Big Tick and Morty fan so was super stoked to see they made a PO of R&M. Also super fast shipping.

This is my first PO and I'm really loving it. It's a little complicated at first, kind of daunting really, and it doesn't come with very much in the way of instructions. BUT there are tons of videos on youtube that will help you figure it out, and it's worth the effort. So much fun.

Feels very exclusive. Too bad no case came with it(sold seperately) Getting use to the patterns and able to reset to factory is a plus. The packaging is cool and the volume a bit low but at least not loud and annoying to others. Havent tried headphones yet but i bet its clear. Tricky to get battery out. You’ll need to watch a video or pry the tip of one battery up and then slip it out

Fun and addicting

This is actually my second PO and it is distinct from other PO's being a vocal synthesizer and not an actual sampler, meaning that it can change the actual pitch of the synthesized recording. I'm more of a dabbler with music stuff and it's not too complicated to do my dabbling with. People that really make music with full programs and expensive synths may feel limited, but a lot of good lo-fi can be made with his.

Great vocal sampler

This is identical to the PO-35 with some fun Rick & Morty samples pre-loaded onto the device. You can replace those samples with your own. You can also restore the default samples at any point by doing a hard reset (hold down pattern button and write button while replacing the batteries). Keep in mind this is a vocal sampler and not an audio sampler. It's best suited for capturing speech. Other types of audio samples will sound odd and distorted. If you want straight audio samples, you'd probably be more interested in the PO-33 or PO-133. The advantage of the PO-35 or PO-137 is that instead of just storing audio it stores speech parameters that will help you generate interesting new sounds. So if you're more interested in sound design than audio sampling, this is the pocket operator for you.

What are the licensing rules concerning songs ...

What are the licensing rules concerning songs made using this sampler? Can we use it for songs/videos without getting sued by Cartoon Network?
Asked by: Andre
It would be best to consult a copyright lawyer regarding the laws that apply to the material you will be sampling and how it will be used, especially if you will be selling the resulting songs you create using the sampled material.
