Poly Evolver Keyboard: Icy Pad

This is the sort of sound a Poly Evolver makes when it first wakes up in the morning.  It’s natural to the instrument.  Turn it on, and this is how it first sings to you.

Midnight snowfall, a frozen lake, cold mist, even a frosted window pane – these are the images the voice of this instrument always bring to my mind.  A magnificent mysterious character.

The pad uses an envelope to modulate the filter which, with this particular digital waveshape, has more than the ordinary effect.  I also use the high pass filter to occasionally give the pad a distant nasal quality, as if the PEK were being heard from an cheap pocket radio.
