teenage engineering PO-30 overview

  • 1Description

The Teenage Engineering PO-30 Metal Series Pocket Operators Super Set is a bundle of three Pocket Operators with cases and sync cables offering varied and inspiring sound creation and sequencing methods for producers, beat makers, and sound designers in studio sessions or on the go. It includes the PO-32 Tonic drum machine, the PO-33 KO micro sampler, the PO-35 Speak vocal synthesizer, three silicone cases, and three 3.5mm sync cables.

Each Pocket Operator features a built-in microphone and speaker, 3.5mm audio I/O, and an animated LCD display. In addition to having standard functions such as a sixteen-step sequencer, sixteen patterns, and parameter locks, different Pocket Operators boast various sampling, sequencing, and effects options unlike others. The cases provide anti-slip feet, battery protection, and enhanced button tactility.

 

  • PO-32 Pocket Operator Tonic Drum Machine

    Small enough to fit in your pocket and powered by a pair of AAA batteries, the Teenage Engineering PO-32 Pocket Operator Tonic is an analog drum synthesizer with 16 on-board sounds and limitless external timbres thanks to a collaboration with Magnus Lindström of Sonic Charges. Indeed, the product was developed by Magnus and Teenage Engineering to jam-pack the sound of Sonic Charge's well-regarded Microtonic drum synthesizer into the pocket operator's form factor, recreating the oscillators, envelopes, and filters from the original Microtonic plug-in.

    With 16 on-board sounds and 16 tweakable effects, the PO-32 is not merely a replica of the Microtonic. Instead, you can actually create custom sounds in the Microtonic plug-in and transfer them from your computer to the PO-32 by means of its on-board, receptive microphone. Thus, you can take the sound of the software with you in a highly tweakable analog format. You can also share sounds you've tweaked with other users of the PO-32 in a similar manner as described above. Conversely, you can receive data from your friends'/collaborators' PO-32.

    The unit's parameters can be locked, while a 16-step sequencer, which holds 16 patterns in memory, can be chained into a song. An integrated clock and alarm clock expand 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. A foldout 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 truly unique music-making device.

    Transfer Microtonic Sound to your Pocket Operator
    You can craft your own unique sounds in Microtonic and send them wirelessly to the PO-32 by means of its microphone. Conversely, you can download sounds and patterns from Sonic Charge's online Rhythm-Generator Patternarium.
    Lock Tab
    Adding to the PO-32's guerrilla mentality is a breakaway lock tab, which allows you to permanently protect all written patterns, restoring all tweaked parameters to locked settings any time you remove the unit's batteries. This process is reversible by soldering the two pads located by the lock tab together.
    Transfer Capability
    You can transfer sound and pattern data directly between separate PO-32 Tonics using the built-in speaker and microphone, or using the 3.5mm line in/out connectors.
    Backup Capability
    Sound and pattern data can be stored to any device for saving and sharing. You can back up the data via built-in microphone or line out. Likewise, you can restore data from a transmitting unit.
  • PO-33 KO Pocket Operator Micro Sampler

    The Teenage Engineering PO-33 KO is a micro sampler designed to provide easy and creative sound creation and sequencing for producers, beat makers, and sound designers in studio sessions or on the go. Record up to forty seconds worth of samples via the built-in microphone or 3.5mm stereo input jack to any of the eight melodic slots or eight drum slots. Utilize the sixteen-step sequencer and sixteen patterns to program your samples into a beat or melody, then choose from sixteen effects for additional manipulation.

    Monitor through the built-in speaker or connect the 3.5mm stereo audio output to a mixer or headphones. The audio I/O can also be used for jam syncing multiple Pocket Operators and backing up, restoring, and transferring sound and pattern data. An integrated clock and alarm clock expand the creative possibilities of the instrument, which is powered via two AAA batteries (available separately) for mobile convenience. A foldout stand enables both hands to be used for more efficient operation.
