XILS Lab (http://www.xils-lab.com/) has launched the PolyKB mk II, the recreation of a very polyphonic synthesizer released in the 80’s.

The PolyKB II is a polyphonic subtractive synthesizer based on two waveform morphing, aliasing free oscillators and a self oscillating four poles low pass filter. The oscillators take a large part of the sound of this synthesizer while the filter recreating a standard analog chip of the 80’s (with the help of very complete modulation sections), allows the PolyKB II to create “incredibly warm sounds from gorgeous basses to slowly evolving pads, through aggressive leads and thin crystal keyboards as well as a huge range of incredible special effects that all sound designers will love to use,” according to the folks at XILS Lab.

Through Dec. 19, the new PolyKB II Synthesizer will be sold at introductory price of US$89 (it’s normally $199) or as part of the “Ultimate XILS-Lab bundle” sold during the same period at $189 (normally $398).

The PolyKB II is available with the following formats : Mac OSX 10.3.9 and later : VST, Audio Unit, RTAS (Protools 7.0 and later); Windows XP, Vista and 7 ; VST, RTAS (Protools 7.0 and later). iLok or eLicenser authorizations are available. Also, dongle free demos are available.
