Improvisation #99 for Poly Evolver Keyboard

There are so many fabulous new synthesizers available theses days; and yet, here I am still twiddling around with my old Poly Evolver Keyboard. Well, it makes perfect sense, because the PEK is still an astoundingly beautiful sounding synthesizer that holds up beside the latest and greatest new instruments.

The pad in this piece is made on the Poly Evolver Keyboard/Rack combination, and the dynamics are controlled by the modulation wheel. Although during the darker portions of the music the patch is quite warm and analog-ish, there are actually two higher-pitched digital wave shapes that are heard when the filter is opened . The bass is provided by the Prophet ’08 and played on the pedal board as usual.
