Russian Polivoks Synth For Ableton
Design the Media has released a new Ableton Live Pack designed by Tristan Héau, with a collection of more than 300 samples from the Russian Polivoks synth. They say that the sounds were carefully recorded, using an accurate tuner and Apogee preamps in order to catch that raw, nasty, analog sound from this eastern beast.
Tristan also created specific drum kits, Simpler presets (made from simpler and sampler live instruments) and custom instruments Racks (with esoteric macro knobs to be mapped to your favorite midi controller).
A spokesperson told us, “In the project folder under you will find all the samples organized by category. For example, you will find any possible combination of perfectly tuned oscillators of the polivoks – sine alone, sine with square, sine with triangle etc. All recorded waveforms were made with a tuner so that this material can be used more easily for sampling. You’ll be very surprised to hear how those analog waveforms sound. Then, they are some more classic waveforms – bass and lead sounds, all kind of noise sources, great feedback tones, and more exotic recording made while pushing this analog monster into his limit – hi rez, filter sweeps, unstable patches and more.”
