Polyend SEQ Polyphonic Step Sequencer Now Available To Order

The Polyend SEQ step sequencer – a 32 step, 8-track polyphonic step sequencer – is now available to pre-order.

The idea behind SEQ was to craft the ultimate hardware step sequencer,” they note, “32 steps, 8 polyphonic tracks, 256 pattern storage – all enclosed within the highest quality aluminum and wooden housing.

Here’s an overview of SEQ, from Polyend founder Piotr Raczynski:

In addition to the new sequencer, Polyend’s new POLY polyphonic MIDI-to-CV Eurorack module is also now available for pre-order.

It converts the MIDI signal to voltage values managing the Gate, Pitch, Velocity, and Modulation parameters of each step. Through CV outputs, you can control complete Eurorack systems with sequences created on the SEQ.

Price and Availability

SEQ is available now for pre-order for US $999 and POLY for $399. BOth are expected to ship in the March/April 2017 timeframe. See the Polyend site for details.

    i´ve read the specs. it seems as if there´s no song mode, not even a pattern chain function. reminds me of that jd-xa sequencer train wreck. *facepalm*

    “8 polyphonic tracks”? hm… i don´t think so. the guy from polyend only records monophonic. in order to play a chord out of three notes he uses three tracks for that undertaking. can i record chords individually into each track? how many notes of polyphony can the seq handle as a whole? and how many for each track?

    1. Stefan, good questions. Let me answer:
      There is a song mode and we will add an option to chain patterns. We are working on software now. Once it’s done we will post videos explaining all the features.
      You are right about polyphony. Each track is one voice so 8 voices polyphony maximum.

    1. right. although i would think the cirklon is way more complicated; maybe too cumbersome, i don´t know. its pattern storage is comprised of 2mb battery-backed internal ram, with internal flash and an sd/mmc card socket for data backup. no word so far on how polyend´s SEQ stores data externally. the polish company does not provide a specs sheet so far, but they want people to purchase right now – without giving them vital information about the product. i find that irritating, to put it mildly.

  3. Is it open source? Looks very nice hardware, but needs to be open source. Sequencer programming always misses a few points, and that’s really the killer feature of hw boxes like this – being able to add strange methods like node-based and conditional triggering.
