    - 4 Voice Synth Lite II
    - 2 oscillators per voice (sawtooth / square + 1 sub oscillator

    - 2 ADSR envelopes

    The MFB-Polylite is a synthesis module 4 voice controll via MIDI.
    Each of the four parts has 3 oscillators, one low-pass filter 24 dB (VCF) and an amplifier (VCA).
    Polylite has 100 memory areas for immdiat recall parameters (except the Gnral agreement).

    The MFB-Polylite is a synthesis module 4 voice controll via MIDI.
    Each of the four parts has 3 oscillators, one low-pass filter 24 dB (VCF) and an amplifier (VCA).
    Polylite has 100 memory areas for immdiat recall parameters (except the Gnral agreement).
    The edition is via MIDI control via the free editor or better from a Synth Lite II because Polylite has no way to directly control.

    The two oscillators can provide a sawtooth wave (enhanced version) or a square wave. The OSC 1 has ring modulation and OSC 2 of a pulse. The wave of OSC 2 can be realigned on OSC 1 (hard sync).

    The agreement can be selected from 4 ', 8' or 16 ', with a dsaccord CSO 2 of plus or minus one octave.
    The sub-oscillator is 32 cal on the octave 'and gnre carredsaccordable a wave. The filter is a lowpass slope of 24 dB with rsonance and self-oscillation. The cut-off threshold (cutoff) can be modulated by several sources. The VCA and VCF possdent an ADSR (attack, depreciation, maintenance, relchement). Decay and Release can be coupls or discocis (the Release is then dsactiv. A supplmentaire modulation is achieved by an LFO (Low frquence oscillator) function with "one single shot" ( one shot). The LFO can modulate frquence, the pulse width of OSC2 or filter (cutoff).

    Portamento can be rgl three diffrente speeds cheeks notes 'legato'.

    Recognized MIDI messages are Note On / Off, Pitch Bender, and Mod-Wheel Control (? Ed).
    The vlocit can modulate the VCF or VCA.

    Programming new sounds and ideally carried out from a SynthLite II. An editor for Windows is supplied free.

    The dimensions of Polylite: 172 x 125 x 35 mm. A power supply (external) is provided.

    USE

    This is a can not directly control. Remains to be seen if the PC editor is convenient ...

    SONORITS

    The demos should bientt be available at MFB.

    The Polylite is a plastic box without potentiometers that features a hybrid synthesizer analog / digital (oscillators digital / analog filter 24 dB) with 4 voice polyphony.

    It has a mono output, a mono input, one MIDI input and output in 5-pin DIN which, using an adapter, can separate the output of the 4 oscillators.

    Since it is without controls, it must be edited via MIDI, either with software or with any MIDI controller configured correctly.

    It features 99 user memories for storing presets.

    UTILIZATION

    Obviously, the use is anything but intuitive because the stakes of this machine is to provide a semi-polyphonic analog to a floor price. So the whole interface has been sacrificed.

    The machine comes with a manual more than short ... But anyone accustomed to the synthesis find it very quickly, once you've set up a score of knobs on your preferred controller, the editing is done quickly and easily.

    SOUNDS

    The sound is very warm but not aggressive. The digital oscillators give her a little lofi to the bike, there is the matter and it makes all the difference. The machine is a bit rather weak in the bass but that's not what we asked.

    Do not expect a range of sound that could have a digital synthesizer, on the other hand, the Polylite has a warmth I can not get my Virus. You can hear the subtle imperfections sound that gives it a decidedly vintage character.

    The filter is very effective without being aggressive. It fits easily into self-oscillation for some nice bleeps.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I tried a few analog polyphonic, but between their size and price, nothing was the right solution for my use.
    Even if my Access Virus gives me satisfaction, there are things that digital can not reproduce ... That is why the Polylite seems to be an ideal companion. Compact set in the middle of a longer included, it marries well with his playmates
    I highly recommend this machine for traveling musicians who are looking for sounds that have character and want to warm up their set. The pair well with a mono chubby (Moog Little Phatty, Waldorf Pulse) gives excellent results.
