Dave Smith Intros New Version Of The Poly Evolver Keyboard

Dave Smith Instruments has released an updated version of its Poly Evolver synthesizer.

The new version boasts 60 potentiometers among its complement of 78 rotary controls.

“The response to the pot edition of the Prophet ’08 has been overwhelmingly positive,” according to company founder Dave Smith, “so we decided to extend that functionality to the Poly Evolver, as well.”

The Poly Evolver's potentiometers allow the full range of a knob’s values to be accessed in a single turn of about 300 degrees. That simplifies filter sweeps and other more performance-oriented gestures.

A kit with potentiometer-equipped panel boards is available to convert older Poly Evolvers.

Pricing and Availability

The updated Poly Evolver Keyboard is available now with an MSRP of $2,899.00 and an MAP of $2,599.00. The conversion kit requires nothing more than a screwdriver for installation and is available directly from DSI for $399.00 or factory installed for $449.00.
