The Korg Poly61 Sample Pack contains the samples used to create the Korg Poly61 Ableton Instrument pack. This pack is over 120 samples, recorded at 24 bit 96K resolution through Apogee Quartet converters.
The Korg Poly61 is one of the early menu diving analog synths. It was the start of cutting costs on the front end of hardware by removing individual parameters. After several years of digital synths using the same practice, we are finally seeing the consumers get their hands on control back on many new synths.
It may be frustrating to make presets on a Poly61, but once you start digging in it sounds great. The Saw and Square oscillators can get big and present; they will cut right through a mix. On top of that the very fun arpeggiator from the Polysix, and you can make some wild sounds. The filter may not be as strong as the Polysix, but it still sounds great in my opinion.
I was excited to see how this machine would take to sampling, and it did not disappoint.
With this pack you receive over 120 samples, recorded at 24 bit 96K resolution through Apogee Quartet converters. These samples are broken down into 25 preset folders, as each user built preset was multi-sampled.
I hope you enjoy this sample pack! I had a lot of fun working with the Poly61 and I hope you do too!
