Teenage Engineering, a company that oozes innovation has teamed up with Swedish fashion brand, Cheap Monday to launch the Pocket Operator series. These remarkable small and smooth synthesizers are designed to be used by everyone, making music creation as fun and free-form as possible all whilst delivering premium sound, features and effects.
The Teenage Engineering PO-12 Rhythm synthesizer uses real sampled drum sounds at its core, how you use them is where the fun begins. The PO-12 contains 16 unique patterns to get you started and a 16-step sequencer for when you want to make your own unique beats.
Wan't something a bit more complex? The PO-12 delivers here too thanks to its ability to chain 16 patterns together which will expand your loops into a full song. To really beef up your beats, the PO-12 contains 16 effects including delay, bit-crusher and stutter for some filthy Glitch sounds.
The Teenage Engineering PO-12 leaves nothing to the imagination with all circuitry, components and artwork exposed. The built in LCD screen features clear visual guides on pattern style, tempo, mode and sync info as well as some quirky animations.
Underneath the PO-12, you will spot the caddy for 2 x AAA batteries that will power the unit for a staggering amount of time! These sit snugly under the built in stand.
Better with friends
As with the other Pocket Operators, the PO-12 has a built in Jam Sync feature complete with audio through thanks to the built in 3.5mm jack in/out connections. Depending on how you want to connect your units, you can choose from one of 5 sync modes that can utilise stereo audio or divide the left and right signals to chain mono audio on one channel and a pulse on the other.
You can even use an iPhone, Korg Volca or computer as a sync master or slave making the PO-12 feel at home in your existing set up! Highly functional with a capital Fun, the Teenage Engineering PO-12 Pocket Operator Rhythm Synthesizer will give you a fresh perspective on beat creativity.
