Sequence, perform, play

Polyend Play is possibly the most flexible and inspirational groovebox ever created. Loaded with over 3,000 samples and 8 tracks of audio sequencing, you can create beats straight out of the box and truly make them your own with a wide variety of playback tools and effects. Pick and place your sounds anywhere on the grid for a truly 'sandbox' approach to beatmaking. Switch to Perform mode for even more ways to create new grooves, and if that's not enough, take advantage of Play's powerful sequencer to control your outboard gear with a further 8 polyphonic MIDI tracks.

Play

Find your sound among over 3,000 included samples and place it anywhere on the grid to start building your tracks, then easily adjust step parameters independently with familiar sample-based controls. Make each track your own with 35 different play modes, Chance-and-Action Combo, Randomizer and Step Repeater functions.

Stuck for inspiration? Utilize Smart Fill to automatically fill any area you choose with an entire beat, a random placement of steps or even a Euclidean spread. Quickly move data around, such as steps, tracks, track pages, variations and patterns, with simple selection and copy/paste controls. Keep it musical with scale filtering, allowing only notes within the selected scale to be output by the entire sequence.

Perform

Play's Perform mode lets you make non-destructive changes to your tracks via performance effects including Tune, Filter, Overdrive, Rearranger, Reverb and many more. Live record automation or change individual step values on the fly and even record mono or polyphonic MIDI from an external controller or the onboard grid keyboard.

You can instantly save and recall patterns, perfect for when things go wrong during a live performance, and customizable pattern chaining allows you to map out entire sequences anywhere on the grid and then perform them live. Reverb, delay, sound enhancer, limiter and saturator master effects are included to spice up your entire mix.

Sequence

8 internal audio tracks and 8 individual polyphonic MIDI tracks combine for powerful integration with your existing instruments. Over 30,000 track variations are available! That's 128 patterns holding 16 tracks with each individual track holding up to 16 variations. Each track can benefit from independent 1-64 step lengths, different BPM-related speeds, playback modes and even swing values – perfect for polymetric and polyrhythmic sequences. Control your synths and drum machines on their own individual tracks with the ability to output a separate set of MIDI values per track. Play has full MIDI capabilities with flexible MIDI CC mapping per track for the individual rotary knobs and you can connect an external controller for MIDI note input. On the output side you can send MIDI chords, arpeggios, program and bank changes, pitch bend, clock and much more.
