Add option in Settings to have Perform mode work for MIDI/synth tracks as well

Perform mode is one of the best features of the Play/Play+ and there is no good reason that we shouldn’t be able to Perform on the MIDI/Synth steps as well. So I propose to add a an option in Settings, like “Perform mode affects” with the possible selections “Audio, MIDI/synth, Both”

What is the problem?

Perform mode only works for the 8 Audio tracks

What do you want to achieve?

I want to be able to have the same real-time fun with MIDI/synth tracks as with Audio tracks. Sure, Perform modes like Delay/Reverb won’t work for MIDI tracks but in those cases it would simply do nothing.

Are there any workarounds?


Any links to related discussions?


Any references to other products?

only Play/Play+ itself

Polyend has already said in Backstage that MIDI perform is coming in a future release. We can spare ourselves the review and voting for a feature that is confirmed.

Thanks - is there a good place in Backstage to check for planned features?

Usually Polyend doesn’t disclose features before they announce new releases, but this was an exception. See Perform Feature Using Midi - #23 by icaria36

Ok, I guess we can archive this request since it is planned to be implemented anyway.
