Play+ (Play Plus) is a 16-track Sample and Synth-based groovebox

Polyend Play+ is a 16 track sample and synthesizer based groovebox with multitimbral polyphonic sounds, stereo functionality and audio over USB.

Play+ takes the features and experience of the original Play instrument to new heights. Play+ is a complete musical production and live performance instrument using both stereo sample and synthesis engine audio sources for creating beats and building musical arrangements.

Three synthesizers can be configured from the four available synthesis models. Three unique analog emulations and one FM model are all available as sound sources and can be used for sequencing. Samples can also be used as the sound source. Over 5000 stereo and mono samples are provided to get started but you can add your own using the supplied Micro SD Card.

Both the capacity to create complete song arrangements and the skill to engage in live improvisation are equally supported. The freedom to mix, play and sequence tracks and work both with synths, audio samples and control external polyphonic MIDI devices balances the ‘in the box’ thinking with ‘out of the box’ integration. Play+ is ideal as the central element in an integrated studio setup using the 8 Polyphonic MIDI / Synth tracks alongside the 8 audio tracks.

A set of onboard effects including delay, reverb and saturation spice up the entire mix. Play+ has an expansive range of features including audio over USB for even tighter integration with other audio gear and digital audio workstations.

The objective is to create and perform by coupling less traditional techniques alongside familiar processes to capture musical ideas and perform full song arrangements. User experience is at the heart of Play+ workflow and follows simple processes that enable almost instantaneous productions and advanced audio design and music creation
