pocketoperator

Teenage Engineering have also shared with us their video tutorials on the PO (Pocket Operator) line. The basic stuff to know (having been playing around with today rather than doing NAMM work):

This being Nintendo-inspired, yes, there’s a metronome and alarm clock function.
Select one of sixteen patterns, and one of sixteen sounds, with the respective buttons.
Toggle between playing notes with the buttons, or inputing them with the step sequencer, using the “write” button.
Hold “write,” and you can write parameters over top of playing sequences (effects work this way, too). That means you can automate patterns, etc.
“bpm” – several of you asked about this. You can toggle between bpm presets, or dial in specific bpm and swing independently.

For more detail, watch the videos. These really are deceptively powerful, if they require some practice to learn to use. But as a little tiny thing to keep in your studio to generate ideas, well… yep, pretty irresistible.

(These hadn’t been listed yet – I begged for them partly because there were some features that confused me!)

One by one:

And here’s an explanation of how “sync jamming” works:

You’ll find right away that each of these units has multiple personalities inside. So, while you’ll be tempted to get all three, even just one is capable of making a track. There are some synth voices on the rhythm, for instance. There’s a nice percussion kit on the sub.

And yes, I couldn’t resist making some tracks with the rhythm to start things out. Technoooooocrastination! (I’m supposed to be reading through press releases or something…)

Have fun. No edits (apart from one mistake on the first track which required a cut when I bumped “play” – yeah, watch out for that). I added some light plate reverb, which I think is totally fair. And you hear that these really are things you could use in a production.

Some of the “rhythm” sounds are certainly weird – no normal clap, for instance, and a lot of really glitchy digital stuff, though that’s a selling point for some. I will say, some of it sounds fantastic. I think there’s a wider palette of sounds than on the volca beats (twice the price, though that’s still a great buy), and the sound of the unit puts the Akai Rhythm Wolf to shame (at three times the price). Now, sure, those things give you luxuries like MIDI or, I don’t know, a case other than a bare board. But… well, listen.

You know, if a restaurant is good enough, at the right price, you will skip luxuries like walls, a roof, tables, chairs, and … plates. Just stuff it in my mouth, really. And to think, I thought products needed enclosures.

Now, some criticisms, perhaps:

1. Yeah, they’re fragile. I want to try the silicon cases, for sure.
2. Augh, no mute. This one is painful on the rhythm – you can’t easily mute parts, which is part of why my jams get a bit rambly.
3. “fx” is fun on the rhythm, but confusing as hell.
4. You probably won’t spend almost any time looking at the cute animations, to be fair.
5. There’s some mystery here… octopus? Uh, letter? Function? Yes, you’ll get most of what you need to know from the videos, but I expect we’ll have some people posting their own tutorials to make up for the absent documentation.

But… you did work out that there’s a game you can play, too, right?

Oh, Teenage Engineering, we love you.

    Cant wait to get these – put em thru my Filterbank 2 and write a tune called ‘Im the calculator with my …… …….. ‘

    Looking forward to these so much!

    My fianceé just bought herself a Volca Sample. I’m thinking these little POs will make a great gift to fill out her collection of tiny noise makers for her tiny fingers.

    • Absolutely! Yeah, the volca sample should go well with this – mine finally arrived.

      And, of course, there’s also our MeeBlip … 😉

      What I love about each of these units is that they have a reall unmistakable character. It’s funny, software doesn’t *have* to be so perfectly polished and generic, but a lot of it doesn’t have this sort of edgy quality, this sense that you’ll know from across the room what it sounds like.

    In the part where they explain syncing, I think I heard that it is possible to sync these to other gear. Am I wrong? If I am not wrong, then these could play nicely with the Volcas and other analog gear.

    • That’s correct; it’s explained in more detail in the other story — and we need to some hands-ons here. But the basic idea is, it’s just a tick … so the Korg stuff works, for instance, or anything that can generate (or playback) such a signal.

    FM synthesis? Some of those sounds are very DX-out-of-control-ish, and FM doesn’t need much CPU at all.

    • disqus_kRU53IjGpT

      yeah a few of those sub sounds def sound fm, with some feedback between the oscillators

    • YeahRight

      Same for the “physical synthesis” sounds. Computational complexity for a string sound is much lower with physical synthesis than with other methods. The advertising basically re-defines the reality of the limitations of the product.

      The Factory sounds shrill as hell. Fun to jam with but I would be working the EQ like crazy to fit it into a mix.

    From a presentational standpoint, Teenage Engineering’s products are amazing. The line of Pocket Operators are absolutely beautiful; in particular, the high level of attention that was applied to the packaging design. However, I will also say that after playing with the PO-14 just once, I know I will never pick it up again. I understand that at a $60 price point, you’re purchasing a musical gadget, a toy basically. If that’s the case, it should be fun and easy to use. However, TE implements traditional user interface architecture in an attempt to justify their products to the more savvy electronic musician.

    If the playful design is meant to appeal to novice users and gives them a chance to explore the potential of electronic music production, then the user interface and architecture should work seamlessly with this in mind. A device that is easy to use for a newbie, will surely be even easier for someone more adept with programming hardware (and maybe even fun).

    TE attempts to bridge the gap between real musical production tools, aesthetically-pleasing industrial design, and top-notch packaging with playful and fun experiences. However, just like the OP-1, the PO is simply unsatisfying to use. And now, I have one more TE product that will sit on the shelf, looking pretty for now, but ultimately collecting dust.

    Teenage Engineering falls short in that they try to do so much that they don’t almost do anything at all. Impressing us with design aesthetics may influence a purchase, but surely the veneer will wear off once customers realize that there’s nothing fun about playing with a Pocket Operator, even at $60.

    Hi guys. As a newbie to all of this, I’m confused about Teenage Engineering’s products.
    They seem kind of cool in one way (from a design perspective), but absolutely pointless
    in another. I like the aesthetics, but fear that the joke is on us. $60 for great packaging?

    • Ashley Webb

      It depends what you’re trying to acheive. Personally for me the Rhythm will be used alonside my volca beats for extra percussion. I susect it’ll also get used for creating interesting stuff to sample. They also look like a lot of fun.
