Teenage Engineering Pocket Operator Modular 400 // In depth demo + synth tips

Published on Mar 8, 2019 DivKidVideo

"**TIMING INDEX / SECTIONS BELOW - SKIP AROUND!!** So here we have an in depth - deep dive - mega tutorial - ultra look ... or whatever other silly name for a demo of the Teenage Engineering Pocket Operator Modular 400. I'll take you through each module giving some tips and ideas of how to use them (AM synthesis on the VCA is great, linear FM on the sine is great for example) and in-between each section break the video up with patches and examples both playfully dotted around the house playing out of the speaker and with direct recording explaining how to make certain patches.

Check out my video building the PO 400 here
