Wow, nice demo. Great Holger Czukay-style samples there. I am instantly intrigued, though one must expect we are what -- six months from seeing it buyable. The most interesting thing I've seen since Pulsar-23.

maybe they can update the firmware in the SEQ first? A pattern reset option would be appreciated.

Polyend is teasing this on the homepage of its website too. Claims it's coming in March 2020.

I wonder if it it's complimentary to the Medusa or supercedes it?

I wonder why this isn’t getting more attention. I guess because we can put together a reasonable guess at what this is versus the silly videos That make up Elektrons teasers.

For a long time there were rumors that the grid of the medusa will become a separate product. which makes sense. Will see..

I’m interested in finding out what this product is but founded the “teaser” silly and pretentious. Just show the fucking device...

Elektron’s teaser was 5 days long and people were furious! This teaser doesn’t even have a specific date for release but not a lot of complaining from the polyend fans.

I’m looking forward to this, but the tease is just annoying.

Seems really childish and sets it up to be underwhelming like a Star Wars film...

Pritchard D Jams is apparently involved. If true it'll involve some new ideas (imo he's done some good stuff in the industry in recent years) so I'll be keen to see how it plays out.

the guys don´t get it.
i do rate this behaves btw. in the meantime as clear signs with whom i deal.
intelligent or stupid folks ?
its like putting down a signature

usually, the stupid ones screw it then further also on other corners.
its just what live has shown me.......
ymmv
For sale / reduced prices ( swiss (we are NON-EU)/ in case it makes sense_ EU/WW)(CHF +- = $):
lowered prices: Dotcom Q960: 650.- / Q119: 420 / ( i also have one or much likely two 19" Frames)
ATV A-Frame incl. Accu and Bag: 830.-, like new, quasi unused.

The article says “at this price” yada yada but can’t find any reference to the actual price.

I've been curious about trackers in general, but it also seems like a workflow type that I'd quickly fall out of.

Let's see some videos, pls

Oh yes, I'm definitely interested in this! Used trackers on the Amiga many years ago, a modern take on them could be interesting

Why does gear always seem to be “leaked” in Poland?

They made too many teasers. I think one or two max is fun. After that it is time to shit or get off the pot.

I like the aesthetic and am imagining all kinds of uses (esp. on-the-move use) but tbh have to see it in interaction to make up my mind about it. Might be really good OR not-for-me.
