The Ploytec PL2 is a compact duophonic mono analog synthesizer that is powered and controlled via 5-pin MIDI. Alternatively the device can be powered by 5 VDC 100 mA using the included USB Micro-B port. The device can generate a wide variety of sounds using two square wave oscillators that can be connected together to create saw, sine, and pulse waveforms.
The synthesizer can be controlled and sequenced using your favorite DAW or hardware sequencer. You can program and store up to 32 sounds in the device's built-in memory. The device utilizes subtractive synthesis whereby the generated waveforms are routed through low-, high-, and band-pass digital filters to edit the frequency spectrum and amplify resonance.
The unit includes LFO modulation, PWM, ADSR envelope, and various play modes such as mono on, dual on, dual/detune, dual/octave, note priority, aftertouch, breath control, sustain hold, key-off attack, portamento, portamento time, all sound off, and all notes off. You can sync the LFO and envelope speed to an external MIDI clock. Future synthesizer extensions and new features can be updated via firmware and MIDI system (SysEx) transmission.
Physically, the device features one MIDI in jack, one RCA audio jack, and one Micro-B USB (for power only).
