Description & Specs

16 Track Groovebox + Synth + Sequencer
Introducing Play+, the next-generation groovebox. Immerse yourself in richer stereo sounds, explore multitimbral polyphonic synthesis, and experience seamless audio over USB.  

Advanced Cababilities with an Intuitive Interface
With Play+, you can create complex evolving patterns by balancing advanced sequencing options with intuitive control. With deep generative capabilities, randomization functions, and track-specific swing, length, and speed adjustments, as well as a performance mode and step-by-step parameter sequencing, there's plenty to choose from. Synthesizer engines, MIDI tracks, and stereo samples can all be sequenced simultaneously.

Multitimbral Synthesizer
Besides samples and MIDI, Play+ has built-in synths! Choose from multiple synth engines, each with a unique sound. Each synth engine includes over 200 presets, all of which are professionally crafted and ready to inspire right out of the box. With intuitive multi-macros, you can shape and morph sounds so they fit exactly right. Keeping with Play's spirit, the synth engine is fast and easy to use. Pick and place interfaces, generative options, and scale locks make it easy for you to get started quickly.

Stereo Expansion
With Play+, we've transitioned from mono to stereo sample playback, allowing for a more nuanced and expansive sonic canvas. Experience your sounds with added depth, capturing the subtleties that make all the difference.  

Seamless Audio Over USB
Your sessions can be multitracked. Play+ allows you to send each track to your DAW separately, ensuring precision and flexibility in post-production. It's not just about ease of transfer; it also amplifies your mixing, mastering, and live performance potential. Play+ is built to complement every stage of your creative process - add polish to your songs, enhance your tracks with external effects, or add depth during a live performance.

If you decide you'd like to return an item, please contact your Sales Rep, chat us, or give us a call.

If you placed your order on Amazon or eBay, we advise issuing the return request from your account on the platform of purchase - our Customer Service team will process a refund upon receipt of the item(s).

Most new items may be returned within 30 days of delivery and most vintage & used items may be returned within 3 days of delivery for a full refund, exchange, or store credit.

We reserve the right to charge a restocking fee based on the return condition. Some items we just can’t take back for returns, due to a one time function like strings or drums heads and other times it’s not sanitary to do so with microphones or harmonicas.
