The Pocket Operators offer a range of features that you wouldn't believe was possible at this price. The unique collaboration of art, design and technology from the Swedish innovators at Teenage Engineering. With a real synth engine, speaker and animated graphics the PO-12 Rhythm has immense personality and thanks to sync, FX and parameter locks it certainly isn't out of place in a larger studio. Create entire tunes with a pocket production tool or use it in your existing setup for instant inspiration.

This is just one of a trio of Pocket Operators. PO-12 Rhythm is dedicated to crunchy sampled drums and classic synth drum sounds, all triggered by a creative sequencer that features parameter locks and punch in effects.

Combine the PO-12 with other Pocket Operators for a fully synced synth setup:

PO-14 - Squeezes FM, subtractive, wavetable and physical modelling synthesis all on one little board that will fit in your pocket. Program wobbling great bass lines on the train, then expand your idea at home with pattern chaining for full songs and sync to bring in your other gear.

PO-16 - The most melodious member of the Pocket Operator family, delivering chords and arpggios using 4 different synth engines. Immense potential and plays nicely as the central hub of a complete PO trio.

Need A Case? Check out the Pro Case selection for Pocket Operators, CA12, CA14 and CA16. They're available to order and offer improved protection and a more tactile feel on the buttons.
