Reply with quote  Mark this post and the followings unread

Patch designed after listening to some Gary Numan songs heavily using the Polymoog. I didn't find such kind of sound in the G2 library (but may be I didn't search long enough).
I started from ian-s patch (http://www.electro-music.com/forum/ntopic-6164.html).
Lots of control, on all wheels and aftertouch (filter, phaser, Resonator, tremolo)
The famous Polymoog Resonator is only a simple EqPeak+Wah here )-: so that's really not a emulation.... but a nice sounding patch (anyway I hope so) reminding the Polymoog

Subject description: Additional Variations
Reply with quote  Mark this post and the followings unread

Here are a few additional Variations
Don't forget to use all the wheels (mod an W2 for the resonator tuning, they deeply influence the sound, and W2 for phase control).
Some bass sounds.... so becoming to be quite far away from the Polymoog... but still analog big sounding....

oooh, man -

Haven't downloaded this yet but if it's good, I need it. Just saw Gary Numan in Portland, Oregon on Monday and was yet again blown away by his old sound - no true Polys this time, but some damned rich sounds.

Re existing stiff - there's a patch called Hypersquare in the libraries that does some of the Numan Polymoog effect, but if you've done Vox Humana I'll name my next child after you - assuming I ever get the vasectomy reversed ;')

Time to download!

He's playing in the Bay Area this week- (I think it's already over.)
Tickets were sold out before I knew the show was coming Sad

I hope it will sound the way you like Wink

For Gary Numan style use PolyMoogHumana patch with variation 1,2 (best one I guess) 3 and 7, with mod wheel at 25% and wheel2 at 30% (what you want on wheel1) and PolyMoogHumana2 patch with variation 4 and mod wheel at 50% wheel2 at 30% and wheel1 at 0.

Of course playing with the wheels provides a much more alive sound....

Unfortunately Gary Numan doesn't seam to have any show planed somewhere in France

You never know, he may add more dates to his tour.

Likewise, Jean-Michel Jarre still has no US dates scheduled for his current world tour.

Here is a short demo of the Patch
Everything is done with de G2 PolyMoogHumana patch (except the 808 coming from an HPD15).
Very analog sound....
Thanks again to Ian-s for the Hypersquare patch which was the starting point for this patch

Nice patch :¬)

I saw Mr Numan live at the Auckland town hall back in the late 70's. Great show. I had a friend who owned a polymoog that I helped get working in the 80's. I think I read somewhere that Gary only used the limited 'polymoog keyboard' version.
In theory, the full polymoog could do all that the lesser synth could do. In practice, the presets on the cheep version used fixed, inductor based resonators for subtle tone shaping. No mater how the variable active resonator was set, it didn't sound like the vox humana preset.
I downloaded some vox humana wav samples and to be honest, the raw sound seems far removed from what you hear on record. The tone shaping is far more subtle than I expected.
