Tracker Mini - USB audio outputs numbering and order

What is the problem?

Currently the Polyend Tracker Mini has audio output over USB with separate tracks, which is really nice.However the way they are organized and displayed in the software is quite confusing and makes the initial configuration for example for multi-tracking from the Tracker Mini more complicated.
The change is… probably easy to make but will bring a lot of convenience.

What do you want to achieve?

The most logical way to present them would be starting with 1/2 for track 1, 2/3 for track 2 … and at the very end, the last two channels should be the stereo master.

In that type of configuration, it’s very easy for someone to say for exemple that track 5 is the 9/10 pair : you just need to multiply by two and you identify immediately the right pair to map/route. And it’s also easy to identify the stereo master pair, as it’s the last two ones. It’s a convention used to multi-track devices I’ve seen so far.

Are there any workarounds?

We can still use the audio outputs as is, but it’s confusing and not usual way of organizing and ordering them.

Any links to related discussions?

Any references to other products?

Tascam Model or Soundcraft MTK mixers for example provide the master stereo pair as the two last channels, so are some Roland groove boxes or synths that provide multiple outputs (MC, MV lineup or Jupiter X/Xm/Juno X).


Does this really work? I can’t see any device when I connect it to my Mac.

Do you have a mini or Og tracker ? It’s a feature for the mini only (at least currently).

@here Thanks for your wish. It’s now ready for voting :slight_smile:
