Tracker 1.7.1 firmware update is available

Hello Backstage!

We’re announcing the official Polyend Tracker 1.7.1 firmware update.


  • Randomly freezing during playback with a buzzing sound at the output
  • Occasionally Envelopes in Instrument Automation are skipped (not triggered) during playback
  • Playhead in Import window runs slower than audio playback after moving the endpoint
  • Time counter in the header (0m:00s) runs slower than real-time
  • Tap Tempo function is not accurately calculating the tapped tempo


  1. Download and extract the firmware file
  2. Copy the .ptf firmware file to your Tracker SD card > Firmware folder
  3. Optional: save your current project to avoid any potential data loss
  4. Navigate to Config > Firmware > Update Firmware > .ptf file
  5. Press Select and confirm with Yes
  6. Navigate to File > Create New Project to correctly initialize Config settings

The firmware update file is available here.

With kind regards
Polyend Team


After 1.7.1 update, still freezing when I scan through Radio frequencies with the jog wheel.

I also deleted the hidden workspace folder, which didn’t solve for me.

That would be expected as that issue was not part of the fixes for this particular patch.

I am dragging through the fm radiofreq on the sample recorder page on the 1.7.0 and no freezing.

Installed 1.7.1 hot fix , scrolling fast and slow through fm radiofreq and zero freeze.

What steps am I missing to replicate?

Hi @creativeunderdogs and @aaronmcfarlin , the fix for freezing when scrolling through radio frequencies is not part of this update. If you’re interested, you can follow and contribute to the topic here and we’ll inform you as soon as it gets fixed. Thanks
