Formanta, Polivox @ 05 May 2009, Comments Off on POLIVOKS Early Version

“Up for auction really rare this days one of the early Polivoks synths wich has more fat and aggressive sound than it`s last versions. There is some difference in architecture between first and last produced synths that you can see on pictures.
The Polivoks is the most popular vintage Russian synth made in the early 80’s – it was among the first synthesizers produced in the USSR. It had 2 oscillators with pulse or triangle waves, and 1 noise generator, the levels of which were controlled via the internal mixer. You could also connect an external input (guitar, electric piano etc) for mangling with the Polivoks’ switchable high/low pass filter and LFO.
Polivoks had been produced since 1982 by Formanta electronic factory (one of the biggest at the time); it was sold exclusively in the USSR. Polivoks has its own particular electronic parts, reliable keyboard (49 notes F to E) made in magnetically controlled contacts; synthesis modules consist of independent boards, which is convenient for maintenance. The synthesizer has 2-voices polyphony; each oscillator works with a keyboard note independently; two types of filters – bandpass/lowpass and external input for cutoff control. In addition, Polivoks is housed in an original body of uncommon design with handy controls. Being closed with a cover, the synthesizer turns into a strong aluminum case.
The synth after full professional service and in excellent working condition. All is tested and tuned to specifications. Device also in great cosmetical condition (see actual pictures) with the exception of a bit yellow keys but it`s influence of time. The sound really fat and aggressive!” Auction ended.
