PO videos

Thought it would be a good idea to throw yours or anyone else’s Pocket Operator videos in the one thread! http://youtu.be/8kOqYcJtYUI



Good idea!


Adding my PO videos so far:

  • Here’s my latest one - a live version of Rob Hubbard’s “Commando High Score” for the Commodore 64:

How do you get around covering tracks with black keys?

It takes careful planning :) I have empty patterns running on the PO-16, with only the "raise halfstep" FX applied on certain steps. So it is kind of a challenge when the buttons' note jumps around :)

So, if I program in a sequence on my factory which has sharp/flat notes, just throw it in as the next white key down and apply the half step raise to the step?

Are you serious with that Delta track? It is too good. Amazing skills man. Well done.

Yup, pretty much so. But since you can’t just “apply” it you have to record the FX in realtime.

Thank you! No, not on soundcloud - didn’t think of that actually. Maybe I should? :slight_smile:

Really neat @pselodux, love the Game Boy impro!

Sound/video quality is top notch IMHO, would you mind sharing your recording setup?
