Infinite source of inspiration
A chain of tools (Volume, Tuning, Panning, Resonant Filters, Delay and Reverb Sends, ADSRs, LFOs, Overdrive) to make an instrument from any sample.
Polyend Tracker lets you choose different sample play modes: 1-shot, Forward, Backward, Ping-pong.
Slice your samples manually or let Tracker do it automagically for you.
Full-blown Wavetable synthesis with variable table length to make it compatible with the most popular standards (Ableton Wave and Serum compatible).
Single grain yet very powerful Granular synthesis to make crazy and futuristic sound from your old and boring samples.
Built-in precise offline rendering sample editor with multiple effects.
Record up to two minutes of 16-bit/44.1kHz samples using built-in Radio, mic, and line inputs. Bounce Pattern selections. Save them to the MicroSD card for later or load directly into the project.
Polyend Tracker is equipped with a variety of powerful sound design tools. Use samples from your existing library, record new ones with line or mic inputs, or use the built-in FM radio. Record samples, play them, slice them, mash them, or even make a synth out of them using Wavetable and Granular synthesis with all its necessary parts (filters, ADSRs, etc.)
The team player
Polyend Tracker works great with other instruments too. Thanks to its bidirectional MIDI implementation you can use it to sequence and control external gear. It can also be used as a sound module controlled by any external MIDI software or hardware devices.
The new classic
Projects hold up to 48 instruments, 256 patterns (with max. 128 steps per pattern). Don't be fooled by the classic tracker look. While maintaining the original quick and straightforward workflow, Polyend Tracker is armed with an updated arsenal of sonic weapons. Automatic filling, randomizer, probability, selection rendering, effects per step, live recording, batch parameters editing, micro-tuning, micro-timing, rolls, and many more, give you the tools to be endlessly creative.
Compatibility with MOD files allows you to import and finish tracks from back in the days or export and finalize them in the modern software trackers.
Polyend Tracker gives you all the necessary utilities to make songs from A to Z. Create your patterns and organize them into an entire piece using the Song Arrangement. Then seamlessly export your tracks to Stems or Master Track directly to the microSD card. Finally, publish your project at Polyend Label.
Polyend Label (coming soon) is a new community platform for sharing projects, instruments, sample packs, and wavetables. Share your skills and get inspired by others. Show off your tracks.
Performing with Polyend Tracker is where the fun starts. The performance mode adds a new dimension to Tracker and and allows you to remix all the pattern tracks available in your current project.
Combining assignable punch-in effects and batch editing of parameters applied to selected tracks yields a powerful remix and transforms Tracker into a live performance instrument by extending the possibilities of a pre-programmed track with endless variations.
