Hideaway Studio Proudly Presents… Constellation: Apollo 203A

Constellation Apollo 203A GUIConstellation: Apollo 203A was in many ways a celebration of yet another successful resurrection of an old classic saved from the grave… This time it was a 1976 Polymoog model 203A most definitely rescued from a fate worse than death!…  she could have become a coffee table! Well ok, maybe not…

In a similar manner to Monopolyphonix I really didn’t want to sample the poor beast to death simply to produce another virtual offering so instead I captured over 500 samples directly from No.3211’s mix output, often a sample per key, and set about trying to make something a little different.   To add to the mixing pot I sampled a number of patches I’d recently created on my SE Omega 8 which I thought was kind of fitting in a way as it almost felt like a celebration of the last 30+ years of polyphonic synthesis.   In order to make the two sing a little more sweetly together I decided to wash the Omega through an old analog stereo chorus unit and a tube equaliser.

Stephen Howell (Hollow Sun) and Mario Krušelj really outdid themselves this time with a superb GUI based on the 4-voice layering engine but now complete with independent velocity sensitivity controls on each channel…

  1. Very Nice,
    Happy to see another polymoog brought back from death and an outstanding software development. I have restored many polymoogs and know what it took.

    Great work!
