Admiral Quality has released version 1.1 of Poly-Ana, an analog model polyphonic synthesizer plug-in for Windows PC.
Changes in Poly-Ana v1.1
- VST 2.4 compatible.
- Filter Cutoff and Resonance Gang buttons. Filter 2 can follow Filter 1′s CF and Resonance controls.
- Cutoff knob smoothing, no more zipper noise when automating filter sweeps.
- Oscillator Phase Retrigger buttons.
- Oscillator Phase Offset knob.
- Oscillator PWM Source and Amount controls now share double duty with new PM (Phase Mod) controls.
- Quality control has moved to front panel and is now automatically adaptive to different project sample rates.
- Analog drift knob, randomly detunes the oscillator pitches and filter cutoffs over time.
- Saturation button, a “smooth” saturator.
- DC Cut button, removes unwanted DC levels from output.
- Pink Noise available now as well as White Noise.
- Amplifier Pan Modulations now share double duty with new Amplitude Modulation.
- Anti-click filter button added to Amplifiers.
- Added 3 way rectifier switch to Mod Mixers. Adds Fullwave or Halfwave Rectification between the S&H and the Lag filter.
- FX version no longer rectifies the IN-1 and IN-2 audio input modulation sources.
- User-customizeable .png format background images.
- Some bugfixes.
Poly-Ana 1.1 is completely patch compatible with version 1.0. A fully functioning demo is available for download (the evaluation period has been reset).

Admiral Quality has released version 1.0 of Poly-Ana, an analog model polyphonic synthesizer.
- GUI has several background colors available, optional tooltips, and option to replace Mod Source dials with drop-down lists
- Maximum 12 note polyphony featuring unison, voice detune and a unique poly-unison mode
- Three oscillators per voice
- Two filters per voice, 12/24 dB/Oct, LPF/HPF, can be run in parallel or in series allowing for additional multi-mode capability
- Filter Resonance Modulation
- Stereo signal path throughout the voice. Poly-Ana produces dramatic stereo effects without using any tacked-on delay or chorus effects
- All voice parameters always visible and accessible with a single click
- Unique modulation routing scheme. All the power of modular without the tedious complications of using patch cables or a modulation matrix
- Waveform “morphing” creates smooth transitions between oscillator waveforms beyond simple cross-fading, Waveform Mod automatically morphs oscillator waveforms
- PWM for all oscillator waveforms
- Noise Sync. Oscillators can sync to noise source as well as normal pitched tones
- Two LFOs per voice with retriggering, allows separate phase for each voice’s LFOs
- Full Host-Sync for LFOs with adjustable phase offset
- Three ADSR envelopes per voice with adjustable curves
- Two Modulation Mixers allow for complex combinations of modulation sources
- Unique, oversampled voice engine for analog type sounds
- MIDI CC# mapping of all controls, automatic MIDI guitar controller support for 6 channel control in MIDI “Mono” mode
- VST instrument AND VST effect versions
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.
Visit Admiral Quality for more information and a link to download the demo (there is an evaluation reset for those who already tried Poly-Ana Beta, you can try it again for another week).
Naive LPF v0.5 is a resonant low-pass filter with envelope follower. Version 0.5 now has a GUI made with VSTGUI.
This filter has been developed to closely model the way some real world analog circuits work to achieve a vintage, analog feel.
You will find this filter has a very warm, even distorted, analog flavor. But the distortion it does impart tends to sound very musical to the ear, particularly when processing individual instrument tracks.
