Synthstuff Korg Poly 61

Its studio gearfreak time again…this time we obtained a Korg Poly 61 an extremely cheap and spartan analogue poly synthesizer from 1982 – Its very simple: 2 oscillators, 1 Filter, 1 Envelope, 1 LFO and even those have very sparse Parameter ranges (some stuff like resonance only 7 steps, keyboard tracking only on or off!) but despite that its got a very nice saturated pleasant sound from wobbly futtering fattness to fast envelope snappyness this is pure no-nonsense analogue power!

 There is also an arpeggiator, a chord memory and the cool Korg analogue Joystick (this one has the springs removed so it stays in place after you moved it: This basicly gives you a second LFO!) Other cool stuff: Red and Green L.E.D display

The original wood color before I changed it to a more natural one.

Check out this little multitracked demo mp3 of pure Poly 61 sounds (with some extra delay from the mixer):
