Polyend has released the Tracker Mini portable standalone audio workstation after months of speculation and leaks.

The Tracker Mini proceeds the Tracker workstation which received critical acclaim for its streamlined interface, deep editing capability and a large suite of sampling, sequencing, sound design and synthesis tools.

The Mini version includes many of these features, despite its smaller casing, and also includes many improvements to functionality, onboard storage, signal pathways and hardware options.

One of the improved features on the Tracker Mini is that is is MIDI-enabled via 3.5mm TRS jacks, meaning it can be used to sequence hardwardware synths, or be controlled by your DAW. In addition, users can also upload samples via microSD card or capture them on the unit through its onboard mic or line input.

The Tracker Mini also dons a display screen, with 32 gameplay-grade buttons and an intuitive interface.
