Teenage En­gi­neer­ing PO-32 Tonic

Computer Music - - News -

The quirky Pocket Op­er­a­tor range from Teenage En­gi­neer­ing has a new ad­di­tion: PO-32 Tonic, a pocket beat­box not just based on but also com­pat­i­ble with Sonic Charge’s ace Mi­cro­tonic VST/AU drum synth.

PO-32 fea­tures 16 sounds, 16 punch-in ef­fects, and a se­quencer that can chain up to 64 16-step pat­terns. As we wit­nessed first­hand at NAMM, sounds de­signed in Sonic Charge Mi­cro­tonic can be trans­mit­ted as data through your com­puter’s speak­ers as a burst of noise, and re­ceived by the PO-32’s mi­cro­phone, es­sen­tially “fax­ing” the patch to the de­vice acous­ti­cally. Very cool. PO-32 costs £85 on its own, or you can fork out £135 to pur­chase both the diminu­tive hard­ware synth and the Mi­cro­tonic plugin.
