Grayscale POKIT Turns Teenage Engineering Pocket Modular 16 Into Eurorack Module

Grayscale has introduced POKIT, a conversion kit that lets you turn the Teenage Engineering Model 16 Pocket Operator Keyboard (POM-16) into a Eurorack module.

POKIT includes a Eurorack-compatible front panel, a power conversion adapter that plugs directly into your Eurorack power distribution board, custom fasteners to connect everything together, and gray knobs supplied by Teenage Engineering.

The Model 16 Pocket Operator Keyboard (POM-16) is a standalone device that offers four channels of powerful modular sequencing, arpeggiation, and quantizing functionality. Because the Teenage Engineering modular system was designed for compatibility with Eurorack CV standards, though, POKIT is all that’s required to convert the standalone POM-16 into a Eurorack module that works with your existing Eurorack case and power supply.

Pricing and Availability

POKIT is available now, priced at $115 with keyboard, $95 without.

  1. Not getting the form over function design choices of late. TE would appear to be struggling to take their aesthetic downmarket without compromising the resulting products too much. Uncomfortable looking little knobs & a sweaty membrane are another backward step. Different needs to be equal or better, not inferior.

      1. Conventional circular knobs distributes pressure on the fingertips evenly, the Moog style knurled wheel give grip but are comfortable. I can look at these and see they will not be as pleasant to use. I don’t have to have the unit in front of me, just 59 years of sensory experience ;-).

        Every membrane I have ever used – once the fingers are warm and transferring moisture – feels unpleasant. It also is harder to use such a layout without looking at the unit as there is no physical differentiation between switch areas.

        I like forward thinking product design. This doesn’t cut it for me.
        On the upside – it’s well priced & maybe the knobs could be swapped out.

        1. i guess it designed to younger people, the keyboard is very responsive and the knobs are actually great in use, try it, you will be surprised. tactile is not an issue, this is a keyboard to press like a button on a machine, not intended to play blindly and you can do things you can’t do with regular keyboard.
          some things work so great and get you to interested places that you don’t think about the cons.
          if you want what you use to why not buy just it. there are so many “regular” keyboard. variety is great…
