- Best of the Bunch Review by Machariel
Out of the three new Pocket Operators, the Robot is probably most similar to the originals in terms of workflow. The Office is a bit of an odd ball, mostly due to the nature of the sounds. The Arcade on the other hand has more timbrality but always plays within a given chord structure. Fun to use alone, but harder to play with other instruments. Also the sounds are strictly Arcade in flavor. (Posted on 1/31/16)
- Love the Pocket Operators! Review by Al
Don't let the low price fool you into thinking these are toys – they're not. These are great sounding synths and drum machines that fit nicely into your pocket. I like to take mine with me when I travel, so I can work on musical ideas when I'm away from my studio.
Highly recommended! (Posted on 1/22/16)
