MELVILLE, NY, June 21, 2012 - Korg's original Polysix programmable six-voice polyphonic analog synthesizer was introduced in 1981. With a full-sounding voice structure, classic effects and performance functions, the Polysix became a world-wide hit. Its distinctive string and pad sounds are still often heard to this day.
Now Korg announces the Polysix for Reason, a software version developed for Propellerhead's new Rack Extension Plugin format for Reason. In addition to faithfully replicating the original sounds, the Polysix for Reason also adds enhancements such as 32-voice polyphony (max), up to 16-voice unison (with detune/spread function), flexible external modulation settings, MIDI clock synchronization, and a spread function that adjusts the spaciousness of the effects. This new functionality brings the classic Polysix up to date for use in modern music production.
The software interface provides reorganized knobs and switches that resurrect the Polysix in a contemporary "rack-mountable" form for intuitive operation and sound-creating versatility.
Polysix for Reason will be available for download at Propellerhead's web shop shop.propellerheads.se on June 21st for U.S. $49 (additional product information can be found at: www.korg.com/polysixforreason).
