Sounds from the PolyKB III v3.5, and why one might want to demo it. Sometimes sounds speaks better than words.

Cool track ! :tu:
I love this synth. PolyKB II and Minisyn'X are among my top 5 favorites.

Hope the the toggle issue will be solved soon. One can toggle the new preset browser by hitting arrow left / right. However for me it just opens the browser. Can't get back to the main panel with the arrow keys.
You can listen to my music HERE and here on YouTube and on Spotify

PolyKB III v3.5. Bugs v3.5 : Current state.( When cumulated, these bugs seem to now affect less than 0.2% of users)

1/ Crash Live 10 : Please update to Live 10.1. It should fix the problem
2/ No GUI problem : Beta 3.5.1 seems to have fixed problems. Not 100% sure. No more affected systems are reportedatm.
3/ Synsopos/Osx/eLicencer : Restart Daw or Rescan plugins seems to fix problems.

If the above doesn't fix problem(s) for your system, or if you want to get more details and explanations (especially about synsopos driver), please contact directly Xils-Lab.
(Due to the -relative- low number of systems concerned, and the difficulties to get exhaustive feedback, Xils are not sure that the fixes work 100% on all systems)

Hmmm would it be safe to assume that no one on KVR using PolyKB III v3.5 has any of these problems anymore ?

A video about the PATH function, and a few examples showing what you can do with it.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jg59zPbJn_Y

Was talking with a friend last week and comparing Path to ultimate expressive keyboards solutions, and/or several other advanced modulators. With PATH you can do things that are impossible to make even with Roli etc MPE keyboards. (Reverse is of course equally true, Path can't replace a Roli etc)

So $74 at audiodeluxe seems a bargain!

Any non Xils affiliates care to comment on the sound possibilities?
I’m a little over 80’s synths, that’s what’s stopping me pulling the trigger.

Cheers Simmo,
I was at the same point when on Audiodeluxe.

Although I wouldn`t consider myself a synth expert,
after purchase and first impressions I don`t have the feeling to be framed
into a "decade synth" and the range of possible sounds is pretty large-scaled.
Maybe defined by the synth emu itself but not limited too tight.

I think I`ll take the plunge on a similar US shop event with PolyM.

Only thing I`m missing are some contemporary tuts on YT.

I'm still having problems with the latest PolyKB version in Logic Pro X, Mac Mojave.

I can open the plugin but in the view editor I only get controls and just a black box for the cocoa view?

Im sure they’ll love this very layout in Asia. In Asia they read things from right to left, from bottom to top.
