expands its capabilities. With a streamlined user interface and immense modulation capabilities, Polymode sets a new standard for animated, sonically evolving string, pad, and choral tones.

The Polymoog 203a was a lush sonic part of my youth. John Foxx of Ultravox!, Gary Numan, Steve Nieve and Rick Wakeman used this synth on some of my favorite records, and I had to have one, but never did get one. Just as my hunt for a healthy vintage unit began, Polymode synchronistically appears, thanks to Cherry Audio, and I have to say, I am enjoying it very much. Extremely thorough design.

When I first played Polymode, I got so into it that I lost track of time. The preset banks are full of the classic, the unexpected, and instantly inspiring. Plus, it has the perfect compliment of excellent-sounding effects. It's tough to stop playing it!

Back to the future! I had one of the first Polymoogs to be imported into the UK, I thought it sounded fantastic, but was incredibly fragile. Cherry Audio have revisited hallowed ground and recreated a mega synth! Especially brilliant for atmospheric pads, the key I think is the Resonators, the slightest tweak and Polymode comes to life in any mix. This synth sounds amazing through my studio monitors, definitely a new favorite!
