I’m interested in the Play. Read a lot and saw loads of videos. But what’s holding me back are the negative comments about the Midi Tracks, I also read that Polyend promised to work on the midi features. Does somebody know what and when we can expect?
btw…I cannot see any beta firmware features because I’m not a Play owner (yet), so don’t know the status of midi tracks in beta firmware. Are there alreay made improvements in the beta?
I don’t have them in detail because I do not own one. It’s more about reading in the Elektronauts forum, where was stated in januari that Polyend would come with a firmware update with the focus on Midi (Tracks). I’m curious about the status of it. Does the beta firmware updates midi improvements?
From the Eletronauts forum a post from 22 january :
‘Someone on the v1.2 update video said that Polyend customer support told him they were shooting for a major MIDI update by the end of January. It seems like that’s date is not going to happen, but hopefully a major MIDI overhaul is coming soon.’
Eletronauts forum post from 28 february :
‘Piotr from Polyend in his own words last week:
We are working on two very cool melodic-related features. But first, we’ll release a ‘midi update’ fixing some stuff there - coming very soon.’
Can somebody please explain what features this ‘midi update’ will have? And when is ‘coming very soon’?
If you are initially interested on the Play and you are not missing anything specific upfront… maybe you just try it? The Play has very powerful MIDI capabilities, see for instance Turning the Polyend Play into a Mini Midi Station. For almost every young product you will find talk about more features and fixes in the next release, but what matters is whether you find the product interesting here and now.
