The original Polysix was my first polyphonic analog synthesizer and a huge part of my early sound as an artist. The new iPolysix is a brilliant recreation that is both authentic and loaded with useful new features. Pattern 7 of "McFooty" (at 1:04 in the audio) really shows the warmth and lushness of this app.

Great IMPRESSIVE little program, does much more than appears on the surface. Because of my background in live performance this was initially a challenge for me as the sequencer works in step time. My first impression of the limited control parameters was not to expect too much, but shortly after using iPolysix I realized how much fun this would be with results coming quickly and easy. The quality of the sounds are incredible! I will use my iPad in the studio just to access iPolysix alone. Having KORG KRONOS myself, I'm used to big sounds and professional quality, with just a few tracks it's possible with iPolysix to create a huge sound that is 100% authentic to the original. I really love iPolysix which should be made into a stand-alone program for Mac and PC. It was a pleasure to be involved in this project, thank you Korg!

To present a good iPolysix sound in my demo, I went for a wind synth sound and also a pulse width based sound, with a wide open cutoff and a little bit of resonance in SYN 1. Both sounds use six voices on UNISON mode. In SYN 2, I used a nice spread sound by utilizing the ENSEMBLE effect in POLY mode. Since iPolysix supports CoreMIDI, I tried to play it with a KORG microKEY in the performance video. It's always fun to try to challenge yourself every now and then!

Subdued Noise is a track which was completely conceived through the process of creating sounds in iPolysix. Decidedly downtempo, with a touch of 80's-style drum hits, the song morphs to a double-time, more "drum and bass-esque" track to further show versatility. To make the track as multi-layered as possible, I resorted to using a drum track for the bass line - opening up the two synth parts for the other textures. There's also lots of modulation going on; from filters to sends to effect types. I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as I enjoyed writing it!

Focusing on the available polyphony of the original Polysix was a big part of creating my demo for iPolysix; utilizing a lot of chording, etc. Since there are six voices available per synth, I found it a pleasure to use external keyboards to play in notes. Although the individual components of the synthesizer are rather simple, combined they are quite powerful, and offer a very unique sound. Adding to that power is the fact that almost all parameters, including effects, can be automated. This feature is useful for not only synth sounds, but also notes. For example, in the middle of the song, triplets and sextuplets were entered for the solo by automating the arpeggiator.

RetroFunkLounge shows the fascinating iPolysix in two ways at the same time - as a vintage synthesizer rediscovering the early 80ies as well as a production tool for todays lounge music. RetroFunkLounge is actually a mix of 80s funk and todays lounge music. All the presets I made with the Korg App are really timeless, I like the chord memory function, the deep and warm sounding pads and the very easy handling of iPolysix.

PATTERN 17-22 are just analog synth sounds. I really like having MG assigned to slowly make VCF changes, little by little. I also like having the ability to have realtime detailed parameter changes, for example where the chord is changed to a wobble bass in PATTERN 13. Although one example, I think that this functionality can be used in a number of different ways.

Creating the iPolysix dubtechno demo 'Submarine Drift' was a very relaxing experience to me. The synthesizer does a great job on deeply filtered dub chords. I placed them in 64 step loops and played around with the excellent sounding delay and reverb effects. Prior to this composition I had no experience with the KORG Polysix yet, but I found my way into a diverse landscape of sounds very quickly, from distant ghost sounds to close fuzzy guitars.
