Dave Smith who some say is the father of MIDI and a few classic synths besides has er, evolved the Evolver – already hailed by many as a future classic, into a polyphonic rack mounted synth. The original Evolver proved to be capable of some pretty awesome sounds in it’s mono form has now been racked up and given more voices – four to be precise. (see our Evolver review) The new Poly Evolver is essentially four Eolver’s in a 19 inch rack, each with individual stereo outs.The processing of external signals is still there but with the added bonus of being able to route it through all four Evolver modules for truly complex processing. The original Evolver had a mind-boggling array of modulation possibilities and now with four of em in the same unit, there’s even more to offer. The Poly Evolver boasts four stereo outs – assignable for each of the modules, plus a mix and headphone outs. As Dave said, the patches are still in development as some of the original Evolver sounds were so big – making them polyphonic was not an option – however the Poly Evolver will be capable of some wicked pad sounds. Dave will be selling selling the Poly Evlover through his website as before and will be shipping his finished units by April with units available through:
