Korg Poly-800 - Stringy padded things (some more patches/presets)

Published on Mar 24, 2019 DreamsOfWires

"I was briefly in possession of another Korg Poly-800 this month, which I only had time to use once, but I created a bunch of mostly string-type sounds, as I was originally aiming to re-record a couple of old uploads (links below):

The Poly-800 was a strange synthesizer; whilst being an 8-voice polyphonic synth (or 4 voices with 2 oscillators per voice) it only had one analog filter shared across all voices, which was limiting, but could produce some interesting musical results.

I'm not sure how much longer I can continue to create content for this channel due to financial circumstances. I've invested a lot of money into the equipment, camera gear, and even a computer to make it possible, for which I've got into a lot of debt. I enjoy doing it, but it has to be financially viable, and though I create these videos for free, my ambition was to make it pay for itself somehow, at least partially, via music sales, Patreon, or manufacturer sponsorship, but after almost 10 years that hasn't happened and my views and subscription rate is dwindling. In the meantime, if you can help share knowledge of my channel and music to others it would be greatly appreciated. As always though, thank you so much for your comments and encouragement over these past years - I cannot stress enough how much it has meant to me.

Geek stuff: recorded using AUM on an iPad, Audio Damage EOS2 reverb, via an iConnectAUDIO4 interface. Filmed on a LUMIX GH4 and GX7."
