  • One of Korg’s best

    The Polysix has a fantastic tone. It can produce beautifully dark and haunting pads and strings, and then go to aggressive resonant basses and sweeps. Often compared with the Roland Juno series, it doesn’t quite have their wide sweet spots and easy-to-mix tone. But it has a much grittier and beefier…

    I had a Juno 60 for 3+ years , a Jupiter 6, a Jx3p for quite a while, and this thing has some charm all it's own. I certainly feel prefer it. Not sure if it is better, but I like it the best. The battery thing must be dealt with , so try to find a clean one!- Mike Vilogi
