Polyend has released three new Artist’s Edition Trackers, each with a distinctive design by three artists that have created music with the instrument. Legowelt, Pete Cannon and Bogdan Raczynski have all collaborated with Polyend on a new Limited Edition Tracker, complete with their own designs – and they’ve also included a wealth of original music files.
Each Tracker also comes with a vinyl EP from each of the artists. These feature similar designs to their respective Trackers and will surely brighten up your studio. Polyend’s Limited Edition releases are limited to 300 units per artist, however, so you’ll need to be quick if one takes your fancy.
Legowelt’s brightly coloured Tracker comes preloaded with 26 original projects that can be used to learn the power of Polyend’s instrument. It also features over 5,000 samples made by Legowelt.
Pete Cannon’s Tracker, seemingly inspired by the Commodore 64, comes with sample projects and an exclusive sample pack.
Bogdan Raczynski’s banana-flavoured Tracker features samples projects along with a sample pack and inspiration booklet made by Bogdan.
Making music with tracking software is not a new concept. In fact, the approach to music-making has been around for over 30 years. Everyone from Calvin Harris and deadmau5 to Aphex Twin and Venetian Snares has been known to make magic with tracking software. Check out our History of Trackers feature for an in-depth history.
In our review of the Tracker, we said: “Polyend’s Tracker is not a toy. Although its capabilities are limited compared to contemporary tracker software, it has a steep learning curve. Even for those who learnt to make music on the OctaMED, it can take a while to get your head around the Tracker’s architecture. Those prepared to put the time in and get the muscle memory down will find themselves able to operate the Tracker much more efficiently”.
Polyend’s Artist Edition Trackers are available to order now, each costing $799. Polyend says the Trackers will ship in a month and the companion vinyl releases will ship separately in late summer 2021.
