Overview

Experience a fresh new way to create music using your thumbs. With its pocket size, its animated graphics, real synthesizer engines, sync, punch-in effects, built-in speaker, alarm clock and impossibly low price, making electronic music has never been this much fun. The Pocket Operator - Rhythm (PO-12) drum synthesizer and sequencer features real synthesised drum sounds, sampled drum sounds, 16 punch-in effects including delay, bit crusher and filters, parameter locks, individual step re-trig and more.

Pocket operators are cleverly designed on a single circuit board. By placing all vital and sensitive components under the LCD display there's no need for an outer case, which saves costs and leaves room for high quality components to guarantee the best possible sound and very low power consumption. The space under the display also doubles as a speaker box.

      Comments about Teenage Engineering Pocket Operator - Rhythm (PO-12):

      This drum machine beats out anything in its price range. 16 Instruments with 2-Parameter Per-Step Editing with 16 Patterns that can be chained together with up to 16 variations of pattern and 16 effects that are applicable by pattern step. Has Sync In/Out, but no MIDI.

      Comments about Teenage Engineering Pocket Operator - Rhythm (PO-12):

      The PO-12 is the first in the series that I acquired. It has some preset beats which will help you get familiar with its sounds and combinations. I'd recommend making your own beats as presets. In addition to beats it has a few tonal sounds, which the pitch can be adjusted (via the knobs). The tones can only be pitched by ear, so I'd recommend the PO-20 Arcade if you are wanting specific chords and chordal sequences. Be sure to add the extended warranty. My first PO was broken due to a drop, and I was covered. This is a fun device for musicians at any age or level that is interested in electronic music.
