Polyend Tracker Update Adds Horizontal Pattern Editor & More


Polyend has introduced a firmware update for its Tracker workstation that adds horizontal pattern editing, new effects, adding effects to the line inputs and other improvements.


Polyend was always going to face a bit of a conundrum with Tracker, its stylish sampling hardware. Firmware update adds an offers a horizontal workflow option.


Polyend Tracker’s new sequencing mode means it is now for people who do not like trackers, too


Here’s what’s new in Polyend Tracker v1.4:


  • Newly added Horizontal Pattern Edit Mode, to give you access to a more classic sequencing experience,
  • New step Fx’s – Arp, Slide, Gate Length, and Swing,
  • The Tune Fx in the Performance Mode now also works for MIDI notes,
  • Line Input passthrough now supports Delay and Reverb sends,
  • Mono support for Line Input passthrough,
  • Performance Mode now plays through the entire song
  • You can now switch between Perform screen and Instrument Parameters without breaking the performance,
  • Updated Title Bar is now also available in the Pattern Screen,
  • New MIDI output latency compensation (MIDI Instrument Parameters offset utility),
  • Overall bugfix and performance update



Polyend’s solution is to give us the best of both worlds; the tracker-style interface is still present and correct, but thanks to the new v1.4 firmware update, there’s now an alternative Horizontal Pattern Edit Mode for those who want “a more classic sequencing experience”.


In addition, the update also adds new step FX – Arp, Slide, Gate Length and Swing – while the Tune FX in the Performance Mode now work for MIDI notes, as well.

The Polyend Tracker is available now for 599€/$649.
