I like to share my 5 cent because POLY-ANA took me completely by surprise. I bought it more blindly because a user told us on KVR that it has many OSC-modulation options. I couldn´t find much sound demos and so I jumped into cold water...I don´t wanno leave anymore.
I am totally spoiled by many Hardware Analog and Digital Synth I own and by Synth like those from U-He (own them all), ICARUS, LOOM2, ODDITY2, Wolfgang Palms PPG stuff OPX II-Pro, MPowerSYNTH and things like (THE LEGEND).
What makes POLY-ANA different? First of all it simply is different in the most positive meaning. It has a fully analogish but kind of its own sound and it does things with ease other VA can´t do.
I NEVER ever before heard such a great bottom end from a VST. Hard to describe. It is extremly fat and warm at the same time and it can be flowing soft like butter without loosing energy. This alone is a reason to buy. You won´t find that in another VST at least no one I know. The FM sounds fantastic and compared to my hardware DOEPFER it is much nicer because it can sound harsh AND soft. I made severeal sounds in no time which sounds like the ones APHEX TWIN used on his first records. Absolutely astonishing close to real synths. This all comes with a deep modulation "matrix" and two modulation mixers. This thing is semi-modular and it sounds like hell when you screw like mad
You can do amazing things with it and I am asking myself why did I buy the boring THE LEGEND which has absolutely no modulation options? All the features I am missing there, POLY-ANA has to offer and soundwise there are no wishes left cause its so versatile. Most analog emulations or VAs are kind of limited. This is not the case with POLY-ANA. A dream if you are a sound-designer. I will open a new thread for this amazing Synth when I delved further into it because I am wodering myself why "no one" talks about this synth and everybody talks continously about DIVA, Omnesphere and so on. ANA-SYNTH is THAT one synth which fills a big gap and comes as an individual sounding VST with lots of unheard character and thats a great thing.
