While I do not dispute this forum's ability to instill the GAS, don't think that just because I've been away from the forums for a while that I haven't been keeping up. :smoke:


Oh I believe you... just wanted to tease a little.

Alright. You asked for it.

There are other contenders for "best all time poly". For instance, the Yamaha GX-1 might be such a contender. It has 61 keys. Plus another 61 keys. Plus 37 more keys for your "solo" with ribbon and polyphonic aftertouch. Plus 25 pedal keys.

:wave:

It does seem like that for whatever reason, 88 keys is deemed 27 keys too many for any analog polyphonic or in fact most other "synthy" type of synths. That size is reserved for "digital workstations" and the like. For some reason. :idk:

I mean, I have snippets of things I'm working on and developing - patches, riffs, etc. But nothing "finished" really.

I've always loved how he put his mini in his 8 voice. And what a sound!


I don't think he minded the schlepping, he had crew for that, he didn't like tuning!

Sir while the GX1 SuperCS80 is quite an extraordinary machine, I'm not so sure there are more than three of them :grin:

But the reason I lust after the 8 voice is the thought of playing a poly with individual filters and envelopes on each voice. Oh man I want!

I was just speaking with Mr Teh Suit last week and we were wondering if anybody has put together a new 8 voice. Neither of us had heard of anyone doing that.

I would like to be this person

Well, with a MIDI polyphonic splitter (something like a MIDIPal clone) it shouldn't be too difficult cobble one together if you had a spare $7200.

At least it would probably be more possible than, say, trying to put together an 8 voice Micromac (both in terms of price and in terms of unobtaniumness).

Right on. Obviously discussions like this are not going to be overly worried about cost, if so we'd never mention half the wonderful classics again. But I wasn't even sure if eight of them could be chained together.

I honestly wouldn't think you could make a poly SEM if MIDIPal didn't have its "dispatcher" (read: it takes a polyphonic signal on one channel and splits it to n channels, each with one note), so yeah, it's definitely "esoteric functionality" in a way. Other than MIDIPal, the only other product I know with this functionality built in is Expert Sleeps Silent Way stuff (they did a Poly Microbrute video) and that requires a computer.

It's probably not huge in demand because even a Poly Microbrute would be pretty pricey. Plus, on any non-memory synths (SEM included) you'd have to tune each note. To me this is a strength for getting some very thick sounds, but this also is the sort of "fiddliness" that turns most people off polyphonic modular anything. (Some people lack patience. :tounge: )

The unfortunate thing too with the "cobbled together" approach is that it probably would be a bit messy looking unless you came up with a neat custom cabinet. But, hey, apparently Geddy Lee's tech could do a bang up job of that, so hey, there's precedent.

yeah, but all if that fiddliness is pretty much the point of a system like that. But this poly brute idea seems cool, I have to check it out. I don't consider those things to be pricey.

:thu: oh yeah. Love that custom cab, but I have to say that I've never been as big in looks as I am on function
