Behringer Poly D Analog Polyphonic Synthesizer Standard

Sorry, this item is not available.

An ultra-affordable homage to that iconic synthesizer

The Behringer Poly D polyphonic analog synthesizer lets you freely embrace the past or shape the future with its pure analog signal path. Based on the legendary 1970's analog synth, the Poly D provides stunning vintage tones thanks to authentic VCO, VCF, VCA and ladder filter circuits. With the Poly D, you can switch between monophonic, polyphonic and unison modes to tailor your sound. Use the monophonic setting for expressive leads and basses. Turn to the polyphonic mode to layer lush harmonies and pads. Thicken up any sound with Unison mode by stacking voices on top of each other.

Sculpt Your Sound With Four Flexible VCOs

The Poly D gives you four highly flexible Voltage Controlled Oscillators to sculpt the perfect sound. Oscillators 1, 2 and 3 provide triangular, saw, square and pulse waveforms while OSC 4 features triangular, reverse saw, square and pulse waves. Additionally, all four VCOs can be adjusted across a huge six-octave range for nearly limitless sonic possibilities. This amazing versatility allows you to be as creative as you want.

Shape Your Tone With the 24dB Ladder Filter

At the heart of the Poly D's characteristic sound is its flexible 24dB Ladder Filter. Tweak the cutoff frequency, emphasis and contour controls to find your signature tone. The filter mode switch selects between low-pass and high-pass modes to target the desired frequency range. Modulate the cutoff over time with the envelope generator's attack, decay and sustain controls.

Perform With a Highly Intuitive Layout

The Poly D places 84 thoughtfully laid out controls at your fingertips for joyful music creation. Connectivity includes MIDI I/O over USB/DIN, after pressure/velocity outputs, V-Trig I/O and external modulation jacks. Unleash your imagination and discover legendary analog tones with the Behringer Poly D.

Perform Inspired Solos, Sequences and More

The Poly D's 37 velocity-sensitive keys, with aftertouch, lend themselves to inspired performances. Capture ideas on the fly with the built-in sequencer and arpeggiator. Connect via USB/MIDI and use the dedicated modulation/control outputs to interface with other gear. The Poly D makes it easy to harness that vintage vibe in a modern production or performance setup.

Authentic Look and Feel

Beyond the sound, the Poly D nails the aesthetic and hands-on experience. The interface offers intuitive control with ample knobs and switches. Details like the wood side panels and vintage-font logo add to the retro design. Whether on stage or in the studio, the Poly D brings iconic analog synth tone and vibe to your creative space.
