— Vintage-inspired synth gives producers the sound of the golden age of analog polyphonic synthesizers —
SCOTTS VALLEY, CA • November 8th, 2022 — Universal Audio Inc.

“The iconic sound of analog synthesizers from the 70s and 80s left their stamp on countless records and film scores of the era, and are revered to this day for their lush harmonics and ability to sit easily into any mix,” says Bill Putnam, Jr., CEO of Universal Audio. “Created with our deep analog-modeling expertise, PolyMAX is inspired by these timeless sounds and fits seamlessly into any DAW‑based workflow.”
With an approachable user interface and album-ready presets, PolyMAX allows creators to dial in the perfect sound quickly, regardless of genre. Onboard studio‑quality UA effects include the sound of a classic digital “Hall B” reverb, tape delay, and modulation textures such as phasers.
