Korg’s Polysix, a six-voice analog polyphonic synthesizer, went on sale in 1981. While a popular synthesizer of that time was able to produce only five notes simultaneously, the Polysix had six-note polyphony, and its name was an expression of its designers’ pride. iPolysix uses Korg’s proprietary “CMT” (Component Modeling Technology) to simulate the actual electronic circuits of the original unit, perfectly reproducing the original Polysix.
Polyseq is a polyphonic step sequencer that provides up to 64 steps, newly developed in order to take full advantage of the Polysix’s capabilities. Polyseq provides a different operating feel than a conventional piano-roll sequencer or even a step sequencer; it’s a new yet somehow familiar experience, as if you were retracing the evolution of electronic musical instruments. Don’t miss the opportunity to try out this perfect match; the Polysix+Polyseq.
KORG iPolysix has been created as a professional music production tool. In addition to two Polysix units, it provides a six-part drum machine, and an analog mixer that’s reminiscent of the KMX-8 mixer. You’ll have everything you need to produce great sounding music. Surrounded by analog equipment, you’ll imagine that you’ve time-traveled back to the early ’80s.
The large multi-touch display shows two Kaoss Pads which you can control using both hands to perform music. This enables creative performance even for those who have no musical knowledge. These Kaoss Pads have been customized for iPolysix to allow not only single-note performance, but also chordal playing with just one finger; a new experience made possible only by a combination of new and old technology, the Polysix+Kaoss Pad.
Polyshare is a function for KORG iPolysix users to share their songs. It’s based on SoundCloud, the song sharing service favored by music creators. You can make your song available to iPolysix users around the world simply by uploading the song directly from the app. You can download and upload remixable tracks. It’s easy to enjoy remixing and collaboration with users around the world.
