"Introspection" Arturia Minifreak, Polyend Tracker, Ruismaker Gauss

video upload by Vöstok-one


Inspired by the Nô Theatre, this track is my personal feeling of it.
At the beginning it all started with this voice.
I sampled and looped it in the Ruismaker Gauss. On the back, the Nô theatre it's all about percussion, so I built some tribal rhythm with the Polyend Tracker. My personal addition of this traditional art was the melodic aspect created with the Minifreak.

I hope you will enjoy this song as much as I had fun playing it."

Minimal Polyend Play Sequence + Projection Mapping

video upload by Perplex On

"Recently got myself a #PolvendPlay and so far, it's a really inspiring
instrument. This simple sequence is made with one stock sample only, with a pinch of chance and randomness added. Served with projection mapped visuals onto its grid to accompany the smooth minimal feeling. Enjoy."

Audio improvements include stereo sample loading/importing, stereo sample previews from your SD card, plus a metronome in the USB Audio master channel.

Weatherstruck | Ensoniq EPS sampler downtempo electronic somberwave

video upload by MIDERA

"Today, I traded something small (Polyend Tracker) for something big (Ensoniq EPS). I kind of don't know what I was thinking. I knew I was overwhelmed with gear. But I've been debating buying an Ensoniq Mirage again and wondered if this (EPS) would suffice. I'm kind of thinking... yeah, maybe. It's doing everything I felt I did with the Mirage, only in an easier way. It's a higher bitrate, but it's still pretty chunky. I'm liking it. This is after digging around on it for one night, so I don't know if what I did sounds any good. I guess I like it, so that's good enough for me. I have no disks to save the sounds on, so I think this will have to say goodbye and be gone forever.

Still - I'm pretty impressed. The Ensoniq EPS gets dumped on. Not as much character as the Mirage, not as good as the EPS16 plus, and definitely not as good as the ASR10. To me, it seems like it's actually the worst one of the bunch. In no way did I find anyone recommending the EPS over the others mentioned above.

Well, I like it. It was pretty easy to make this and I think it's got some character, in a very similar way as the Mirage. One thing that didn't make sense was that it appears to be stereo based on the outputs, but I'm not sure it actually is.

More Live Dub Techno and Good Vibes!

video upload by Electronisounds Audio

"This jam cam about from the 'Hardware Jams' Facebook Groups weekly challenge - which this week was simply to NOT use a Roland 303 in your jam. Hahaha

I used Roland TR8s for the drums, Polyend Tracker Mini for an atmos texture + chord stabs and a percussion loop, Arturia MiniFreak for the pad sound, the AKAI MPC Live V1 for the vocal samples and the Roland SPD-SX drum pad for the melodic lead.

Thinking about the Polyend Play+ // Are its synths worth the extra cost?

video upload by Starsky Carr

"The Polyend Play+ has got Synths, Stereo and Audio over USB... but if that's not your bag could you save some cash by buying or sticking with the original ? What do the synths do? how do they work? what do they sound like? are they easy to use?

All answered in here... hopefully!

I look at the synth voices in some depth (not too much I hope) to demo what you can get from them and their overall tone, usefulness and playability. As a synth head I have to say I like them and think they're a worthy addition to Team Play."
