Poly is a unique generative sequencer that harnesses the power of poly-rhythms to create intricate and exciting patterns.

Different coloured nodes are added to a circular area. The closer a node is to middle, the faster it repeats. Each node has its own sample, FX settings and keyboard. There are five available colours and up to 12 nodes maximum.

Poly comes with over 40 preset sounds, including a selection of awesome 808 samples!

Other features include:

- Audiobus integration
- Ableton Link
- Audio Copy and Paste
- AudioShare file sharing
- Virtual / Hardware MIDI
- Saving and Loading of Patterns
- Recording of performances
- Dropbox upload and download
