    The Teenage Engineering Pocket Operators offer an imaginative new way of creating electronic music on the go. Pocket operators are small, ultra portable synth devices, with studio quality sound and the flexibility to make music on the go.

    Each calculator shaped operator has it's own distinctive character and soundset,  featuring unique graphical animations that are reminiscent of classic 80's tech (Game & Watch anyone?). These animations look awesome but the real pride of the pocket operator is it's studio quality tones and engaging user interface, allowing you to create patterns and sounds that can be synched to other pocket operators and compatible with the rest of your studio gear.

    It may look like a simple toy, but each operator will be a bit of a pocket rocket to your creativity! What's more they're super fun to use and don't cost an arm and a leg; the perfect choice for a beginner.

    All pocket operator models perfectly complement each other. from drum machine, bass and lead synthesizers to noise percussion, the six unique units allow you to start a pocket band. use them separately or connect them together, the choice is yours.

    Clever design, high quality Build.

    pocket operators are designed on a single multiple-layer circuit board using high quality components. they all share a compact and durable form factor.

    By placing all vital and sensitive components under the LCD display there's no need for an outer case. by saving this cost, high quality components could be used to guarantee the best possible sound and very low power consumption. the space under the display also doubles as a speaker box.

    Once you've got the one, you may not be able to resist the temptation to slowly build up your collection until you've got them all!

    Mr. Garry Jones30th Dec 2021

    Very pricey for what you get. Teenage Engineering tax, I suppose. Functionality is fiddly. Doesn't detect transients and map to the available slots as well as it might. The instructions aren't very comprehensive. Online tutorials and guides helped much more. Trimming is hard to fine tune. Sounds great though.

    I am really enjoying this bit of kit. I'm a guitarist, but I'm bored in lockdown. No gigs and no rehearsals. This is so much fun, I'm only starting to scratch the surface. Recommend downloading the sounds from the Pocket Operator website - some sweet drum loops. Speaker is a bit rubbish, but it sounds sooooo good through a PA.

    Love the PO's - not everybody's cup of tea, and initially wasn't mine, but have come to like using them a lot. Seem complicated, but they are not. Great live too and give me something my set didn't have before.

    These gizmos are the biz! I'll need a week to learn it but the size vs capability is amazing

    Brilliant little device, let's you sample any audio source and chop it up into drum kit sounds or a melodic sound for beat making or looping.
