Polivoks Featured in Franz Ferdinand's Lucid Dreams?

Uploaded on Feb 4, 2009 Cameron Meldrum

This one came in on the AH email list as an example of the Polivoks sound, specifically the filter. 4:40 on is worth a listen to get a feel for the synth. According to the poster: "Sounds mostly LP setting for the bassline throughout, but a BP sweep at 4:40 layering into LP output panning around in stereo. You definitely want to wear headphones on this one"

I don't own a Polivoks but I of course have heard plenty of demos, and I do have an Industrial Music Electronics, Harvestman Polivoks eurorack filter and it definitely goes there. See the demo by Dave Skipper below. This is one of my favorite aggressive filters. It and the Frostwave Resonator (based on the early KORG MS20 filter), can strip the paint off of walls with a bit of resonance.

General video description from YouTube:
"This is the official album version of track 10 from Franz Ferdinand's third album: 'Tonight: Franz Ferdinand'. You can buy the album from iTunes here:"
