Polite 800 is another well-known synthesizer of the eighties – Korg Poly 800. This small the lightweight plastic thing was supposed to be a powerful synthesizer, since it could be powered by batteries, had guitar pegs for the strap, and inverted key colors. On the other hand, programming is not performance, because, like most budget synthesizers of this time, the Poly 800 needs to be conquered by no more than a block of numbers plus an increase and decrease button.
The Live Pack and ReFill contain 35 tools that perfectly reflect the spirit of this classic hybrid. Racks / combinators have a standardized macro that is easy to learn. Thus, hot swapping of the included basses, keys, pads, braces, and FX sounds is completely painless. Nevertheless, all control macros are multi-linked with more than 20 parameters per instrument, which provides convenient detailed tuning of sounds.
The universal pack contains 32 patches for multiple samples that are loaded into numerous software samples, such as Kontakt (NI), NN-XT (Reason). EXS 24 (logic), Directwave (IL), as well as a software sampler that supports the Cakewalk sfz format.
