Arrived today and not had much of a play but thought I’d post some images of it out of the box.
I came across Teenage Engineering via the Playdate and love their design so when I saw their Pocket Operator series I thought I’d give one a go. I wanted something small I could fiddle with and act as a change to using an iOS device. I was also after a new creative outlet so havingContinue reading “Teenage Engineering PO-33 KO”

Nothing fancy just into my Boss Katana MiniContinue reading “Using Ferrite to record guitar”
