Malmö Syltjam 2011 - Pollux Mimi-A & Syltjamsynth

YouTube Uploaded by DevsoundSE on Dec 4, 2011

"Demonstration of the Pollux MiMi-a 6-voice polyphonic analog synthesizer.

Built by Ricard Wanderlöf in 1987.

This amazing synth features 6 voices with two oscillators per voice plus sub-oscillator, controlled digitally by a Z80 processor and lots of home-built logic. Each oscillator has individual envelopes. It has a filter that is based on a design found in the Moog Rogue, it has a mod that allows CV-control of the resonance (the synth is even signed by Bob Moog). It's built entirely on copperless veroboard!

It sounds just amazing! This recording doesn't do it justice!"

"Some videos of the synthesizer that was built during the 3-day synth-jam in Malmö 2011.
It consists of an Arduino with midi-shield, and a switch capacitor filter.

At first it had a nice 4-oscillator super-saw playing monophonically.
Later, 4 note polyphony was added, for a total of 16 oscillators!
At the end of Sunday it also had portamento, volume envelope, oscillator spread and pitchbend! All controlled via MIDI-CC.

Full schematics and source code soon avalible on"
