DSI Poly Evolver vs Alesis Micron
This is a comparison of Dave Smith’s Poly Evolver keyboard ($2,700) and Alesis’ Micron ($399). The Synths sound remarkably similar. The DSI has a brassy character while the Micron is more subdued and plastic but these differences are very subtle. You will notice immediately that the Poly Evolver lacks low end and cannot re-trigger its envelopes like the digital Alesis. The differences were more apparent to me while watching this video. Overall the sounds are practically identical which was pretty surprising to me.
