The new firmware adds quite a lot of new features since we published our review:
We also took a look at their new Eurorack Modules:
Poly2 follows on from the Poly Eurorack giving you a 14HP up to 8 voice MIDI to CV with USB host mode.
With 20 configurations, you can hook up external MIDI/USB gear to multiple CV outputs such as clock, controller to CV etc. They call it the ultimate MIDI to CV €349 available June.
We also saw the new Polyend Preset:
Its got some chops from the Medusa in the way that the 32 pads allows for pitch and CV changes programmed per pad. 9 encoders output CV based on values programmed into the grid or via automation - per parameter.
