Farfisa Polychrome Sampled

Synth Magic creates a new Kontakt instrument based on the 1970's synth      21/02/12

Synth Magic has released Polychrome for Kontakt 4.2.4 and above including Kontakt 5 (Mac and PC). They tell us that this Kontakt instrument, based on a very rare 1970's Synthesiser is fully programmable from the front panel just like a real Polychrome and is really simple to use. A Synth Magic PR person told us, "The Polychrome is a synthesiser composed of various sections such as Percussion, Strings, Ensemble and Vocal synth. We sampled every section and added lots of new twists along the way. The original machine has 3 vocal synth sections, but you can only select one at a time to be played. Not so with our version, all 3 vocal sections can play at the same time-It is a very beautiful sounding instrument. We have added lots of extra features such as extra filters, lfo's, filter envelopes and a full effects section which includes auto pans for each synth section which creates great stereo sweep effects. Each section of the Polychrome has been sampled using high quality converters for a true authentic sound."
