Taylor Livingston wrote:The Polytope page talks about this a bit. Voices 1 and three are above the original pitch, and voices 2 and 4 are below. The detune knob controls the shift amount of all four voices simultaneously and proportionally. In other words, with all voices mixed in, if you have the detune knob detuning one semitone, then voice one is one semitone up from the original, voice two is one semitone down from the original, voice three is 2 semitones up from original, voice four is 2 semitones down from original.

So, the distance between all voices is not static - it changes proportionally with the detune knob. I attached a picture to help illustrate.

The detuning is proportional, like a whammy pedal or pitch shifter pedal, so if you shift up one semitone when playing a low note, that will still give you a semitone shift on high notes. The highest shift amount is several semitones, so you can get some huge tone clusters if you're into that kind of craziness. :) But it can also go down to zero shift, so anything from slight thickening to massive weirdo chords-from-a-single-note are possible. To make it easier to describe, I'm imagining that you have set the detune knob for one semitone, but in reality this would be a pretty extreme setting, of course.



Sweet! This makes me want to kiss you! <3
(And place an order next week.)


Edit: save for 8302, are there any dealers in Europe? I can't find anything on the Effektboutique page.

We haven't yet sent any Polytopes to those guys, but if you email them and ask about it they may get some in stock.

But we do ship direct to Europe (and the rest of the world) and most orders ship within one day.

Anddd.... Purchased!

I only am really waiting on this and my Randy's Revenge to come and my board will be complete :yay:

Not saying I won't be buying and selling anymore but all the core components are there and I could easily be happy with this board for years to come.

While jamming with a great drummer and friend I put my newly acquired Polytope up against what I thought was the best chorus, an Analogman chorus w/ three way switch. Yeah the Polytope just blew it away, I was able to get great traditional chorus sounds along with other more unique sounds. It pairs very well with the IE Nimbus as well.
For the love of fuzz.

Here's a clip I did with the Poly, it does indeed provide the best chorus sounds and so much more than that!

What on earth is that noise in the beginning of the clip Wes? I'm really glad it's light outside right now...
