Poly-Ana uses a different approach than most other VA soft-synths which we feel delivers a sound more authentic to the early analog synths that inspired her features. This "brute-force" method admittedly requires more processing power than other common techniques, but is a far truer model of the functioning of real analog instruments. If you obsess over the quality of your sound like we do then you won't mind using a bit more CPU power to help get you closer to that real analog sound; a sound that so many other VA synths fall too-far short of. (Note that Poly-Ana also offers a Quality option to reduce CPU usage during performance-time at the expense of sound quality.) Poly-Ana's voice architecture is an ambitious combination of all the best features of the famous analog classics, plus a few new features (totaling 208 controls, plus a full 5 octave velocity sensitive virtual keyboard!) which, while possible back in the day, would have been prohibitively expensive to implement in hardware.

the poly-ana always makes its way into synth articles. not seen it mentioned as much on gs though. but i would love a go on that custom controller the guy built for it.

...keyboards. Exactly as you say, there's typically rubber bushings that have hardened over time. The EPS+ I used to test Poly-Ana required me to really lean on the keys, so I didn't get the "bump" problem with it but rather the "I think I'm going to break something" problem as well as the "boy...
