Teenage Engineering PO-32 Tonic Pocket Drum Machine Hands-On Demo

At the 2017 NAMM Show, we talked with with Magnus Lidström of Sonic Charge about his new collaboration with Teenage Engineering on the PO-32 Tonic Pocket Operator Drum Machine.

The PO-32 offers a wide range of sonic capabilities, punch-in FX and a built-in microphone that allows direct transfer of sounds and pattern data between units,.

It also features compatibility with Sonic Charge’s Microtonic, which lets you create new patches and pattern data, and transfer them wirelessly back to the PO-32 Tonic. This means that you can easily import, export and share PO-32 music.

Price and Availability

The PO-32 Tonic is available now as a bundle with Microtonic for US $139, and will be available by itself in April for $89.

    1. I agree.

      I have two of the first ones and they sorta just sit in a drawer with the Monotrons and other little pocket gadgets I have bought over time.

      They are fun and can produce really cool music, but I will often go to the tools that are rigged up and in front of me, rather than messing around hooking up other stuff.

      Then again, the portability is nice…
