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 remeniscent 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.
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!
all six units feature:
- 16-step sequencer
- 16 patterns
- parameter locks
- built-in speaker
- 3.5mm audio I/O
- jam sync
- animated LCD display
- folding stand
- clock + alarm clock
- battery powered (2XAAA)
- 1 month battery life
- 2 year standby time
clever design, high quality.
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.
