Constellation: 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…

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