Teenage Engineering's Tiny Drummachine Gets An Outing

PO-12 From a tent in Sweden      30/07/14

We saw a little information on Teenage Engineering's new baby a few months back. Its an interesting 16 sound, 16 effect machine with a parameter lock step sequencer built on a very compact circuit board. What we see here is still unfinished - there will be a case, small display and a few other refinements, but eseentially this is it.

Whats most amazing is the target price - TE are hoping to bring it in for around $50! Considering their usual premium priced hardware - check the OP-1, its quite a change of direction, and if they pull it off, could sell by the boatload.

In this demo filmed at a festival in Norberg, Sweden, captured by musical jamming ace - Cuckoo - you may know him for his brilliant work with Elektron gear, we can hear what it's capable of already.

It looked like it was synced to the OP1, but it was hard to tell. It looks like it has a lot of potential.

These are going to sell like pot noodles if they get it right. I can see this out-doing the Korg volca stuff

I think Bill said it right "very cute". For $50.00 its a fun toy but just like the Volca stuff this will get very boring sounding very fast and wind-up on eBay. Its just not for me.
