I’m on the outside looking in, anxiously waiting for the play to reach its mature state and holding my breath for the next update. bugs and the menu driven synth editing to be addressed mainly…
I’m quite sold for reasons we all share, I don’t see many workstations as freely design for breaking breakbeat boundaries
The workflow/ unlimited shades of seq dicing and amazing FX (man that reverb) plus the characteristics of the synth engines are all highly appealing.
…what’s irritating to me is some very basics. Likes stringing an arrangement together. I know you have pattern chaining but its far from a arcing a complete complex arrangement.
it’s puzzling that song mode is so neglected considering how inviting this format is to complex arrangements.
I assume one could just stream (p+) a live jam through USB host… so naturally I will ask:
**Is the USB audio working flawlessly ?
Yet underlined artform of storytelling is the composition itself so I’d like to pitch a concept of a song mode.
Here a Song mode needs overlay (say shift + hold patter to display song mode)
Each pad in a liner manner is a song step (8x16) and patterns and can be copied into each song step similar to how pattern mode works.
Each song step holds
+Number of pattern repeats
+Solo/mute status for tracks
This way you can milk patterns instead of creating new ones all the time to extend a pre-ordered chain.
It also be interesting if a song could hold BAR information, so instead of playing all bars it play just selected bars.
I would work overtime in my MPC4K to break up the bars but repeating song steps and recording of muted was quick and natural.
So this beings the next questions
**Can we expect a proper song arrangement mode in the future?
And some more future pounding
** Will the LCD ever get a GUI overhaul (it reminds me of a safe chell phone for the elderly
**Will saving FX and synths presets ever be on a pattern level?
(It would greatly expand the pattern pool)
Sample slice and loop are the samplist greatest tools
**Will there ever be a Sampler plugin? Fruiting these options
What is the ETA on the next firmware update?
Thanks for your time to all on team Polyend for creating such a brilliant platform/ instrument
With love and respect
