Dave Smith Instruments Poly Evolving Pads

Published on Nov 7, 2019 synthlegends

"Demo of evolving Pad sounds from the DSI Poly Evolver Keyboard polychained with the Poly Evolver Rack, so it has 8 voices.

I programmed a set of around 60 Pads, some from scratch, some from presets and also some from third party banks.

The Evolver series are known to be harsh sounding. The Curtis Filter Chips are quite aggressive, but you can achieve very warm tones and the instrument is capable for evolving pads thanks of the two LP Filter you can set individually in the stereo field.

Also with the 3 tap delay you can program chorus effects and take usage of the 4 LFO plus the third envelope and the step sequencer.

Even the digital OSC can sound very warm, when you use in a subtle way the Ring Modulator or FM effect.

The Synthesizer has a very big dynamic range, so the sounds are so dynamic in this video, that the basic volume is quit low. Also I took often usage of hard panned voices in the stereo field, so the sounds are really very much moving/evolving.

I didn't use any mastering, addional effects or euqalizer in this video. Everything is recorded life from the two synthesizers out from the PER mixer with two channels directly to the audio interface.

Thanks for watching and if you have any questions don't hesitate to contact me in the comments below. Cheers."
