A great studio addition

30.01.2016
This little guy came to me as a big surprise from TE when they teamed up with Cheap Monday; being known for their 600¤ synth and then coming up with this thing for 70¤. Nice unique sounds and effects, a really, REALLY good speaker (better than the Volca series), clear display, sturdy for a portable setup, good battery life (runs on regular AAA). It can even tell time.

Being only a barebone PCB with buttons+display on top, it doesn't even have the on/off button (it has auto-sleep though), but that doesn't stop it from delivering a serious punch. Editable parameters can be motion sequenced too, patterns can be chained and tempo and shuffle is also editable (up to 240BPM). Has an included stand (a fold-out metal piece).

I wish it has some of these things (but then it wouldnt cost so little):
-channel mute
-display light
-on/off (although I think the newer PO-2x series will have that)
-more pattern spaces
-maybe better saving (if you remove the batteries, sometimes it wipes your patterns)

But I think I'll buy a few more, these things have great charm and usability, I even made an EP solely done on a PO-12.

Awesome drum machine for the price

Abel96, 19.08.2018
I was expecting a toy but I am really surprised by the sounds this little thing can make. If you run it through some effects it sounds much more massive than it has any right to. Especially for the low price. I guess the only downside to this specific PO is the fact that it is much harder to make a full song with it than some other POs. It can only make drum sounds pretty much (there is a bass and synth sound but it is quite limited). But at least the one thing it does it does really well. At this price a no brainer!
