teenage engineering PO-12 overview

  • 1Description

Small enough to fit in your pocket and powered by a pair of AAA batteries, the Teenage Engineering PO-12 Rhythm Drum Synthesizer features both real synthesized drum sounds and sampled drum sounds with 16 punch-in effects including delay, bit crusher, and filters.

The synthesizer parameters can be locked while an auto compressor and hardware limiter ensure adequate signal generation without clipping.

A 16-step sequencer features 16 available patterns and up to 16 patterns can be chained together. An integrated clock and alarm clock expands the creative possibilities of the instrument. A jam sync function with 3.5mm audio in and out connections allows for multiple synthesizer units to be linked together.

Using high-quality components with low power consumption, the synthesizer is cleverly designed with a Silabs EFM 32 Gecko CPU, a Cirrus Logic DAC, and a Knowles speaker placed under a novel animated LCD on a single circuit board. A fold-out stand makes it easier to play, and rear-panel speaker solder terminals allow you hook up the unit to a larger sound system.

An optional tailor-made silicone pro case (sold separately) adds anti-slip feet, battery protection, and professional-feel buttons to this very unique music-making device.

    teenage engineering PO-12 reviews

    PO-12 Rhythm Drum Synthesizer is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Battery holder contacts bend I discovered that I can't operate the PO-12 in my hand since it puts tension on the batteries, bending the battery positive or negative contacts away from the battery. It should be operated on a firm surface. When removing the batteries, keep one finger pushing inwards towards the battery and use a flat head screwdriver to push the other end of the battery inward and upwards. If the contacts do bend, then remove the batteries and gently apply inward pressure to restore them to their original position. That aside, the price and number of sound variations make this synthesizer a buyer's deal.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome quality on the cheap This product is really great at an affordable price. It has sixteen drum sounds as well as sixteen effects and a sixteen step step sequencer. It's easy to carry around with you and has a really cool interface. I highly te comes this for anyone's electronic gif set up.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect gift This synthesizer was perfect for my son as he begins exploring music production as a career. I will be adding the others soon. My nephew must have been impressed as well, my sister asked me for the website. Product is sturdy and exactly as described.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fat Great, you can really make some fat beats on this machine, the only con i would have is that, it only stores 16 patterns so it's short for an entire live set, but sounds really really nice.
    Date published: 2015-08-07
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful drum machine & step sequencer, great price I love the PO-12 because it packs a lot of functionality into it's compact size and you get some really great drum sounds for an affordable price.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from There's more to the PO-12 than it seems... When plugged in, you will be surprised that much sound is coming from something so tiny and so well engineered. Once I was familiar with the controls and how to control the sounds it makes, I could string along patterns in such a way that made everything flow in a very organic and calculated way. Speaking for myself, being able to chain my pre programmed patterns together was what turned this from a nifty little drum machine that filled up my lunch breaks into a reliable and very useful tool I could use with any other device. For what it is, it's a terrific and enjoyable drum machine! I do wish I had a bit more control over pitch and modulation with some of the sounds but it's far from a deal breaker. Oh, it feels significantly more hefty than it looks. Synching the PO-12 with other pocket operators is a breeze. Final thought: I would go as far as to say that if you were holding one of these and playing with it in the store and happened to have the cash on you, odds are likely that you would take it home that day! Very much worth the purchase! It was also very kind of BnH to include batteries and a stereo cable! Happy playing!
