Polyend Introduces Tracker Mini

The highly-acclaimed Tracker has evolved.


19 April 2023

Polyend’s Tracker Mini is a portable standalone audio workstation with eight tracks to sequence stereo audio and MIDI, audio-over-USB functionality, a built-in battery and microphone, gamepad quality buttons and a host of sampling and sound design tools. With an improved user interface, more memory, stereo sampling, and performance enhancements, we made it even more powerful. 

Only Small In Size

Building on the success of the original Tracker, the Polyend Tracker Mini is packed with features that make it an ideal companion for music producers on the go. The Mini is smaller, lighter, and more powerful than its predecessor. New features include stereo sample playback, audio over USB, a high-quality onboard microphone, and an onboard battery. The Mini also features lower latency and a faster CPU.

Polyend listened to feedback from users of the original Tracker and incorporated popular feature requests into the Mini, including upgraded headroom, easier project management, and a refined signal path for more transparent audio playback, making it the perfect tool for live performances and impromptu jam sessions.

According to Piotr Raczynski, CEO of Polyend, “The Polyend Tracker Mini is the portable instrument that I’ve been dreaming of for years. I’ve been using trackers since I was eleven, and I’ve always thought the interface was perfect as a travel companion. Before the original tracker was created, we started developing the platform as a portable battery-powered unit. Part delays and sourcing issues made us switch gears, so we built the original tracker in desktop format. The original Tracker was received so well that we extended development time and upgraded the Mini. Now we have a portable tracker that is more powerful with a lot of room for us to continue to develop the tracker and add new features well into the future.”

Despite its advanced features, the Polyend Tracker Mini is easy to use and suitable for both experienced and novice music producers. Whether you’re familiar with the original Tracker or new to the Polyend ecosystem, you’ll find that the Tracker Mini’s workflow is easy to pick up, allowing you to get creative in no time.
