Polydrone is first and foremost a playable character instrument well suited to ambient, pads, and drones. Its character is derived from pitch shifting a saturated sine oscillator down. 15 pitch shifters work in parallel, their levels playable with 15 faders. Countless tones are possible by adjusting the saturation parameters.
The ‘oscillators’ can be set to all 7 scale modes + harmonic minor, by use of a scale select slider. To select starting root key and octave simply press a note on the keyboard.
