Why does everybody hate the Poly 61? Even my cat..

Well, I'm gonna spare you most of the details. But..

One of my cats just puked on the keyboard of my Poly 61.
Come on! No synthesizer deserves that kind of disrespect!
Luckily it was easy to clean off.

Any negative comments about cats will be removed.
I love my cats.


  1. Yes, but maybe it's your cat-loving that causes them to puke ?

  2. I dont know if you've noticed, but they are selling knobs for Korg Poly 61 joysticks on EBay

  3. Seems like cats has some issues with the Poly 61!
    I'm currently trying to repair mine after my cats jumped on it so it fell on the floor and went completely silent..

  4. Helene, hope it's nothing serious. I guess if you're unlucky one of the boards could be cracked or something. Start by making sure any socketed chips are pressed back in place and that all connectors and wiring looks good.
    It it a simple and sometimes boring sounding synthesizer but it can sound really nice as well if you know what you're doing.
    Good luck!
