Teenage Engineering introduced three new Pocket Operator synthesizers at the 2016 NAMM Show,
In this video, Gaz Williams shares his Pocket Operator review of the new Office, Arcade and Robot models.
Each of the Pocket Operators features a 16-step sequencer, 128 pattern chaining, ‘parameter lock’ and punch in effects:
- The PO-24 Office is a noise percussion drum machine.
- The PO-28 Robot is described as a ‘live synthesizer voice’ for 8-bit chiptune style sounds.
- The PO-20 Arcade offers classic 80’s arcade style sounds with an additional chord playback function.
The Pocket Operators are $59 each, but as Williams notes in his review, most users will probably want one of the cases also, priced at $39. See the Teenage Engineering site for details.
