You might remember a while back, I told you about the PO-14 SUB, the Pocket Synth from Teenage Engineering. It’s such a joy to play with, and I’ve used it a lot lately. But now, you can have it! I’m selling it on Letgo! Watch the video below (It’s in Norwegian, sorry.), and pick up the synth HERE. (Only for Norwegians, sorry.). If you want to get shopping in your own area, you can download the app HERE.
Come nerd with me again. This time I want to talk about the Pocket Operator from Teenage Engineering, which I find hugely entertaining. I have the Po-14 Sub, and I’m constantly playing with it. It’s a lot of fun on it’s own, but also so good for those times where you’re kind of stuck on something and need to get your head out of what you’re doing and a new creative vibe. This one has real synthesizer engines, as well as a sequencer with a deep bass-line sound. The Pocket Operators is a collection of in total 7 mini-synthesizer, they come with a 1 month battery time and two year stand by time. They also all have an animated LCD display. Mine is 49 $ at the Teenage Engineering web store, and I will probably invest in a couple more soon, as they’re so much fun.
Let me introduce you to another one of my love affairs while making this album. The OB-6. This is an all-rounder for me, and my go-to synth for anything complicated or basic. It can do almost everything you need. It’s especially great for pads and creating that richness in a track. It really fills the entire frequency specter, and with it being so versatile, it’s a dream to work with. It really gets your inspiration going.
While working with my album I’ve visited some amazing studios and been allowed to work on some fantastic synths. So, get ready to nerd with me.
I had a few days with this baby, the Mini Moog Voyager, at Earport Studios. I was beyond ecstatic to work with it, but I have to admit I spent a few hours just playing around with it before doing anything actually useful. I love this synth for creating bass sounds and leads, and the signature warmth of the Moog synths are incredibly evident on this one. You can’t deny the beauty of this instrument either, if I had one I’d most likely have it on display on the mantelpiece.
