Poly-Ana’s voice architecture is an ambitious combination of the best features and features of well-known analog synthesizers, plus a number of new features (about 185 controllers in total!) That in the past were impossible or very expensive to implement in hardware. But, since Poly-Ana is a purely software product, these limitations do not affect it, and nothing prevented us from developing “the perfect analog synthesizer of your dreams”. In combination with a design in a classic style and spaced separately parameters, with large convenient knobs and switches, similar to real controls of iron synthesizers, in combination with the absence of hidden multi-level menus and the display of each controller directly in the interface; Poly-Ana is a real software alternative to hardware analog synthesizers.
Poly-Ana is finally here! Get ready for a new experience in virtual analog synthesis! Poly-Ana uses a different approach than most other VA soft-synths which we feel delivers a sound more authentic to the early analog synths that inspired her features. This “brute-force” method admittedly requires more processing power than other common techniques, but is a far truer model of the functioning of real analog instruments. If you obsess over the quality of your sound like we do then you won’t mind using a bit more CPU power to help get you closer to that real analog sound; a sound that so many other VA synths fall too-far short of. (Note that Poly-Ana also offers a Quality option to reduce CPU usage during performance-time at the expense of sound quality.) Poly-Ana’s voice architecture is an ambitious combination of all the best features of the famous analog classics, plus a few new features (totaling 208 controls, plus a full 5 octave velocity sensitive virtual keyboard!) which, while possible back in the day, would have been prohibitively expensive to implement in hardware. But as a software-only product, Poly-Ana doesn’t face these limitations, and we held nothing back in designing our “ultimate analog dream synth”. Combine this with a classic styled design that puts every parameter a single click away, with large, easy to grab knobs and switches that behave like the real-world items; and with no hidden drill-down menus so that each and every control is prominently displayed out where you can see it; Poly-Ana offers a true alternative in software synthesis.
We also included L’il Poly-Ana in the release.
Additional banks will be copied to the installation folder.
Windows users can decorate the synthesizer by copying a PNG file with a resolution of 1000×750 and naming it “Poly-AnaBG.png” to the dll folder.
The previously used crack did not work well on some machines. We changed the hacking method, now there should be fewer problems.
