Finally the KORG PolySix has been released as a Reason Rack Extension
Korg Polysix for Reason is the latest addition to Propellerhead’s Reason Rack Extensions store. As mentioned before I still feel that the Reason Rack Extensions are pretty hefty in price, ranging from 30-60€ each, personally and before this beauty came along I was most eager to get the Bitspeek, but now I guess that has to wait
The instrument uses Korg’s Component Modeling Technology to model the company’s classic ’80s six-voice analogue synth of the same name.
Along with the features of the original, the Reason version adds 32-voice polyphony, 16-voice unison (with detune/spread function), flexible external modulation settings, MIDI clock synchronization, and a spread function to the features list.
Polysix for Reason is available now from the Rack Extensions Store priced €39.

Korg USA Announces Polysix for Propellerhead’s Rack Extension Plugin Format
MELVILLE, NY, June 21, 2012 – Korg’s original Polysix programmable six-voice polyphonic analog synthesizer was introduced in 1981. With a full-sounding voice structure, classic effects and performance functions, the Polysix became a world-wide hit. Its distinctive string and pad sounds are still often heard to this day.
Now Korg announces the Polysix for Reason, a software version developed for Propellerhead’s new Rack Extension Plugin format for Reason. In addition to faithfully replicating the original sounds, the Polysix for Reason also adds enhancements such as 32-voice polyphony (max), up to 16-voice unison (with detune/spread function), flexible external modulation settings, MIDI clock synchronization, and a spread function that adjusts the spaciousness of the effects. This new functionality brings the classic Polysix up to date for use in modern music production.
The software interface provides reorganized knobs and switches that resurrect the Polysix in a contemporary “rack-mountable” form for intuitive operation and sound-creating versatility.
Polysix for Reason will be available for download at Propellerhead’s web-shop shop.propellerheads.se on June 21st for U.S. $49.00 (additional product information can be found at: www.korg.com/polysixforreason).”
