This is important as if you want something super basic this is not for you; if you want something with every bell and whistle out there, this is not for you eitther.
Right, here we go:
I have played on iPhone apps that allow you to sequence drum machines. They are fun but they all seem a little too basic and far off what a professional may use. They also do not 'feel' like a good stepping stone into music production. So I wondered what to go for. I checked out software first. There seemed to be lots out there ranging in price and complexity. I was reluctant to go out and buy some software that would just put me off for life. You know what I mean: you go and buy photoshop pro, try to draw a circle and find you have to spend four hours on Google to learn how to do it! I did not want the photoshop pro version of music sequencing; I did not want to have to boot up the computer sit at a table with a mouse (and possibly a keyboard) to get going. I wanted something the size of an iPhone that I could just grab and make music.
Then along came this bad boy: the pocket operator. Before you read on check out YouTube to see what people have done with it. When you link it up with another (or even more) you can get some real professional music laid.
How easy it is: I am gonna be honest. It was not intuitive for me. You can't just open it and get stuck in. I struggled to even play around to work out what things did. This may not be the case if you have experience of this sort of thing; the symbols (pun intended) may mean something to you. I was a little frustrated but remembered why I bought it. I wanted something a little more professional that a simple iPhone app. And that was gonna require a little learning.
So I put the work in. If you have peace you can become proficient with its use in about an hour. You may need to refer back to the instructions to remind you how to do some if it but it is actually relatively simple. I would advice learning one function then spending a few minutes playing with it then moving on.
The hard part is actually making a good track. But then if that was easy we would all be pop stars!
The internal speaker is not brilliant but it is much better than I was expecting so don't let that put you off; with earphones its perfect. It takes two AA batteries and is constantly on. There is no off button but this does not matter. To my understanding most of the screen is just for show but some of it does help. All the LEDs near each button all mean different things depending on what you are doing. I found it a little confusing at first but quickly got the hang of it.
So, if you are looking to put your foot in the water - get this; it is wicked. I was picking my wife up from somewhere the other day. I arrived early so killed 15 minutes in the car with the Operator, wrote a little track and smiled. Boom!
I read that the Rhythm was was the best to get if you were just getting one. It is not just a drum machine; you can get melody on your tracks to.
I also recommend making your own manual, for the things you need to do but forget. I got the case for this as i wanted to protect it but its really sturdy, i maybe didnt need to being honest.
Buy one, make music, share it with the world.
PO-Tonic is great. If you buy this, I highly recommend buying both as the PO unit can communicate with Microtonic directly for making new sounds for the PO. If you just buy the PO-Tonic (without Microtonic), you're not really getting the best out of the machine as you can't change the soundbank yourself (unless you go to youtube which can send new sounds via the built-in microphone).
I know the PO-Tonic with Microtonic is quite expensive compared to the other units - but it's definitely worth it if you want a solid and capable battery operated drum synth which you can carry in your pocket.
If, however, you're not intending to ever buy Microtonic, I recommend you to buy the PO-Speak instead of the PO-Tonic because the PO Speak also contains the default sound banks from the PO-Tonic.
If you do decide to buy Microtonic for the PO-Tonic, go to the Patternarium website which has hundreds of thousands of sound presets and drum patterns for free which you can edit and send directly to you Tonic. The free/Cracked versions of Microtonic do not support transferring sounds to the PO-Tonic - you;ll have to buy it but if you contact the SonicCharge website, they will give you a massive discount for Microtonic if you prove you bought a PO-Tonic (eg: send a photo of it or a screenshot of your order).
The best thing about the PO-Tonic (with Microtonic) unit is that it can also be used as a synth instrument (you can make any sound in microtonic, not just drums).
The other amazing feature is the "morph" feature which morphs 2 sounds for every slot on the PO. This means that you can create thousands of unique sounds on the PO if you use microtonic, simply by using the patternarium presets and appying a morph to them.
One last thing is the effects, very decent and usable effects which cleverly inject a lot of raw excitement into the sounds - they can be manually triggered and sound great - even just by mashing the buttons randomly - great for live sessions.
For the perfect Pocket Operator rig set-up, I would recommend:
PO-Tonic (with Microtonic) as a Drum/Synth machine
PO-K.O. as a sampler
PO-Speak as a vocoder/bass synth
Link the 3 together and you've got an amazingly versatile rig. I'd go so far as to prefer my Pocket operators to my Analogue Korg Electribe.
It's so much fun! Seriously it is very fun to just muck about with this and try out new sounds, record samples and re-mix them.
Very small and very portable. Easily slips into a pocket or a bag and so light you'll never notice it.
Great for getting into sampling and re-mixing. It's probably the cheapest ways to get into this out there.
Has some great options and you can create some really great sounds and tunes from it using even simple filtering, pitch adjust and trims. Good thing is it never erases the original recording, so if you want to go back and change the way you've tweaked the sound you can.
It does have a bit of a learning curve. There are no instructions, and even the online guide is limited in that it only explains basic functions and doesn't go into detain on how they combine. I can recommend watching some how to videos on this to learn the complexities.
It has a 40 second sample memory, but that's split across all the 16 samples, so you may find it a bit restrictive. The built-in ones don't count to this 40 second limit and you can overwrite them with your own.
The built in speaker is very quiet. You can connect headphones that helps, but in all the videos I've seen of it they are definitely amplifying the audio.
Overall I have really enjoyed playing with this and I am seriously considering getting one of the other rhythm based units to connect to it.
The instructions are good for getting you started, but I found some good tutorial videos on youtube that really helped me get going with this.
Sound quality is really good (obvs depended on what speakers/earphones you're using). Recording the output on PC should be really straightforward if you've got a line-in - if you don't have, you'll need to think about buying a cheap USB sound card with a line in to be able to record your music.
Really tempted to save up for one of the other pocket operator devices now.
