NAMM 2019 | Teenage Engineering - "Pocket Operator goes modular!"
Teenage Engineering launches three affordable Modular DIY synthesizers for 2019. With 3 pre-configured chassis and loads of new modules, it's "never been easier to get started with modular music making."
Teenage Engineering has expanded its popular and affordable Pocket Operator family with three brand-new devices for 2019. The three new kits offer a fun and affordable way of getting into modular synthesis, with just a little bit of assembly required!
With 3 pre-configured chassis and loads of new modules, the Pocket Operator 400, 170 and 16 allow you to "explore the pure fun of modular synthesis in a hassle free way," says Teenage Engineering.
The new devices promise an affordable entry-point into modular synthesis and are ideal for new-comers to this expansive world. Each synth is battery powered and includes everything you need to build your own setup in under 15 minutes. Teenage Engineering has designed the devices to be as simple to build as possible, with a pre-fabricated chassis and snap-in wire connectors - "just bend, assemble and patch!"
While each device may be highly affordable, Teenage Engineering hasn't skimped on sound. "The pocket operator is all about compromising on everything that adds cost - everything except sound quality." 15 available modules cover oscillators, envelopes and filters, while the universal battery pack and speaker box lets you get making music with no additional equipment.
Each device comes packed in antistatic protection and is delivered in a super-cool cardboard box with clear, full-colour instructions. What's more, each module uses full-size 3.5mm jacks for patching and is compatible with other pro gear at /- 12V, even fitting in a Eurorack setup! * Eurorack bus power conversion kits to be released later this year.
The Teenage Engineering Modular 16 is a DIY keyboard with 16 keys. Each key has individual tuning for the most precise sounds. 16 features a built-in programmable sequencer and is powered by 4x AA batteries. The Modular 16 is not designed to make music by itself, and needs another device to produce sound.
