Is the Polyspaze the size of the AnamonoX Mini?

Strange choice indeed as it would be very handy to modulate a sample on osc 1.

Oh happy day

A surprise new gotharman instrument!

Love using FUZION as a poly synth, only thing it was missing was analog filters and now the polyspaze covers that ;)

Curious about the filter topology. Is it unique to PolySpaze or the same as one of the many Anamono Filters?

Is the synth architecture essentially hardwired as opposed to the modular nature of Anamono?

Really liked the sound of the poly synth demo!

Thank you very much Rayce!

Each voice has a highpass filter and a lowpass filter, that is the same as the ones in the VCF8- Dual Band SSI filter.

The architecture is mostly hardwired, to make it simpler to use. It is possible to connect all 8 filters together, to form a filterbank, and it is possible to place each effects processor before or after the VCA's. The 4 LFO's are global, and are not hardwired to parts.

Would love to hear demo of the FAT effect and it's phasing modulated!

Can effects be applied to the audio inputs in real time?

Yes, the audio inputs can go through the analog filters and the effects.

To me , except the polyphony , it seems like an Xmini
Revisited . In addition physically it. Is strictly the same .
A bit disappointed since gotharman is usually more creative
Than that .
You could have named the unit " Xmini mkII" :yay:

I actually really like the Fuzion digital filters. They sound great. I also really like Gotharman analog filters quite a bit. So it just depends on what you're looking for - the lively, crunchy and liquid digital sound of the Fuzion or some warmer hybrid sound.

This is why the best is to have FUZION and XMINI ( or anamono x )
Like me :bananaguitar:


I also love the FUZION synth sound , especially in polyphonic mode or when you set it as massive " 8 voices " mono synth :woah:
If only flemming could consider just a few of my suggestions I was writing
In a pdf file ( see the link in FUZION forum ) it would be so nice
