I can’t read the article, but I thought this might be of interest.

“To date, the company has made nine different models of the same basic design, and it has sold more than 350,000 of them worldwide”

Wow, I guess that is 10x or more than the OP-1!

350.000…

And in this forum some speculated about a „serious cashflow problem“ a few months ago :joy:

The PO-33 KO is not $60. This is a glaring error. It’s $89…

Its an interesting article. I would concur that the Pocket Operators are disrupting the music tech industry, for better or worse. Selling 350,000 units is substantial. And the POs are so affordable that the barrier of entry into music producing gear is low enough that nearly anyone can buy into the industry. I think TE is like the Ikea of musical devices, they’re cheap and synonymous.
