Quasimidi PolyMorph
already quoted below


thoroughly buggy, n have not necessarily been done, and the decline of the brand also


cold, no dynamic


if I were to grant the prize for the most lame synth, c is to him that it would, given the odds, it's really spend the money for nothing, there is very better for half the cost in time, knowing that he n there is no sav, happy to have found someone selling one for the raven and the revolution are all better meme, but it remains a real onion, really disappointed if I was offered the meme would use it I m ​​not sorry for those who speculate further on this bike

Quasimidi PolyMorph
A synthe size for live, all the parameters from the effects are accessible from the front.

A section of CSOs such as "Virtual Analog", full of waveforms ranging from very high-pitched at super acid, which can be converted into "noise" Great music with the sync feature.
Two other sections are CSOs that PCM. In fact they make most often smooth and thick at the VA waveform, there's the Moog, ground synthetic violin, and choir, a sawtooth ...

Filters are a kill even if I had a hard time understanding the concept at the beginning (filters in series or parallel), filters sharp as the 309 in much better. In addition it is possible to add a disto these filters is well Cracra without hurting zoreilles. Definitely a very strong point of this synth.

Two envelope filters and an amp envelope for the three waveforms, these envelopes are a bit "soft" rules but they can be quite surprising. There is no envelope assigns the pitch waveforms but this function is greatly simplified in the OSC section.

The LFOs are very funny even if not very fast, we can very easily get such type of sonoritees chiptune with the FM section.

I do not really use effects, I have a DEDICATED rack that. Apart from the distortion that I put all the sauces. Both the distortion of the filter is for "cradifier" sound, as the distortion generally be used to magnify the sound (like the 309).

The sequencer is very complete in its way, we get results very quickly with this control system with knobs. You can play with three different parameters on the same line, and it is possible to choose any parameter ... delirium.
You can set the length of the notes, the length of the line pattern, scroll the notes forward, backward, random ...


This is a synth that can be forward or back in a mix, it can do a lot of things actually.

it can also be used to filter a sound outside, very interesting ...

Demos (very good for my taste) are at the Kraftwerk, but it does not just ca.


Ah, the sounds ...

It's not thick and warm like a virus, it's not as cold as my digital Monomachine ... is ... the VA has Quasimidi. For example waveforms VA have a little grain on the 309, but a thousand times better. There are so many parameters to traffic that can do many things, and the filters are so surprising that the results do not always correspond to what I expected ...

I do not like the envelopes too, a little too soft for my taste.

The sounds of this synth can be very varied, it can act as low water table, the chiptune, acid line ... while having his personality ... difficult to define ... But one thing he is not in the "fat" and "smooth"


Took me a while to love my Poly, but because of a sequencer difficult to tame than its sounds. I was amazed during my first contact with him, the demos are great. I had trouble after a blackmail him, but only because of its sequencer, y'avait a click a busted for sure ... I think it takes time to get a machine as unusual.

Beware the machine is buggy, I have the latest version of the OS 2.01f
I use it as a slave, and is a sync all my other machines without problem. Its internal sequencer will do its job when asked to play its own sounds, by the sequencer will play against too many notes expendeur an external sound. It seems that can be treated very easily, personal ca does not bother me. It is the only bug that I grew identified thus far.

One last thing, the machine is a finished product even if the designer has decided not to address this problem of sequencer Bugge ... he could settle before attacking it's showtime ...

Everything has been said already. The possibilities are there!


Relatively simple given the number of knobs for editing. And when you want editor in detail, there just a few sub-menus to go, it's pretty simple.


As has been said, if you like old Kraftwerk, this rack is for you!
And above all we must take time to tame the beast to arrive to the sounds you're looking! For bass and pads, it's really excellent! I used it on all my albums (5 total) and even when the gear revolves around the Polymorph grain retains its inimitable! There are bass sounds (deaf, and with punchy distortion) that I never got to imitate with any other synth.
It has often overwhelmed Quasimidi have sound too strong but what is the value of a machine is just to have that special one not found elsewhere to complete its range of sounds! If we want to make soup, just use some software plug-ins (I does anyone here, but I mean the sound of a machine hardware will never be comparable to the soft, that's why many people come back to synths).


I bought it when it was released when Quasimidi closed ... I regret that Quasimidi have not had time to leave the nucleus, the synth version with the power of four polymorphic!
I for 7 seven years and I always use, like the grain especially for completing a sound palette access, waldorf, novation, roland, etc., etc.

Difficult to find nowadays, but if you find a machine with a grain noise modeling in the style analog + wavetable, go for it
As for the quote of OCCAZ to 400 euros, it is widely underestimated ...
Quasimidi ... I miss Waldorf made his comeback, so why not Quasimidi!
