Next up somebody can search the trademark databases and maybe we can put a name on this shark.

I’m still impressed with how thin this is. That seems to be a trend for equipment now.

ADDED : Can there be much doubt on this being digital, not that Polyend does much analog, except when they did the development together with Dreadbox.

Shared development, that might also be a question, but my hunch is this is all Polyend, unless there was something in software done in combination.

It seems to be the same size as Tracker, with a plastic bottom and metal top case. It seems to be USB powered, too, just like Tracker, with a mini jack output/headphone combo. Smaller screen to accommodate more buttons. And no jog wheel which is the weak point in the Tracker design.

I like the holes in the side. This one will definitely be more aerodynamic.

I’ve seen this a few times today already, but I’m just now comprehending how many encoders are up there at the top.

Don’t even think they have knobcaps…

Is that Isobutane? If so, maybe there is audio from his set the detectives here could dissect? 🥸:face_with_monocle::nerd_face:

They over-corrected after seeing a couple people complain about the Tracker only having one knob

Absolutely you can see the CO tattoo in this video.

He’s had past association with Polyend right ?

By the way papertiger we’re being read by the magazine that posted this leak. Perhaps they already knew who this was.

Are you ready to get quoted in an article ?

He has done many videos/songs “for” Polyend on the Tracker. His songs in different genres helped to demonstrate that the Tracker is as flexible as a musician wants it to be (IMO). :slight_smile:

I never noticed the tattoos because I was usually not watching, just listening while doing dishes. :laughing:

My own preference is a built-in battery.

Knobs are so 2010s. It’s all trim pots now.

If this is a Deluge like device, TAKE MY MONEY NOW.

Fingers crossed for a Groovebox with synth capabilities and sampling capabilities.
My favorite thing on the Deluge was making synths from samples. Actually my favorite thing on every groovebox I own :slight_smile:

The korg wavestate is very powerful in this regard.
