It's no secret we've been excited by Polyend's polyphonic SEQ hardware sequencer since we first saw it at Musikmesse 2016. And we're thrilled to find out it's now available and is shipping later this month. Here's what the awesome folks at Polyend have to say about SEQ.
The idea behind SEQ was to craft the ultimate hardware step sequencer. 32 steps, 8 polyphonic tracks, 256 pattern storage - all enclosed within the highest quality aluminum and wooden housing.
Most of the functions are available directly from the front panel and all its features give the quickest and most natural way to bring ideas to light. And, when user got them together, rest assured they wonÊ¼t get lost thanks to the autosave function.
Most of the parameters and values can be read from the SEQ interface at a glance. For the rest of them, we provide a bright and sharp screen. Minimalistic, stripped down from any distractions, it brings all the information user needs in any performing conditions meet.

Oh, and don't forget there's also POLY, a Polyphonic MIDI to CV Converter too.
Polyend wanted to incorporate direct and seamless connections between SEQ and voltage control universes, which we they quite fond of. POLY is an Eurorack module with implemented configuration reflecting SEQÊ¼s eight channels. It converts the MIDI signal to voltage values managing the Gate, Pitch, Velocity, and Modulation parameters of each step. Through CV outputs, any Eurorack array can be fed with all the musical content you just created using SEQ.
POLY is also available for pre-order.
First batch will be shipped in March/April 2017.
