Polymode drone demo - Voltage Modular


"Another excellent module for Voltage Modular, from Cherry Audio. Kind of a whole synth actually rather than just one module. It's based on the Polymoog, although it has a lot of added features because it's modular, which means you can throw half a dozen LFOs at the resonators, say, if you would ever feel like doing such a ridiculous thing. But who would ever think of doing something like that anyway?

I put together a fizzing and buzzing and moving around drone patch today. It uses the Polymode module, far too many LFOs, and a reverb. Everything's internal to the Voltage Modular app, with nothing external except for an Arturia Keystep, on which I pressed only two keys for the whole thing. You can of course make much more than drones with the Polymode but as soon as I saw all those control voltage jacks on the resonator I knew what I had to do.

The Polymode module sounds great, is quite useful, and is surprisingly inexpensive. Not many of us will ever get our hands on a Polymoog but the Polymode synth module is certainly within the reach of far more of us.
