Pocket operator field?

a pocket operator for midi sequencing + arpeggiation would be sweet. maybe a po12 on pad 16 /or 8 engines per upper n lower pads /or whatever

basically an rk008 from retrokits in pocket operator format

metal po-x case, right?



a pocket operator field with like 4 or 5 pocket operator engines, trs midi, backlit screen and a metal case with solid pots/knobs would be dope af … ive heard people discount the possibility of a pocket operator in the field range for reasons, but po’s are really as much of a flagship synth as the op-1 or op-z. maybe they’ll do op-zf first? then po-f??

maybe an entire field range is a hoax, and they’ll only revamp these two n that’s it …

my only problem with this is… well the op-z. it’s already a better PO. i don’t see why they would do a field PO instead of a field op-z :man_shrugging:

i’m not sure where this type of thing comes from. the field system is a real thing, and there will be more in the line. they’ve said as much on several occasions.


in all honesty
i would rather see them put out new stuff
rather than rehashing field versions of things that already exist

not saying a field Z or PO wouldn’t be cool or anything
(like @mat said, isn’t the Z kinda like a souped up PO already?)


its a format thing

full metal po format 12/24/32 drum thing would be a no brainer me, lot less fuss than any opzf and lol hopefully half the price

me too!

but i looks like theyre making field shit and tote bags now so po-f me

the new shit could be part of the field series

The opz is absolutely not a posh PO. the sequencer is good but the sounds are really boring.


I just cannot understand how anyone could say the sounds from the OP-Z are boring. They’re so versatile but again the effects are a bit lacking. I guess that’s just your opinion hahahaha. No abrasiveness here, that just blows my mind to hear.

The synths just don’t have much to them. Very clean simple bloops. And the sample time is tiny. I really love the sound of the po series, frequently peculiar and nasty. And the fx on POs are amazing.

looks like it’s 1 to 1 new shit to revamped old shit so far

po-12, 32, and 35 are sold out…wonder if they’d put a vocoder engine in with instances of a po12 + 32 drum-kits >:) who needs a backlit grid based metal p-lock sequencer anyway, even if it’s just effects

edit: backlit

saw a documentary about the Fairlight Synthesizer and even clunky as it was and with half a second sampling time it was a huge success ayak

connect the op-z to your phone and sample all you need and 6/12 whole seconds are a lot to sample to.

again it’s so tiny and so powerful I would only accept a field kit which slips over the Z to control it with mechanical buttons and a way to motorize the knobs

a field case?!

edit: pocket operator field case :sunglasses: no longer sili could lend po some opz capabilities
edit2: hire hanztech



plot-twist it’s $2k …

:sweat_smile: it will be tho, but it’s aesthetic will be on point lol

the longer i wait, the more features creep in … oscilloscope!

i played a club in berlin again last night [cox!] and blew out their speaker system … no one was pissed, they said it was worth it … ppl danced around then i got paid. later they asked what happened, and i couldve answered better had i known the waveforms i was pushing … maybe

an oscilloscope on the ext. mic, or the line in. could help w sampling too tho its not my workflow.

rehearsal from the night before [computer as glorified usb battery]


Crazy setup for a club :open_mouth:

Did you record your set? Would love to hear it!

What’s the story with the pink sellotape?
