Hi all. I have to say that I am so deeply impressed by the Sequencer of this Unit! There is so much in this machine ! Ok, let's go: U have 3 Oscillators with different Waves (1&2 Syncable), Highpass- and Lowpass-Filters (wich u can switch between seriell or parllel in 12 or 24db), ADSR-Envelopes for VCA, HI and LOW filters on the front, all the Lfo-Stuff, lots of memory (u can store Sequences, sounds and "setups", wich is like Snapshots of EVERY ! parameter, each with 8 different Transpose and mutig settings), but the best is the sequencer. You have 4 parts. Each of them u can make a different sequence with a different sound of course and resolutionlike 1/4 or 1/32. Each sequence of u can say what direction to be played (forward, backward or random). Each Sequence u can say how long to be (1-8 steps or 1-16 steps or 1-10 or whatever). For each Sequence u have 4 "Lines". The first is for Pitch (as u can see above the first knob), the other 3 u can assign any parameter of the Polymorph, and there are a lot (pan, vol, cutoff, resonance, lfo depth or rate, envelope-parametrs, distortion, effects intensity or parameters, osc-waves,...). When u assigned a parameter, lets say filter-Drive, u can edit each steps filter-drive-amount with the knobs above the steps. So, now think bout the endless possibilities u can edit here live. This thing rocks bigtime and i'm afraid to even turn it off because i cant stop. and every time i turn it on i save a Setup, cause this thing sounds GREAT !

only minus: you cant edit a sequence to 32 steps. only 16 steps :( but it still kicks ass. I use it with the 309. Hey what can i say ? I'm blown !

Best choice for Trance, Goa (GMS-Like), Techno, dance/house. Didnt try any other styles, so i cant say how a polka sounds on this one, sorry :D

I can recomand this to Electronic Freaks.

Enjoy the musik,

9c-Vic

This is a dream machine!! Why didnt I get one of these back in 99? Awesome sound sculpting and the raw material is very useable. Definately a keeper. Gotta go play it now!!

This box rocks big time. If you want to listen to a song, where ALL instruments are made with the Polymorph, check out:

http://www.ampfea.org/sln/browse.php?num=2&m_id=1174&type=12

More info on the production techniques is on the site! All sounds, also the drumsounds come from the Polymorph. And check out Ellen Allien's "Send", where most synth sounds (seem to) come from the polymorph, and the voice sounds like it is processed by the Polymorph's distortion. (this is only my speculation, but I know my Polymorph so well, it can only be this synth...)

I LOVE my Polymorph. It's the most insperational synth that I own. It's definitely the most fun machine to play with. I wish Quasimidi was still in business; someone needs to leverage their way of thinking, and build more cool instruments like this.

This machine is like an analog machine that wants to sound digital (not the other way around). I would call it 'Virutal Digital'(VD). How's that for a new generation of synths...
