At Machina Bristronica 2023, we spoke to Wim Van den Borre from Per-Sonal about their innovative software application Polynator that adds a new dimension to monophonic samplers like the DigiTact or TR-8S. The application, compatible with various platforms, including iPad, Raspberry Pi, Mac, and Windows, transforms your monophonic sampler into a polyphonic synthesizer. It introduces features like pitch bends, modulation wheel functions, and grouped parameters (macros) assignable to any CC value, greatly expanding the capabilities of your sampler. Wim demonstrated how you can set it up once and then play with one-note chords and pitch bends, making it versatile for live performances and studio work. The app also facilitates complex MIDI routing and customization, allowing you to get creative with your music setup. With an expected price of around €29, it's an affordable and powerful tool for musicians looking to enhance their monophonic samplers.
