Synth exploration: POLIVOKS Filter Demo

July 6, 2012 · Posted in Uncategorized 

Here’s  a new video focusing on filters appearing on the Russian Polivoks synth:

It’s a strange synth. But what great filter …. can be switched from low pass to bandpass in an instant. It also posesses two envelopes that can be looped over the attack-decay sections.

I understand that Rammstein use this synth as does Franz Ferdinand.

This is the first of two videos comparing an original Polivoks Filter to one of its many clones.
In this demo, its Blue Lantern’s LM4250 VCF.

Im starting with an open filter… Cutoff at max – level 6, resonance at 0.
I’ll update this later with a more detailed explanation of the controls (for those who cant read Russian).
Modulation is via an LFO on the extreme left and an ADSR envelope.
