Power Polyend Tracker with Hapax Host Port


I’ve looked around in this forum and online quite a bit, but was wondering if anyone here is powering the Polyend Tracker from the Host port on the Hapax and sending midi from the Tracker into Hapax over the usb as well.


I’ve had issues with this setup in the past. The Tracker will power on and does receive MIDI over the host port, but eventually (usually within a few minutes) the Tracker freezes or shuts down, I assume for power delivery issues.

FWIW I’m using the revision 1 Polyend Tracker (full metal enclosure, square buttons, loud clicking on power-up).

Thank you for the info! I will try it out upon delivery of the Tracker. I also have a use power / data splitter cable one the way to test out with it as well.
