■Drum synthesizer and sequencer with para-meter locks, punch-in effects and unlimited sounds with microtonic vst (sold separately) through data transfer. Very 80 handheld animation is very fun and unique.
■The PO-32 Tonic is the seventh addition to Teenage Engineering’s range of compact, battery-powered Pocket Operator handheld grooveboxes.
■PO offers 16 sounds, 16 performance effects and a 16-step sequencer into an cool 80 bare hardware unit highly portable. However, where previous POs have been limited to a pre-defined range of sounds, this one is capable of a wider sound palette via sound creation on applications
■PO-32 has been created in collaboration with Swedish developer Sonic Charge's MicroTonic - a software drum synthesizer -PO 32 can be loaded with fresh sounds and patterns created using the plug-in, allowing users to completely alter and overwrite its sonic palette and create new sound. Sound can be loaded with old school audio-data signals by line in or internal mic.
■ each sound can be manipulated by 2 parameter knobs (pitch and special morphing, which make a transition between 2 sounds parameters). The PO’s Parameter Lock capability allows the movement of these two knobs to be automated on a per-step basis too.
■ Like other PO family there are some effects for real time performances including: rhythmic filtering, delayed fade outs, lo-fi and distortion effects, stutter, glitch beat repeats and more.
