If you are new to the Pocket Operator concept then you’ve missed a fair bit. They are, essentially, mini hardware music makers that specialise in different areas of music production. They feature a sequencer and most are very capable of creating and evolving interesting beats, basslines or even complete tunes. They look like unfinished calculators, which is all part of their rather odd appeal.

The original PO series was announced over three years ago at NAMM and quickly became a MusicTech favourite. The PO-12 rhythm specialises in beats, the PO-14 sub focusses on bass and the PO-16 factory does synth sounds. I loved them.

About MusicTech

Though it was only a few issues ago that we contemplated the future of music, we came to the realisation that the future is now! With more effects at our disposal than ever before, we tour the modern arsenal of plug-in effects, tools and software that you might not even realise existed! Elsewhere, we speak to the legendary DJ Jazzy Jeff about his production and DJing ethos, and join Detroit-based artist Klayton, whose love of 80s electronic and metal bands has borne many fruitful projects, not to mention an amazing studio. We put Hans Zimmer Strings to the test, as well as a slew of new pieces of gear and software in our expanded reviews section. Additionally, there’s 4 new tutorials for Live, Logic, Cubase and Pro Tools, brand-new tips, retrospectives and our Essential Guide series draws to a close with a 101 to recording. We hope you enjoy the issue!
