Polyend's description of the Polyend Poly 2 polyphonic MIDI to CV converter
The Ultimate MIDI to CV Converter
There are many excellent, functional MIDI tools and devices
(DAWs, controllers, sequencers, keyboards, drum pads, etc.)
and as many fantastic Eurorack modules. Poly 2 seamlessly
connects these worlds thanks to its multiple inputs and outputs
and loads of configurable parameters.
Connect your computer, smartphone to its USB port; your class compliant MIDI controllers via USB Host, and all the other device via the MIDI jack port. A whole array of analogue outputs give you the versatility to hook up loads of different types of modules. Easily adjust every setting you need thanks to the OLED screen with a straightforward menu system. Set, save and recall your the parameters with a click of an encoder.
Dimensions: 14HP wide, 24mm deep.
We love MIDI, especially for its vast number of applications.
In order to be compatible with every MIDI device,
Poly 2 gives you a wide array of customisable parameters.
It also works excellent with MPE devices.
On the other side, there are a lot of voltage norms.
Poly 2 shines here too. With its various standards
for Pitch and Gate, it gets together with Eurorack modules,
Buchla and every other CV operated instrument.
Four modes, totally different possibilities
First and Next modes are perfect for building your unique polyphonic synthesizer.
Channel mode lets you choose which MIDI Channel is responsible for which voice. This mode is what the majority of users utilise to connect DAWs or external sequencers.
Note mode translates data received from MIDI Notes C through G and directs them into the corresponding voices (no matter the octave). This scenario works excellent for triggering drums from drum pads or drum triggers.
