A Brief History Of The Original & Classic Polymoog 203a Synth

The Polymoog is the descendant of an ambitious project by Moog Music to create a large ensemble system called the Constellation. It was to include two keyboard synthesizers, the polyphonic Apollo and monophonic Lyra, and the Taurus foot pedalboard synthesizer.

Although the Constellation project never made it to production, the Taurus pedalboard was released on its own, while the “Apollo Polyphonic Synthesizer” went on to become the Polymoog.

It is also noteworthy that the Apollo/Polymoog project did not directly involve Bob Moog and was instead mostly designed by Dave Luce at Moog Music.

The Polymoog (model 203a) is a fully polyphonic preset-based synthesizer released in 1975. Its eight preset sounds consist of Strings, Piano, Organ, Harpsichord, Funk, Clavi, Vibes and Brass.

There is also a Var (Variation) mode that allows any one of the preset sounds to be fully modified into unique and wild analog sounds using all of the available synthesis parameters on board.

In 1978, a newer, cheaper and more simplified model was released, the Polymoog Keyboard 280a. The original model 203a was thus re-named the Polymoog Synthesizer.

The 280a model has more preset sounds (fourteen of them) but eliminated most of the editing functions that make the original 203a so much more flexible.

The 280a model’s new preset sounds included Vox Humana, Strings 2, Electric and Honky Tonk pianos, Chorus Brass and a Rock Organ. The Vox Humana preset is a wonderful sound (used famously by Gary Numan).

Unique among Moog’s lineup, the Polymoog is not at all like the Minimoog or any of the other mono-synths Moog has become famous for. Instead, it was designed to complement Moog’s monophonic synthesizers.

The Polymoog 203a finally ceased production in 1980.

450 Inspiring Presets & Total Control In One Stylish Package!

Adding over 5GB of Polymoog 203a samples to the original 1.5GB of Polymoog 280a samples in Zom Zom – developer Steve Porter at Synth Magic really wanted to create a library of sounds that gave a wide range of Polymoog 203a sounds and acheived just that, “Polycom” will provide you with the great sound of the Polymoog.

The original Zom Zom (Preset polymoog 280a with Vox Humana) sounds are also included and selectable from this new interface. “Polycom” also comes with the original ZOM ZOM Kontakt instrument, so you get both.
