Xor Electronics transforms its well-known NerdSEQ into a portable hardware device with the option to expand it with triggers, CVs and more
Crazy timing. A day before the actual presentation of the Polyend Tracker audio workstation, XOR Electronics comes around the corner and presents the NerdSEQ Portable without a big teaser spectacle. One week, two hardware tracker workstations, no bad. Probably the year of the trackers!
According to the developer, it’s a tracker based hardware sequencer with sampling, MIDI I/O, modulators, sound generators an more. It features 8 tracks for each polyphonic sequencing for different destinations, yes polyphonic not monophonic.
Modulators, Effects & More
Where other trackers save something, Xor Electronics gives its portable tracker a wide range of connections. On the backside, you a stereo line out, headphone out, line input, USB and the Expander port for NSA with which you can integrate the NerdSEQ Eurorack Expanders (CV16, Trigger16…).
- 3.5″ Colour Graphics IPS display with a resolution of 480 x 320 pixels
- microSD connector accessible for project and sample management
- Integrated Sound synthesizer
- …..and much more….
The release is planned for late summer 2020, but could be delayed due to the Convoid-19 problematic. The official price is not yet announced. As a reminder: the classic Eurorack NerdSEQ cost 486,78€ without tax including the expander. So it’s possible that the portable version will cost around the same price but not sure!
