Talk about carrying on a legacy! Dave Smith of Sequential Circuits fame fused the aggressive analog character of the original Pro One together with the digital oscillators from the Prophet VS with a whole lot of new innovations on top. This is a great synth!!!


After numerous requests for both a rack mount Evolver and for a polyphonic Evolver, a 4-voice Polyphonic Evolver in a 1U rack was the logical choice for Dave Smith's next great synth. The 4 voices of the Poly Evolver are each a complete Evolver, which not only provides backwards compatability with a monophonic Evolver, but also allows a number of cool features to play with. For example, each voice still has its own sequencer which allows for some great wave-sequencing applications by gating sequences polyphonically from the keyboard. Each voice also has its own effects, such as feedback, distortion, and delay, which enables completely independent processing of each voice for a super thick sound.


Overall, the Poly, while retaining all of Evolver's wild capabilities, has emerged with its own personality. Many sounds that just didn't make much sense on the monophonic Evolver really shine when played polyphonically - this will be a real pad-monster machine. The wavesequencing is another. On the other hand, some Evolver sounds are actually too huge to play polyphonically, so I guess it works in both directions.
