That Teenage Engineering have a set own design they showed already often. Now again for the NAMM 2019! The Swedish company is now going modular and has presented a lineup of modular products.
The line features three different stylish chassis and 15 sound modules. Well it’s not a Eurorack system but at TE the user must assemble the system yourself.
The Pocket Operator Modular 170 is an analog monophonic Synthesizer with a built-in programmable sequencer. It comes with a complete kit with chassis in red, 9 modules and 8 patch cables.
The Pocket Operator Modular 400 is a top of the line analog Synthesizer with 3 oscillators, noise, random generator, 2 envelopes, 2 VCA’s, LFO, Filter, Mixer, Speaker Box, Power Pack and a 1-16 step sequencer. It’s a complete kit with chassis in yellow, 16 modules and 15 patch cables.
The Pocket Operator Modular 16 is a stand-alone keyboard with individual tuneable keys and programmable step sequencer. The unit is designed to control the 400 or other modular Synthesizers. It makes no sound bit itself, but sends CV, pitch and trigger signals.
