I’m on the prowl for a Poly 800 especially one with the Hawk mod.

Woot! Had my eye on that one, haven't talked to anyone who's played it. Did get the Behringer 303 clone and it's pretty decent, though I like the Audio Realism ABL3 more. Don't know if it's more or less accurate, but it sounds great and there's cool ways to generate patterns. I haven't been able to map it to the Behringer 303 to use it as a controller though, I don't think the knobs send MIDI information. I'm assuming that means the knobs are analog (continuous) which is great for the clone, but my generic MIDI controller isn't as fun to play.

Anywhoo, I actually have the EX-800, which I'm sure you know is the desktop version of the Poly-800. It's got the Atomahawk mod, which I think is everything. Unfortunately there's something wrong with the envelope generators -- they all have no release, as a far as I can tell. There's four of them, and I've opened them up all the way with no luck, as soon as you take your finger off the keys the sound stops. I should probably talk to the guy who did the mod, just haven't had the time or the money.

Yeah, sounds like a miswired mod.

Thought I’d share some music I’ve done previously. Former band here and one of my fav tracks. Seems we have a fan.

Thanks! That’s very nice to say. We actually used to play Backwater, the lead of which I played on my.... Pro One!

Wow, I like that. Very OMD vocals, in my view.
She battled through in every kind of tribulation,
She revelled in adventure and imagination.
She never listened to no hater, liar,
Breaking boundaries and chasing fire.
Oh, my my! Oh my, she flies!

Well, you caught us! We obviously wear our influences on our sleeve. This is the longest running project I’ve been involved in. We bought our first gear in 83. OMD was the template as it was just two of us and we were extreme fanboys. By the end of the year we had a bass, an SH101, a Korg Polysix and a DR110 drum machine all running into a Radio Shack mixer to a 10 watt guitar amp. No effects except for the spring reverb on the amp. After Junk Culture was released, while we liked the album, it didn’t have the same spark of the first four albums. One night in 84 during of our coffee and cigarillo sessions we determined to “preserve” that sound. For better or for worse, while other influences have made their way in (like Eno in that lyric,) we never really strayed from that “mission.” Poncey would be a good description of us at the time. :lol:

Well, that’s as may be. :lol: I do enjoy the sound, though. I know nothing about anything except what I like, and I like it a lot.
