Polyend - Seq
Every sequence in just a Seq
We designed Seq with some non-digital musical devices in mind. We did it for a reason. Our goal was to implement features that make Seq as playable and fun to use as possible. We made it easy to set up and even easier to create rhythms, chords, and melodies. Most of the functions are available directly from the front panel and all its features give you the quickest and most natural way to bring your ideas to light. And, when you’ve got them together, rest assured they won’t get lost thanks to the Autosave function.
Seq is its own computing center, hardware- and software- optimized to manage given tasks in the most effective way, without latency or glitches. Immediate responsiveness creates a synergy between the musician and the tool. It’s an inspiration right from the very first step.
The idea Intuitive to use hardware step sequencer. 32 steps, 8 track polyphony, 256 pattern storage - all enclosed within the highest quality aluminum and wooden housing. Multiple connections give you the freedom to play with your hardware and software devices. It’s designed for you to be inspired and, most importantly, fully enjoy the process of creation. Seq is all you need for the way you make music today.
The heart of your creativity Equipped with a wide array of inputs and outputs, allowing you to communicate freely with other devices of every era and genre. Lets you feed tracks with MIDI notes using your favorite MIDI controller. Every track can be recorded step by step or in real time and then quantized independently.
With two MIDI outputs, you can connect rhythm and sound machines simultaneously. You choose where to send out the signal from every track, and if that’s not enough, you can also use the USB port for the same purpose.
• MIDI input to either sync clock or input MIDI notes
• MIDI thru
• Two independent MIDI outputs
• USB for bidirectional MIDI communication
• Footswitch input to control start, stop, and record
Main features • 8 tracks with 32 steps each
• 256 pattern memory
• On the fly track parameter Randomization
• Live sequence recording with external device via MIDI
• Step parameters: Note, Velocity, Length, Modulation, Roll
• Independent track play mode (Normal, Reversed, Pingpong, Random)
• Track parameters: Length, Velocity, MIDI Channel, MIDI out
• All parameter changes are automatically saved
• Pattern chaining
Big step forward in design The use of oak and aluminum – materials of timeless quality – allowed us to avoid the need for any flashy details, making what remains even more elegant in its simplicity. Seq buttons are made of silicone with specially matched density and firmness. Their shape, size, and arrangement were chosen carefully to provide an instant and explicit response. Most of the parameters and values can be read from the Seq interface at a glance. For the rest of them, we provide a bright and sharp screen. Minimalistic, stripped down from any distractions, it brings all the information you need in any performing conditions you meet.
Poly With MIDI protocols, you are ready to go in most situations, but we couldn’t resist incorporating direct and seamless connections between Seq and voltage control universes, which we are quite fond of. Out of this urge of ours, Poly was born. A Eurorack module with implemented configuration reflecting Seq’s eight channels. It converts the MIDI signal to voltage values managing the Gate, Pitch, Velocity, and Modulation parameters of each step. Through CV outputs, any Eurorack array can be fed with all the musical content you just created using Seq.
