We knew something special was coming from Teenage Engineering at NAMM 2017, but even we didn't quite suspect such a curiously cool drum and percussion synthesizer in the form of the Pocket Operator range. One of the most interesting aspects of the new PO-32 Tonic is the included microphone and export feature.
We're meeting with Teenage Engineering in a day to see this diminuitive but powerful percussion pocket operator synth in action. Expect a video at AskAudio soon.
Here's the official details from the Teenage Engineering PO-32 tonic press release:
We are extremely happy to announce PO-32 tonic – the next level pocket operator with built-in microphone and import / export functionality. PO-32 tonic is a powerful drum- and percussion synthesizer a result of a fruitful collaboration with magnus lidström of sonic charge, creator of award-winning audio plugins and the man behind the CWO effect in OP-1.unique to PO-32 tonic is its wide range of sonic capabilities, a fresh selection of new punch-in fx, a built-in microphone allowing direct transfer of sounds and pattern data between units, as well as the ability to allow users of the standard desktop version of microtonic to shape sounds, generate new patches and pattern data, and transfer this wirelessly back to the PO-32 tonic. for the first time pocket operator users can easily import, export and share their music with the world, opening up for unlimited potential.
