    Description
    Korg's Poly61M was released shortly after the Poly-61's release in 1982. Largely considered the followup to the Polysix but with less knobs and a more rudimentary matrix way of editing sounds.

    The Poly-61M which offered MIDI capabilities was released a short time after the Poly-61. The Poly-61M is identical in structure to the original Poly-61. and the more expensive Polysix. Now there are 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.
