Small enough to fit in your pocket and powered by a pair of AA batteries, the Teenage Engineering PO-12 Rhythm Drum Synthesiser features both real synthesised drum sounds and sampled drum sounds with 16 punch-in effects including delay, bit crusher, and filters.

The synthesiser parameters can be locked while an auto compressor and hardware limiter ensure adequate signal generation without clipping.

A 16-step sequencer features 16 available patterns and up to 16 patterns can be chained together. An integrated clock and alarm clock expands the creative possibilities of the instrument. A jam sync function with 3.5mm audio in and out connections allows for multiple synthesiser units to be linked together.

Using high quality components with low power consumption, the synthesiser is cleverly designed with a Silabs EFM 32 Gecko CPU, a Cirrus Logic DAC, and a Knowles speaker placed under a novel animated LCD on a single circuit board. A fold out stand makes it easier to play and rear panel speaker solder terminals allow you hook up the unit to a larger sound system.

An optional tailor made silicone pro case (sold separately) adds anti-sleep feet, battery protection, and professional feel buttons to this very unique music making device.

    For a cheap drum machine it's hard to beat this little unit. Great sounds (particularly the kick and snare) with a great deal of options including sequencing and effects. A few limitations but for the size and price that is to be expected.
