Analogue Solutions – Polymath

The Polymath is one of the most beautiful analog synthesizers on the current synth market. It’s not cheap, true, but it sounds amazing. And it feels great. This 4-VCO synth has an interesting poly-mode similar to Korg’s classic Mono/Poly (arpeggiator / sequencer and incoming MIDI data can run all 4 VCO’s at a time or cycle through each voice per note)! But the Polymath is far more flexible! It is patchable, has a fantastic multimode VCF, step-sequencer, arpeggiator and spring reverb. Ah … and MIDI plus CV/gate … of course.







The Polymath features:

  • 4x VCO
  • 2x LFO
  • 1x Multimode Filter
  • 2x ADSR
  • Sample & Hold
  • Ring Modulator
  • Noise
  • Multiples
  • Spring Reverb
  • Analogue Sequencer
  • Arpeggiator
  • 4 Chan. MIDI-CV
  • Mixer

“Es genügt, einen Ton schön zu spielen” sagte der Komponist Arvo Pärt im Jahre 2005. Diese Aussage ist ebenso einfach wie ich auch exzellent: Es braucht kein Meer an Tönen, denn entscheidend ist der Klang. Dass so mancher Vintage-Synthesizer der 70er und 80er Jahre teils unerreicht hochwertige Klänge liefert, steht außer Frage. Doch tatsächlich leben wir “heute” in einer nahezu perfekten Zeit. Einerseits hat man – mehr oder weniger – noch Zugriff auf die Vintage Analogen, andererseits wird auch bei Neugeräten die wichtige Komponente des hochwertigen Klanges wieder zunehmend berücksichtigt. Doepfer, Cwejman,, MacBeth, Moog, GRP, Studio Electronics, COTK, John Bowen und andere Hersteller bauen hervorragende Synthesizer, die den “Klassikern” in nichts nachstehen. All diesen (alten wie neuen) “großartigen” Instrumenten ist Great Synthesizers gewidmet. _________________________________________________________ In 2005 composer Arvo Pärt said: “Playing one tone really well is enough”. In other words, it is sufficient to play one tone 'beautifully'. I agree with that. All musical efforts are focused on the sound itself. Although I studied classical music (piano and drums), it’s the electronic sound that inspires me. Synthesizers are the epitome of new sounds and exciting tonal spheres. Today, many companies produce high-quality - excellent! - synthesizers: Doepfer, Cwejman, MacBeth, Moog, GRP,, COTK, Studio Electronics, John Bowen and others. It's their products I'm really interested in ... apart from Vintage Synthesizers, which I have been collecting for 20 years. Subsequent to our former websites Bluesynths and Blogasys, Peter Mahr and I have now created GreatSynthesizers. We hope you like it.
