Teenage Engeering PO-33 Sampler


#121

Thanks! :slightly_smiling_face:


#122

Whoa! Thanks for reminding me of that album!


#123

I couldn’t wait. I found an awesome shop in London that has the the new POs in stock. I ordered a PO33 and PO35 online and I’m picking them up Monday morning. Woo hoo!

These will be a fun souvenir and will keep me company in the hotel during my business trip (13 nights!) and the long flight back.


#124

Utterly obsessed with this thing!


#125

Same here, it is just about everything needed to knock up a jam and nothing else, and that’s brilliant :slight_smile:

Loving your jams!


#126

At first I preferred speak to ko, but now after spending time with both I like them about the same, both awesome in different ways.


#127

My mind is already background thinking of the possibilities of 2xko+2xspeak with the KVGear mixer…

:disappointed_relieved:


#128

Thanks, loving your jams too! It’s just crazy what they were able to squeeze into this thing. I adore the workflow! I spent the whole weekend surrounded by all this gear and touched nothing but the k.o!


#129

Can you load new tonic sounds into both of them or just the speak?


#130

You could sample the Tonic sounds into the KO, but the KO doesn’t have the Tonic engine


#131

Yeah only speak has tonic engine, sampling into ko would give them a definite lo-fi charm though :slight_smile:

I don’t have tonic so not a big deal for me, and besides the drum sampler of ko is fun if a little fiddly - the perfect breeding ground for experimentation or happy accidents.


#132

Thanks, I already have microtonic so will probably get the speak in this case.

Another question, why bother getting a PO-32 if the PO-35 has both tonic import and speech synthesis?


#133

PO-35 only has a 1 channel version of tonic. Monophonic if you will. Vs 4 channel on the Tonic unit


#134

Okay thanks, what does 1-channel of sounds give you? Can you still play with a whole kit of tonic sounds?


#135

Yessir. 16 sounds with morph control. But only one sound per step.


#136

So you can only play one sound on one step (like one digitakt track)? so couldn’t play a kick and snare at same time? Is that not a bit limiting?


#137

Correct. It is definitely limiting.

EDIT: I happen to find PO-35 better for adding stuff to other tracks rather than creating standalone pieces. The whole unit has 2 voice polyphony, 1 for the voice channel, 1 for the tonic channel.


#138

Hmm, that’s put me off a bit. I was hoping to buy just one of these, maybe the sampler is the better option. Is there some kind of comparison chart for the POs?


#139

If you only had one PO (and already owned microtonic) which one would you go for?


#140

K.O. definitely. That said, I love samplers and sampling. But, it can be anything you want it to be. It’s 4 voice, but you can use those voices across all of the sounds. The FX are great, it’s got a separate hp/lp filter with resonance and the tweaking of it can be recorded. It’s really really deep for what it is.
