Vladimir Kuzmin and Behringer have announced that they have entered into a collaboration to develop a new Polivoks synthesizer.
Vladimir Kuzmin stated: "With great interest have I followed Behringer's Vision to bring back iconic synthesizers and make them affordable for musicians. For all my life, I have been extremely passionate about synthesizers and I decided to contact Uli to see if Behringer would be interested to design a new Polivoks as I would love to see my legacy live on. I designed the Polivoks in 1980 at the Urals Vector plant in Russia, while it was produced by the Formanta Radio Factory. The Polivoks has features that are very unusual on most analog synthesizers, which creates this very unique and distinctive sound, often referred to as "Russian synthesizer sound".
Uli Behringer, commented, "For many years it has been my dream to create a new and much improved Polivoks. Uli's synthesizer Vision provides a fantastic opportunity for me to contribute to the reimagining of my Polivoks and to make it accessible to everyone - a Vision I profoundly believe in and want to be part of. It's an immense honor to have Vladimir Kuzmin on our team as he is a legendary synth designer. We are extremely proud, we could win him for our ambitious Vision."
