Description
The Poly-61 was released in 1982 and offered the same sound structure previously available on the more expensive and versatile Polysix. Now there were 2 DCO's available while still a the 6 voice synthesizer. The arpeggiator remained as well as the chord memory and effects. Korg's famous joystick for modulating the VCO and filter. Memory was now 64 patches and the cassette tape backup option was still onboard.

Korg's Poly61 was released in 1982. Largely considered the followup to the Polysix but with less knobs and a more rudimentary matrix way of editing sounds.

A short interval of time afterwards Korg released the Poly61M which offered MIDI capabilities. The Poly61M was identical to the original Poly61.
