Korg Poly 800 Patches

Korg Poly 800 presets

Analog synth from the 80’s with two DCOs, three EGs, a 24db/oct filter, chorus. A popular choice for modification.

Squirly by adam (synthlib) on May 27, 2016

Filter resonance is set pretty high while the cutoff is modulated dramatically with an envelope. Starts out sounding like a percussive sound, then evolves into a pad-like sustain.

Plinkoo by adam (synthlib) on Mar 07, 2016

Pluckey percussive thing. Useful in place of marimba or even plucked bass.

Sunday Morning by adam (synthlib) on Feb 22, 2016

Full Beard by adam (synthlib) on Dec 16, 2015 1

ThatBass by adam (synthlib) on Dec 03, 2015

Here’s yet another bass patch. Slightly different from others around here. Maybe this is the one you were looking for :)

Categories: bass

Come Back Here by adam (synthlib) on Nov 25, 2015

Starts with a quick attack/decay for a percussive saw wave tone, gradually returning to full volume and quickly released.

Categories: staccato, percussive, saw, bright

Lingery by adam (synthlib) on Nov 18, 2015

Medium attack swooshes in the filter, then we cut off one oscillator quickly while letting the other linger on.

Categories: chord, bright

ResoB by adam (synthlib) on Nov 13, 2015

Almost a wah-like bass. Added resonance makes it talk.

Categories: bass, resonance

Fatness Squared by adam (synthlib) on Nov 09, 2015

Fuzz and whistle split an octave apart—great for parallel octaves or contrary motion.

Categories: bass, saw

FuzBah by adam (synthlib) on Nov 05, 2015

Staccato chords. Try adding tempo-synced delay to liven it up.

Categories: staccato, percussive

Darky Dark by adam (synthlib) on Nov 05, 2015

From the synthlib podcast, this is the intro tone. A dark tone moving bright. Nice for sequences or bass.
