The innovative brand’s new instruments offer a user-friendly route into the world of modular synthesis.
The hotly anticipated release of Teenage Engineering’s modular synth range is finally upon us. In stock now, we have the POM-170 and POM-400 synths, plus the POM-16 keyboard/sequencer.
Priced at £348.66, the POM-170 is the entry-level option, building on the Pocket Operator ethos with a total of five modules combining to create a monophonic analogue synth.
The POM-400 is the bigger model, including a total of 15 modules including three oscillators, an LFO, two envelope generators, a filter, mixer, two VCAs and a seqeuncer. It’s a surprisingly powerful little self-contained modular rig.
The POM-16 keyboard and sequencer is effectively a standalone version of the keyboard and sequencer section from the POM-170, designed to complement the two POM synths or work with most other synths via standard MIDI or CV/gate signals.
In true Swedish style, all three instruments are packaged in flat-pack format, requiring a little DIY assembly.
The POM-170, POM-400 and POM-16 are available now. Scroll down to see more videos of the synths in action.
