Pocket Chiptune generator

Comments about Teenage Engineering Pocket Operator - Arcade PO-20:

The Pocket Operator series continues its legacy of solid builds for good prices with low learning curves and surprising sound quality. Big improvements in the PO 20 include solo modes to play melody, bass and beat separately. The new fill options are also a step up from the drills of the PO12. The trade off is that fx can't be saved in real time anymore. However, the hud has more useful information now even if it is still rather busy. While lack of midi is a bummer still, the Pocket Operators sync with other equipment easily and very effortlessly thanks to solid clocking. They can also clock out to cv-synchable gear. A grreat library of sounds with good filtering and also a hidde drone synth that sounds great when stuttered witheffects. Let's be honest - this thing makes video game music. But compared to the nanoloop or similar chiptune devices, the ease of use and quality sound on this far outweigh the tradeoffs.
