Cheap Monday and Teenage Engineering began their collaborative force in 2013, this year they're back with an even better creation.
The Pocket Operator is born out of a unique collaboration between the two brands, marrying each of their philosophies into one. Cheap Monday and Teenage Engineering’s new line of musical instruments is called Pocket Operators and consists of three pocket sized synthesisers. All three models come without casing where the components and artwork are visible directly on the printed circuit board.
The 2xAAA battery powered Pocket Operators also come with a segment LCD screen, built in speaker, alarm clock and a stand made from bent wire. All models also feature parameter locks as well as synchronisation functionality and they all have 3.5mm line in and line out. Each model has its own set of effects such as filters, bit-crushing, delay, stutter and many more.
PO-12 / RHYTHM
The RHYTHM is a drum machine with a 16 step sequencer with 16 different sounds which are a mix between synthesis and samples.
PO-14 / SUB
The SUB is a bass line driven synthesiser. It’s got a 16 step sequencer with 16 sounds and 16 effects / playing styles.
PO-16 / FACTORY
The FACTORY is a melody / lead-synth oriented machine with a 16 step sequencer, 16 sounds and 16 effects / playing styles.
With the Pocket Operators, retailing at only £49 each, Cheap Monday and Teenage Engineering are introducing one of the smallest, smoothest and best priced synthesisers ever and all whilst still delivering premium sound, features and effects.
The Pocket Operators will launch in the UK at the Cheap Monday Store, Carnaby Street on 5th June, where you can join the team in workshops on how to use The Pocket Operators, as well as online at www.cheapmonday.com and selected retailers worldwide.
