More interesting though is perhaps to read the comments to this video, and I must say I am tempted to agree:
Doesn’t sound like a Polychrome to me. What was used for reference? Seriously. Maybe one of the demo tracks features something a bit like the choir section. Osc sync – what? How about recreating the paraphonic envelope? Isolate each section for a demo. If it’s good, the sound itself will sell it alone – not polished tracks with other instruments. Where’s the chorus ensemble effect – the phaser – tremolo? All hallmarks. Couldn’t hear any attempt at that.
This video shows the Farfisa Polychrome played with a Roland DEP-5 FX processor for delay effects.
The Farfisa Polychrome from 1979 is one of the rarest Farfisa keyboards. It is a flexible string synthesizer / string ensemble with a very characterful, musical sound.
It has a PERCUSSIVE section, a STRING section, a ENSEMBLE section and a VOCAL CHORUS section. The most sections have VCF cutoff / resonance controls. It has a great phaser (with SPEED, EMPHASIS and TREMOLO controls), a noise generator, single outputs, an external input jack (for external signals, which can be treated with the Polychrome’s chorus and phaser) and a lot more… It even has aftertouch! And it’s fully polyphonic, too…
