It’s not an evolution / revolution in sample based sequencing but it’s super fun, fast and makes very quick work of things. I’m also a visual guy, funny to say when working in audio, and the grid matrix makes laying down patterns super easy. With other sequencers I’m always trying to figure out where I am, this really takes that out of the equation because you can see everything.
Knob per function interface is super intuitive, haven’t had to crack the manual once when using it standalone. Did have to look at a few things to get in integrated with the tracker but other than that it’s been very smooth sailing.
Comes with some really great samples and the performance mode is really cool. It can really bring a loop alive in a multitude of ways.
Polyend Play paired with the Polyend Tracker. Play acting as main sequencer / sample player, tracker handles wavetable synthesis for pads, longer samples and field recordings. Hoping to get a video done soon, time will tell on that though……
