The KORG Poly-61 is a programmable polyphonic synthesizer released by Korg in 1982,[1] as a successor to the Polysix. It was notable for being Korg's first "knobless" synthesizer - featuring a push-button interface for programming, dispensing from the Polysix's knobs and switches. The Poly-61 also moved to a hybrid tone-generation system, using digitally controlled analog oscillators or DCO's (Roland's Juno-6 had made the same leap the previous year), in place of the Polysix' more retrograde VCOs. In 1984 a MIDI version, the Poly-61M was released featuring basic MIDI implementation.


Gear Porn thread - pics of your slutty setups for $300 at Music Go Round in Kenosha, WI. Fully functional and is an absolute joy to play. The Poly-61, Juno-6, and Sub Phatty are fantastic synths as well. But I'm a huge fan of vintage string synths and the Solina is king. The Casio and Miracle Piano are there just for fun....

Is a Poly 61M pointless if i already have a Polysix?

Tubbutec ModyPoly works for the Korg Poly-61 minus unison functionality.

Behringer MS-101 Analogue Synthesizer on trade?) "buying a JX-3P with a PG-200 for £50 and the seller threw in a free Korg Poly-61 with it" is not something you just rattle off like it was a common occurrence, this **** just didn't happen like that in real life. wish i still had all those Daddy's Junky Music...
