This Pocket Drum Machine Is Perfect For On-The-Go Producers

A calculator-sized drum machine.

Teenage Engineering has been creating tiny versions of music producing equipment for a while now as part of their Pocket Operator line, but their latest product offers more flexibility for producers than ever before. The PO-32 Tonic drum machine gets upgrades that allow users to import and export sounds via a standard 3.5mm headphone input or microphone.
Pocket Operator has a wide range of miniature, calculator-sized drum machines available that all come with slightly different sounds, but with the new accompanying Microtonic VST plug-in, producers can make new drum and synth samples they can load into their pocket-sized drum machine.
The drum machine features a small, quirky screen, and it has 16 buttons to assign sounds and patterns to, two knobs for adjusting pitch and modulation and 64 patern chaining. It runs on two AAA batteries.
Teenage Engineering offers a wide range of pocket drum machines, and the PO-32 is the most expensive at $90. The Microtonic VST is an additional $99 but if you pre-order them together the cost is only $140. Otherwise, you’ll have to wait until the first week of April to get your hands on the PO-32.
