Polyend Tracker - Out on March 18th


#1

:smiley: :bomb:

I NEED THIS


#2

I’ve never used a tracker, but depending on the price point I might even like to give this a go. I love old school Jungle but never found my rhythm (pun intended) in making it on hardware or in a DAW.


#3

World’s first hardware tracker??


#4

sweet that looks very interesting


#5

Siiiiiiiick


#6

Part of me wants this, the other part knows I’m sorted on the sequencer front…
But it looks sooo much fun!


#7

yeah I was gassing on this when I saw the first vids…but man, not sure I would use it. I really want to go more into hardware, but it seems like an endless crawl to get more gear to get near to the level of integration and completeness that I have in my DAW. Now something like this though, perhaps it would be the perfect brain outside my daw…time will tell. Great price on the unit too. These are the guys that made the Medusa synth as well, and they just updated that one, and it looks even better than before…maybe one day I can afford both.


#8

A few years ago I would have been all over this like a fungus, but I’m too spoiled by the Force now.
In no way perfect, but not having to worry about how much sample time I have left and so on is quite nice.


#9

My friend won one of these about a month ago. Still to hear anything he has made with it but i’m keen to hear. I liked the look of it but loopops was very effective at turning me off this thing completely; which is a first for him!


#10

I think I entered the same competition, tell your friend he is a dick.

Looplop or whatever he’s called did the same to me on the Tracker. On paper it seems like something I really wanted, then the more I saw the less interested I was


#11

Lol. I have passed your feedback onto him.

Thing i noticed with the tracker was how into it some of my peers were that weren’t into hardware at all. I don’t understand the appeal of something like this compared to a trusty octatrack


#12

I just can’t get into a tracker workflow, but I love that this exists even if I amn’t going to use it. Feel like we are really in an era of hardware renissance at the moment


#13

I hope to purchase a Polyend Tracker later this year, if stock is available. The tracker workflow looks fun, and reminds me of the note edit screens on old sequencers. Overall, the Tracker will not replace my present sequencer, a Pioneer DJ SQUID, but will serve as a secondary option to mix things up on occasion.


#14

I’m more tempted by the NerdSeq Portable…
