  1. It’s clever that you can buy an $89, highly portable drum machine that can playback presets that you make in $99 software (microtonic). I wonder if they offer any kind of bundled or discounted price for microtonic with the PO-32 purchase. That would be a nice bonus.

    That software looks pretty fun. I think it’s kind of similar to DM-2.

  2. is it worth it without using the micro tonic app?

    imagine if teen age made a little drum sampler /sequencer with P.locks and punch in fx in the form of one of these little boxes!!!

  3. Magnus is an under appreciated or under recognized genius when it comes to synth development. Hopefully this fixes it. 🙂
