Who needs fancy frills like an outer case, when you've got the solid drum sounds, killer effects, and intuitive sequencing Teenage Engineering's Pocket Operator PO-12 rhythm machine has to offer? Onboard this streamlined PC board, you'll find access to 16 tweakable drum sounds, a 16-step sequencer with 16 chainable patterns, and 16 effects you can use to sweeten things up. Components such as a Silicon Labs EFM32 Gecko MCU, a Cirrus Logic DAC, and a Knowles speaker deliver high-quality sound that even raise once-skeptical eyebrows among electronic-music enthusiasts. Plus, the Pocket Operator PO-12 runs so efficiently on just a pair of AAA batteries, that its standby time is measured in years. What's more, the PO-12 and the rest of the Pocket Operator line can sync to one another (and many other modular synths) over 1/8" cables, so you can integrate them into a larger tabletop rig.
Get the party going or the dance floor hopping with these electric beats coming out of a circuit board. Nicely designed with minimalist grandeur, space age tiny synths that do a good job, pocket operators are a delight when mixed with bigger units like a Microkorg.
When I first got this great little drum machine it took me a while to fully understand it. Once I understood this pocket operator I felt a huge boost of creativity and the bonus is I can continue creating fun rhythms anywhere I go. I always bring this with me everywhere I go.
this is a very good drum machine, I use it for live performances and in the studio, but it is hard to record because of how low of an audio level it puts out, I like being able to make patterns with it and playing with it, it's a little better than the factory because of how good it sounds
this is an alright drum machine. got some good effects and some good sounds. you will however get bored of the sounds and the bundled effects sooner or later. i'd recommend getting some pedals to put this through, although, keep in mind this does not use a standard 1/4" cable, uses a 3.5mm cable, so you'll prob need a converter. yet to try that, cause i don't have any pedals, maybe when i get a 3.5mm to 1/4" cable and i'm at my grandpa's house, know he has a couple of pedals.
When I travel I often take a few Teenage Engineering Pocket Operators with me for fun and use them with TE's OP-1. Reasonable price for the fun and they sound better than you think through decent monitors.
