Ever wanted to get into creating some Synthwave tracks but not 100% sure where to start?

Over these 10 videos, we cover everything you need to know from the concept of what Synthwave is all about, the synths, samplers and drum machines used to get the right sounds, how to create your own sounds from scratch and using the right effects, to building your own awesome 80’s sounding tracks.
Ah yep, got confused by reading " I bought Polysix years ago " … My bad
Doesn’t seem to have a specific Polysix manual then, it’s a common one for Polysix/MS-20 and original Legacy Cell edition from 2007 from the link mentioned by @Modular1. All KORG’s plug-ins had a recent refresh I believe, so not sure if those guides are even up to date. A bit confusing from KORG.
Hmmm, weirdly KORG has got an iPolysix dedicated Manual for the iPAD version of the Plug-in but no manual for the desktop plug-in ?? Not cool, or is it just me not being able to find an up to date manual ?
Anyway → Referring to this from this iPolysix Manual and assuming it should be the same with Polysix, Geoff might be right in the end, the FAT-LINE Bass patch on the Polysix is using 6 unison voices because only the UNISON button is lighted & active, the POLY button is OFF.
EDIT : And that’s from the original Legacy Cell Polysix Plug-in manual ( the only one I’ve found from KORG ). So reading this again makes me understand that the FAT-LINE bass patch is using 6 unison voices and no polyphony, because one mode disable the other.
Playing around with the Fat-Line bass patch on the Polysix, here’s what I’m understanding in the end. So yes, the amount of Unison voices is 1 and not 6, I also got it wrong interpreting it the first time. But the value 6 for the “Total” voices slot has nothing to do with Polyphony, because both can’t be used at the same time, it’s one or the other.
This value 6 in the end is the maximum Unison Voices you decide to set, from 1 to 32 and depending of that number you won’t be able to assign more voices in the Unison slot.
But in the end yes, it’s a 1 voice Unison patch unless you increase the voices, but not related to Polyphony mode.
