Beyond The Pleasure Principal
PolyM differentiates itself from other synths by having extraordinary features and a unique sound.
A few factors were key to the creation of the iconic sound of the PolyM’s glorious ancestor, the Polymoog synthesizer. The first step was to duplicate the two T.O.D. (Top Octave dividers) Oscillators that were originally utilized to produce a large amount of polyphony, each with PER NOTE Pulse Width Modulation (unique at the time). The distinctive, gritty 24dB Ladder Filter, the necessary acoustic Filter Bank, and ultimately a rich, character-filled Resonator Bank came in second and third place, respectively.
The Polymoog synthesizer was researched for more than two years. It persuaded XILS-Lab that the Top Octave Divider Oscillators were crucial in capturing the actual essence of the sound. They therefore spent months developing a novel approach to simulate the oscillators of the Polymoog. They succeeded in creating a Divide Down algorithm that highlights the Polymoog's authentic sound.
The legendary Vox Humana sound, popularized by Gary Numan in his song Cars, can now be played by anyone with Xils PolyM. It is now possible to deliver that authentic vintage sound you would never have found without using the original classic synth itself.
