A new Groovebox, Synthesizer or Sequencer from Polyend? A first glimpse was given in September, today a second leak reveals more about it.
The Superbooth 21 took place in the middle of September last year. An exception. The fair wasn’t finished yet, so a picture appeared on a new Polyend product. I report on this leak in an article linked below. After that it became quiet. Certainly not in the Polyend laboratories where they are working hard on the new product.
Today there was movement in the topic. Polyend apparently posted a story on Instagram where they briefly show the device. But the clip no longer exist. Good, the internet does not forget. Maciek Polak (@analogia.pl) also posted the same story which was captured and uploaded to Imgur.
Polyend Deluge-style groovebox?
The photo from September already previewed an instrument with many pads. The new video from today confirms the first impression. It is somewhat reminiscent of the Deluge Groovebox which is also programmable with a huge pad matrix.
You can see a pad matrix that may have 8×32 lines, a display on the left, and a handful of controllers. The story was also picked up in the Electronauts forum where a user called Reloy wrote:
…ok…i spoil as little as possible if i say…it’ll be no next tracker but also no synth… while the form factor will be, somehow, some kind of familiar…
The timbres you hear sound synthetic and also like samples. A mix would fit to a groove box. VA, FM, wavetable, no information on this but we know that the Polyend developers have already built this into other products including the Medusa, Tracker…
Or I’m completely wrong and will be a kind of successor to the SEQ sequencer. In a more compact form and with many creative features.

So far we can only guess what it can be. It will be exciting. All the details will be known by the Superbooth 22 in May at the latest. One thing is certain: it was a planned leak for the community.
