A True Knockout
m-train, 24.06.2020
This is the second po-33 I have purchased. I use it for quick sampling sounds out in the world and to create music on the go.

This device is one of the most fun I have ever used. It's lack of instructions can make it seem like it has a steep learning curve but once you understand the basic functions it is only a matter of time before you will become more skilled and learn all the tricks you need to create music.

The only downside to this device is that in order to make a backup of the samples and patterns you have created you need a way to record a stereo signal. You can easily record the audio output of the device using a mono interface if you just want to edit your music in a DAW or simple software like Audacity.

This remains one of my most heavily used and enjoyable instruments. I love the po-33 and cannot recommend it highly enough. A must have for anyone interested in sampling or mkaing music on the go.

I purchased some rechargeable AAA batteries to power my device so I would not have to use disposable batteries repeatedly.

Since I found out about the pocket operators series, the one that I always wanted was a sampler, teenage made it so I bought it.
First of all, if you're looking for a sp 404 or a mpc for a fraction of the price, just forget about it, you're going to blow 100 bucks(its monophonic, 40 seconds of sampling time etc...).
This is a great machine, you can record through the built in microphone and then you can cut, pitch and throw a low/high pass filter to the sample. After that you can sequence all the sounds and you can chain sequences together in order to create a song or simply make a 16,32 etc step sequence.
Good: The effects are incredibly fun to use. After creating a sequence you can create a performance by using them.
Bad: the samples are divided in racks and you can't play a 2 samples from the same rack at the same time. For example, if you have in a drum rack a quick drum and a high hat, you can't play both at the same time, the last one added to the sequence will delete the previous sound in that step.
And the sequencer is 4 notes polyphonic, so when 4 samples are playing at the same time, if you add a 5th sample to the sequence in that step, one of the samples will stop playing. That can be a good or a bad thing, sometimes can mess up completely the sequence but other time can help to to create a dynamic sequence through out the time, by adding some samples, others fade away.
Other thing that might be upsetting: You can add samples to the sequence by 16 step mode or live mode. Even though its possible to record live to the sequence, what you play is quantized, so if you try to do something weird keep in mind that the sequencer can mess it up because will quantize what you play, regardless if you want it or not.
Conclusion: Is incredibly fun machine, if you use the limitation in your advantage, you can create really cool things with it.

Overall best price/performance sampler.
Rudolphf, 16.09.2020
Mainly used it for some piece ideas on the go as a device to make drafts on. The device is really easy to use and has a great built in speaker with what you can sample anything anytime. The device also has a mic in port from which you can import sounds from your computer.
The only complaint is that you need to buy a separate case for it or it will break easily as it is quite fragile. The case is a must have if you want to buy this. Otherwise I have no complaints and its definitely money well spent.

Introduction to Teenage Engineering / Most Versatile PO
José1369, 17.06.2020
This is my first Pocket Operator and I have to say that I've spend some time having fun while playing with it !

The PO 33 is a perfect introduction to the world of drum machines and hardware sequencers.
Even though all these buttons and leds might seem a little disturbing at first for the newbie, the PO is quite easy to handle, plus there are tons of tutos on the internet.

The built in FX are nice (some of them amazing) and very nice thought to live jam with.
The built-in mic does its job when you create patterns with friends, just for fun. And actually this is why it's so cool: you can take it anywhere with you, record a few sample sounds and easily create a small chain pattern that sounds like a "mini track".
Also, the more POs the merrier, and it all becomes truly interesting when you link them together!

On the other side you have to buy separately the plastic case or be careful when transporting even though the built feels relatively sturdy.

2 of my non-musicians friends bought one after I showed them the tiny machine.
