Check out the Polysex page for more information.
We will post a video describing the installation procedure step by step soon. There will also be workshops in Berlin. If interested contact us.
Information about the Polysex mod is now online!
Launches 24.8.2013. There will be a presentation and workshops in the next couple of weeks, dates will be announced here.
Just a quick post showing you the Polysex PCBs and front panels which arrived today.
Here black knobs were chosen, but it is perfectly possible to use the original Polysix knobs.
The front panel is black anodized aluminum with blue and white offset printing. Note that the blue color matches that of the Polysix very well.
I thought I let you know what I’ve been doing since the last update. I worked a lot on my Polysix mod and will finally be able to sell it as a kit soon.
There are some sound demos at the end of this article which should give you an impression, of some (but definitely not all) the new sounds which are achievable with this mod.
There are two different mods which can both be used at the same time:
The kit will include a PCB, all necessary parts and a front panel which you can use to mount the controls onto your Polysix. The front panel is made of fully anodized and printed aluminum and done in Polysix style (see images above and below). Instead of original Polysix knobs the kit will only contain similar ones, but it is possible to use Polysix knobs (one can find used ones). There will be a version with the PCB fully assembled and tested,too.
No! The Polysex mod was designed as a kit, which means I tried to make it as easy as possible to assemble and install it. You will need basic soldering and metal work skills, but nothing you can’t learn by watching half an hour of a soldering tutorial on youtube. You will have to drill some holes into the metal casing of the Polysix, but precision is not needed because everything is covered by the front panel and will look very nice.
At the moment I am working on collecting all the parts in larger quantities, getting the front panel and the PCBs produced, writing a manual and setting everything up nicely so you will get a good product and have a fun time 🙂
Please don’t hesitate to ask them, I will answer and update this little FAQ.
None of the sound examples make use of the effect section of the Polysix (or any external effects)
