With the end of Superbooth 21 last week, the product rumors for the next one start with a leak of a possible new Polyend groovebox.
The Superbooth 21 is officially over. It was a real festival, thank you, Mr. Schneider. All new products are packed back in their boxes and return to the developers’ sound labs until they are ready for official release.
Even if fewer manufacturers (150) found their way to Berlin this year, there were a lot of new products to discover. Synthesizers, drum machines, Eurorack modules, and more. At the Polyend booth, there was a brand-new product on display for a short time, which is not yet officially out. A Synth Anatomy reader sent me the picture.
Superbooth 21 Polyend Leak
With its tracker, Polyend has revived the era of the tracker in a mobile groove box with many modern features. Including a granular sampler, wavetable synthesis, and more. If you look at the leaked photo, you can see another compact groove box. Yes, it reminds you a lot of the Synthstrom Deluge at first glance. Mainly because of the many small pad controllers that are supposed to be used here for input and visualization of the sequencer.
But there are clear differences: On the one hand, there is a small display on the left side to visualize the parameters and others. On the other, there are a lot of knobs above the pads. With these, you can probably adjust the engine in detail. Speaking about the engine. Since I only have this picture, I can’t say anything about the built-in engine. We’ll see whether it’s a new one or the super versatile and always growing one from the Tracker groove box with granular sampler, wavetable, and more.
The same applies to the sequencer, connectivity… yes, all these questions can only be answered in detail later during the official announcement/release.
It will stay exciting at Polyend. After the Tracker, the next portable groovebox seems to be on its way. Stay tuned for all the details. Don’t forget to check out my complete coverage on the website, and on YouTube with upcoming videos from Superbooth 21.
