XILS Lab has once again dug into the synth museum and done its usual spectacular job of emulating every parameter of the RSF PolyKobol Analog synthesizer, somehow faithfully capturing its most stunning feature, the continuous morphing oscillator. Only 30 PolyKobol synths were ever produced, and they were introduced at precisely the same time that the Yamaha DX7 dominated the market, so it got lost along the way, and only now have its unique capabilities been harnessed for use in modern recording and sequencing environments.
This alone would set it apart from all the other common analog synth recreations, but it wouldnât be a XILS-lab instrument if it didnt have some innovative and powerfull expression tools on board.
Three different Modulation Matrix tools, including the powerful exclusive PolyMYX (Polyphonic Modulation YX pad ), which makes each note played on the PolyKB unique. The Stereo scene can be controlled by a state-of-the-art Unison mode, combined with the exclusive DynaMYX (Dynamic stereo Modulation YX pad). Get the total control on your Stereo Scene for impressive pads or leads, and even add a little randomness to get sophisticated acoustic spaces. Move the voices through the stereo the scene.
The PolyKB is also equipped with two aliasing-free oscillators with smooth continuous morphing abilities, a 4-pole low pass filter with delicate to full screaming resonance, two syncable multi featured LFOs with advanced modulating features and two ADSR envelopes.
An eight part polyphonic sequencer, with live recording, velocity editing and a sophisticated Step Play mode completes the picture. You can mix all of these features to achieve spectacular instruments, arpeggios or sequences.
