Teenage Engineering have a knack for releasing the weirdest gear on the market and still being able to outdo themselves every time. For their latest mind-bending adventure, it’s only natural that they teamed up with Rick and Morty producer Justin Roiland to create a Pocket Operator like no other: introducing the PO-137.
- 15 built-in Rick and Morty samples voiced by Justin Roiland (and his dog)
- A built-in drum machine for matching your favourite samples with custom grooves
- Built-in microphone to add your own samples
- 120 seconds of sample memory
- Gnarly Rick and Morty custom animated visuals on screen
- Add effects to each sample/step like tuning, filter, distortion and more
- Trigger, slow and reverse samples at will
- Built-in speaker for making noise on the go
- Built-in alarm clock
- Runs on 2 x AAA batteries
Built-in Rick and Morty samples and patterns
As with all Pocket Operators, Teenage Engineering have preloaded the PO-137 with a selection of samples to get you going. In this case, however, the samples come straight from Rick and Morty producer and vocal talent, Justin Roiland (and his dog).
Yep – that means Wubba Lubba Dub Dub, Mr. Meeseeks, Show Me What You Got – all the family favourites. Go a step further and tweak the pitch, effect and length of each pattern per step to create eye-popping beats and ideas. And awaaaaay we go…
Prepare to get Schwifty
A built-in drum machine (sound 16) lets you pair up your favourite weird and wonderful Rick and Morty samples with pre-loaded beats – or you can create your own using the ‘write’ button, with each idea saving as you go.
The PO-137 is a drum machine / sampler – it’s only fair, therefore, that it comes with a built-in microphone. Hold the ‘record’ button and record your own voice or sound source – then go nuts with the built-in effects mentioned above. In the words of Rick himself: you have to have a pretty high IQ to be able to operate this little…piece of…gold?
