- Maximum 12 note polyphony featuring unison, voice detune and a unique poly-unison mode

- Two filters per voice, 12/24 dB/Oct, LPF/HPF, can be run in parallel or in series allowing for additional multi-mode capability

If the source knobs on Poly-Ana make you a bit dizzy you can opt for dropdown lists like in the banana skin.
Poly-Ana has had a reduced price for almost half a year (during beta testing) and is now available for the full price of $129.95 USD.
