Best Uses

    Comments about Teenage Engineering Po 12 Rhythm Pocket Operator:

    I usually play this in the subway and I really love it.
    this machine is enough to get inspiration! you can get ideas anywhere, anytime.

    In fact, if you compare it to another great synth,
    this machine does not really have a great possibility.

    But do you know? This is 'portable' and 'inexpensive'. It is not as expensive as "moog" .

    In other words,
    "It's not a musical instrument designed for performances or recordings!"

    Nevertheless, it does have very good features appropriately.
    I think teenage-engineering seems to know what the demands of customers wanting this kind of product!

    16bit-step-sequencer, built-in speaker, pattern management ....
    everything is enough! I think some features are better than korg volca.

    Anyway, the best feature is that all the actions are recorded!
    Insert effect, hihat pitch change, decay of kick ...
    In other words, if you change something, they will all be recorded.

    well, If you are always looking for something to excite you,
    This is a good choice. just buy it !
