A 6-voice polyphonic analog synthesizer
with a 61-key keyboard
. Released in 1981
The PolySix is essentially a true polyphonic version of the Mono/Poly
, with added 32-patch memory
and a tape interface
for more storage space
. The modulation capabilities
aren't as flexible
as with the Mono/Poly, due to having only one LFO
. But the 6 VCO
s can be played in the unison
mode to create a really thick monophonic
used in the PolySix include SSM 2044
as the VCF
and SSM 2056
as the ADSR envelope

- 32 programs stored in memory allow the user to create his own sounds for instantaneous recall at the push of a button.
- Full edit capabilities allow the user to make temporary changes to any program, and to move programs about in memory.
- Rapid, 8-second Cassette Tape Interface capabilities provide unlimited additional program storage, allowing you to create program libraries for later use.
- Both Unison and Poly modes, to create incredibly fat six-VCO soloing and bass sounds as well as versatile six voice polyphonic sounds.
- Built-in full featured Arpeggiator, with 3 selectable patterns and ranges, and with automatic "Latch" mode.
- Chord Memory memorizes intervals and chords, to produce exciting parallel harmonies by depressing single keys. Memorized chords can be arpeggiated as well. Hold sustains notes and chords indefinitely.
- Programmable Modulation and Chorus/Ensemble effects create rich, fat sounds.
- Lightweight 11.5kg instrument with 5-octave, 61 note keyboard plus Pitch Bend and Mod Wheels, for expressive playing.
