Virtual Music Introduces Polivoks Filter for the Waldorf Pulse

Waldorf Pulse + Polivoks Filter – Filter Comparison

via Virtual Music

"The Polivoks Multimode Filter integrated in the Pulse - a Synthesizer on Steroid!

The filter of the Russian Polivoks synthesizer is legendary for its powerful and mangy sound. Nothing in the world is that fat! The new Virtual Music Polivoks Filter Upgrade is an adequate replica. It is a small circuit board, designed for installation in the Waldorf Pulse.

Polivoks + Pulse = A powerful team!
The distinctive aesthetics of the Polivoks filter under the control of a powerful modulation matrix make sonic dreams come true. With relatively little effort, this Filter Upgrade transforms the Pulse into a fantastic sounding analog monster that even outshines some famous vintage synthesizers.

A very powerful Sound
The Polivoks Filter Upgrade sounds like the legendary original. The sound is creamy and powerfully mangy. Higher oscillator levels produce juicy saturation effects. With stronger resonances, the filter begins to scream passionately."


  1. Or, one could obtain a Shruthi-1/Phoenix with Polivoks filter from TubeOhm and run any of your synthesizers through that. If you don't have an actual Polivoks. Just saying.

    1. The Shruti sounds quite different compared with the Pulse demos with the Polivoks filter. Seems to be a great idea. Anyone who has installed that filter yet? Anw feedback is appreciated.
