Lambda Synthetics PolyPulse Now on Kickstarter

"Lambda Synthetics today launches their Kickstarter campaign for the PolyPulse, the algorithmic performance workstation which combines the playfulness and performability of physical instruments with the precision and sonic detail of digital music production techniques into a single package!"

PolyPulse workflow overview

You might remember Lambda's PolyPulse from SUPERBOOTH23. They are now on Kickstarter seeking funding.

Details captured for the archives:



The PolyPulse is an algorithmic performance workstation which combines the playfulness and performability of physical instruments with the precision and sonic detail of digital music production techniques into a single package!

Its 5 tracks each have an algorithmic sequencer, a polyphonic sound engine of your choice, customizable audio effects chain and morphing touch pad. The algorithmic sequencer allows you to easily create long evolving rhythms and melodies. With the touchpads you can fluently morph between four presets per track to create expressive and dynamic changes in sound and texture.

The PolyPulse has four audio inputs which can be sampled, and has eight audio outputs allowing for various routings including individual outputs per track or spatialized multi-speaker setups. It can be synced using MIDI, sample accurate clock signals and it even talks Open Sound Control. MIDI can be used to control sequence synthesizers and CC messages morph sounds on your favorite synthesizer module!

Key features

The PolyPulse can already do a lot! In the following section we're outlining what the current firmware is capable of, but we hope to be adding features in the years to come! Algorithmic sequencer

With the PolyPulse you create rhythms using an algorithmic sequencer controlled by a set of parameters. This allows you to quickly create a variation on a groove by turning just a single knob. Melodies are created using 'note lists'. When a note is triggered by the sequencer, it picks a pitch from the note list and sends that to the sound engine. Due to the separation between rhythms and melodies you can mix and match to try out new combinations and to discover wonderful sequences.

Morphing and mixing

With the touchpads you can have expressive control over all sound engine and audio effects parameters. On each corner of a touchpad a sound can be stored. These sounds can be modified on-the-fly, or prepared beforehand and stored in the project.

Each track also has a dedicated volume knob and effects sends knob. The effects send can be routed internally, or you can send signal to your favorite external effects processor!

SUPERBOOTH 2024: Lambda Synthetics - PolyPulse


video upload by sonicstate

"At Superbooth 2024 we caught up with Lambda Synthetics and Ward showed us the latest iteration of the PolyPulse. A lot has been going on with the PolyPulse since Superbooth 2023, work has been done on the firmware, the Kickstarter campaign launched in November 2023, the first batch of PolyPulses have been financed, and Ward told us that they would start building them as soon as they get home from Superbooth!

PolyPulse has a 5-track algorithmic sequencer, a polyphonic sound engines, a customizable audio effects chain and morphing touchpad. The algorithmic sequencer allows you to easily create long evolving rhythms and melodies. With the touchpads you can fluently morph between four presets per track to create expressive and dynamic changes in sound and texture.

PolyPulse Pre-order price: 1,999 Euros

Superbooth 2023: Lambda Synthetics - PolyPulse


video upload by sonicstate

"We spoke to Ward from Lambda Synthetics about their new product, PolyPulse, which is a live performance workstation. It follows unconventional and algorithmic routes that offers five tracks, each with a polyrhythmic sequencer on one side digital synthesis on the other. Currently, the digital synth has FM and additive synthesis, and several forms of sampling, but more will be added in the future. The sequencer is based on polyrhythms, mixing time intervals which combine to create complex rhythms and melodies, while the touchpads on each track provide expression while on stage.

PolyPulse is currently in the production prototype stage, and there is still a lot of software to be done. It is expected to be released in Q3 or Q4 of this year. External integration can be achieved using clock signals for modular gear, and there are eight balanced outputs on the back. Poly Pulse has a sampling engine that can create new melodies using pitch-tracked bass samples, a drum synthesizer, and various synthesis engines that can have up to 20 tracks of polyphony depending on synthesis engine.

Price: TBC

PolyPulse: ambient with FM and reverb


video upload by Lambda Synthetics

"Hey 💛, I'm working on assignable per-voice modulation and I recorded a quick jam with the FM sound engine and a few modulators.

In this video you can hear a basic FM patch with a modulator and a carrier. I've assigned an LFO to the modulator's ratio, and I've assigned a random number generator (that triggers on the start of a note) to the FM amount.

I'm manually triggering notes on the built-in keyboard and with my right hand I'm changing the LFO frequency and depth. Due to the random number generator assigned to the FM amount, each voice has a different random FM amount resulting in notes with a brighter and darker timbre. The sound engine is then passed through the PolyPulses built-in reverb with a good amount of decay!

Superbooth 2024 is almost upon us. Come see and play with the PolyPulse yourself at booth Z250!"
