Dave Smith Poly Evolver Analog/Digital Keyboard Synthesizer

The Poly Evolver analog/digital keyboard synth by Dave Smith is the king of the Evolver line of performance synthesizers. This 4-voice polyphonic synthesizer features a 5-octave, semi-weighted velocity- and aftertouch-sensitive keyboard, pitch and mod wheels, tons of knobs and switches all in a clean and intuitive layout giving musicians unparalleled real-time control.

Each voice on this keyboard is a complete Evolver offering 4 oscillators per voice, 2 analog and 2 digital. With a true stereo signal path, the Poly Evolver has a separate Curtis low-pass analog filter in each channel for each voice and each voice has its own independent effects including feedback, delay, distortion and more.

The 78 knobs and 59 switches featuring clocked, pulsing LED’s to keep you in the groove, facilitating the highly accessible and intuitive operation of this synth. Meanwhile, the hardwood end-panels will keep you grooving on this fine looking instruments appearance. Each voice has an independent 16 x 4 step sequencer syncing everything perfectly to MIDI. In program mode all 4 voices play the same sound while in combo mode voices can be custom-allocated and each voice can respond to a different MIDI channel. Multiple Poly Evolvers can be daisy-chained for increased polyphony.
