Just feed it!

Perc works with any MIDI transmitting device. It doesn't matter whether you need to reach for the newest version of your favorite DAW, beloved drum machine, or smartphone app. Just connect it via USB or classic MIDI DIN output.


"The Perc has opened up a whole new world of inspiration. It has essentially unleashed my rhythms that have been kept “inside the box” into the physical realm. Instead of relying on my sample library and attempting to make those samples sound organic through mixing and production techniques, I can now let physical materials do the work for me. The hardware store, my garage, kitchen and everything else in the physical world have become my new drum kit."

Controlling real Drums with Arcade Buttons (Live)

Courtesy of Gil Assayas: "In this video, I control an acoustic drum kit through my Arcadia controller using 4 Polyend Perc drumming machines. Every sound you hear is performed live simultaneously, no overdubs or sequences."

"Perc is amazing, beaters are really easy to set up! Had them working in a very short amount of time on various drums. It's really well made, about time someone made something like this!."
Aphex Twin
"The Perc has opened up a whole new world of inspiration. The hardware store, my garage, kitchen and everything else in the physical world have become my new drum kit."
Travis Stewart (Machinedrum, Jets, Sepalcure)
"The machines you've made are very impressive! Straight out of the box it was up and working in no time. Utterly simple. The hi hats we got going made it straight into a track!"
Jamie Lidell
"Perc is a must for any creative musician but for drummers, this is the best invention since the bass drum pedal."
Rob Turner (GoGo Penguin)
"I think Perc is amazing. More than I expected. I'm so happy with it. Can't wait to play more."
Orri Páll Dýrason (Sigur Rós)
"Yesterday festival was a dream. Perc worked like a champion."
"WTF! This is the next level. I want like 10 now..."
Matthew Dear
"This is just brilliant, amazing."
Adrian Utley (Portishead)
"Perc is an absolute dream come true for me. I do a lot of finger drumming, and even though triggering samples is nice and all, the ability to control a real drum kit live (with no latency at all) is simply amazing and takes my performances to a whole new level! It's so easy to set up, too!"
Gil Assayas (GLASYS)
"I am loving this machine so much. It is really all my dreams come true. I have many ideas but I need more beaters to make the rhythms in my head...”
Paul Godfrey (Morcheeba)
"... the craziest concept I've seen! If you're a creative person there are so many applications for it. The newest member of my family... Yeah baby!"
Trevor Lawrence Jr. (Herbie Hancock, Stevie Wonder, Quincy, Snoop, Dr. Dre, Kendrick Lamar, Alicia Keys, Eminem)
"I've been blasting on the nine Perc units that I have and really love them. They will be heavily featured on all my future recordings."
Dan Deacon
"Polyend’s Perc is an innovative product that works well, and turns the usual in-the-box trend on its head, with excellent results. I think it could be a very welcome addition to their arsenals of music-making tools."
“Can be combined with any set of drums to create robotic virtual drummers, to augment a traditional drum kit or to create live acoustic drumming that explores a territory that might be impossible for a human drummer.”
“This is one of the coolest ideas we’ve seen in a long time (...) it should be an absolute sensation to enhance live performances, both musical and experimental.”
Future Music
“Perc units can easily be integrated into a live drumming setup to supplement, rather than replace, the humanoid unit.”
"Big‑name artists such as Aphex Twin, Daedelus, Dan Deacon and Orri Páll Dýrason (drummer with Sigur Rós) are already fans, so perhaps we really need to be thinking less D‑R‑U‑M and more E‑D‑M."
