Teenage Engineering KOII - Knockout

video upload by

"Samples on our

The new KOII from Teenage Engineering bucks the trend when it comes to price point - the original range of Pocket Operators were low cost this one takes the concept and adds some more of that Teenage design magic. And their OP-1 Field, TX-6 and TP-7 are priced way out of most people's league, this is what one would consider to be affordable.

The KOII is a 64mb sampler Composer and features 48 tracks of sequencing with up to 12 voices of polyphony. It looks like a 1990's calculator but its got a lot going on.

With four groups (ABCD) of 12 pads, each pad can play a sample as a single hit or via the keyboard for pitched lines. You can also use a pad or track to record and playback MIDI (note, velocity, pitch bend, aftertouch and CC)

Samples can be manipulated with some simple parameters, pitch, attack/release, rudimentary time stretch, amplitude and panning. You can also use stereo samples -though this will eat two voices and the limit is 20seconds in length.

There's a decent single global effect (Delay, Reverb, Chorus, Distortion and Compression) which you can send on a per group basis using the fader - this fader can also be used to record automation for various parameters - LPF, HPF, Decay, Pitch etc again per group.

Add to that you have insert FX which are global and effect everything - designed for real-time sound mangling and performance most are controlled in some way by pressure on the 12 pads - yes they have pressure too - this can also be mapped to a repeat function in the style of the MPC repeat.

Memory is organized into 9 Projects - each pad group has up to 99 patterns A01-99, B01-99 etc. And each pattern can be up to 99 bars long - and can record free or quantized. Then there are 99 scene memories - this stores the pattern assignment for each group.

In practice one would create a groove in Scene01 - say drums in grp A, bass in B other sounds in C or D

say these are all A01, B01, C01, D01. Then when you are happy commit the scene, and Scene01 is created (no pause in playback) Patterns are duplicated to 02 slot on each group and you could then add or subtract parts to create another variation or section.

Scenes are not chain able so you will need to perform any song structures you want to create, but its an elegant and friction less creative workflow - I really enjoyed it and I have a low tolerance for obscure operation.

The output section alsoe gives drive and compression giving a real glue ti the sound. The KOII sounds great by the way, plenty of weight and nice snappy transients.

I'll be honest, I really like this unit and feel that its a great creative tool. There are limitations - no song mode, some parameters would be nice to automate but are not accessible (delay time for instance) and the memory state is live - so whatever you do is written into memory, there's no revert aside from basic Undo.

The good news is that TE have released a beta version of the Web Memory tool which allows you to not only drop samples into the unit, but also to backup all the memory.

As a drum machine and very capable MIDI sequencer its hard to beat, its fun to use and aids creativity. Nice work Teenagers.

Price $299/Euros available now."

larping as a skin-walker (NORNS perception 0.6 DESCRIPTIVE JAM)

video upload by tworoundrobins

"perception is a script I'm currently working on and I thought I'd give a little presentation what it's all about, since I find the aspect of time perception in animals really interesting. the main idea came from a Ben Jordan's video on the subject and further reading about CFF and temporal resolution. if you'd like to give it a spin follow the gitHub link!

thank you so much for sticking around. enjoy!

mistake in video: should be Benn Jordan, not Ben. Apologies!"

Analog Rytm & PO MEGAMAN: "KeeJen" (TDK cover)

video upload by tubesockor

"Third time making a TDK cover now, but can't help it - they are too good and too fun to play! This is KeeJen, from the TDK album 'Retrospect'.

All sounds come from the Elektron Analog Rytm MKII using three voices of SY CHIP and one hihat voice. The leads are played on the Teenage Engineering PO-128 Megaman Pocket Operator.

Played in one go. Rytm audio is direct from the unit, PO has a little delay."

Teenage Engineering Featured in "What's New" Preview Tips in Mac Sonoma 14.5

Thought this was interesting. I updated my Mac to Sonoma 14.5 last night. This morning I flipped through the "What's New" tips and saw this. Some exposure for modular synths. Curious how Teenage Engineering managed that. I wasn't researching Teenage Engineering so I don't think Apple did some browser history magic there.

If you've updated to Sonoma 14.5, take a look and let us know if you see the same.

Arturia Microfreak Vocoder + Teenage Engineering K.O. II

video upload by Genshi Media Group


I Heart Vocoders! So I thought I'd try putting the @ArturiaOfficialMicrofreak's Vocoder thru the @teenageengineeringEP-133 K.O. II Sampler Composer. I sampled two parts of the Vocoder into the K.O. II beforehand, and then did the live Vocoding as you see in the video (though the live Vocoding was a bit too hot.) A super fun minimal setup!"

"FILL combo does re-triggering randomly at the end of phrases.

RAND combo creates a random sequence on the current sample.

FILL + RAND will activate generative drum beats that will regenerate every 32 beats.

zeptocore is synced via usb midi. all the drum sounds are from the zeptocore using samples from the amazing @starpowerdrums sample pack. all the synth sounds from the op-1."

Dual Octatrack Madness: Granular Sampling Is Wild

video upload by EZBOT

"What's better than one Octatrack? Two, of course. In today's live stream we use my battery powered Octatrack run the Octacosm project which will be processing the OP-1 Field. The Octacosm is an Octatrack Template that turns the Octatrack into a granular effects processor which is great for processing synthesizers. We will be sampling into the Digitakt and making some music from scratch.

Weird Jam on the Teenage Engineering EP-133 K.O. II

Teenage Engineering EP-133 K.O. II First Test // Sampling Session

video upload by Genshi Media Group

"I love this thing! It's so easy to sample things from around the house with the built-in microphone. The little improvised jam at the end is pretty sloppy as I didn't know where I was going with it, but hopefully this video shows how easy it is to put together something on-the-fly!

That said, the 'Teenage Engineering EP-133 K.O. II 64 MB Sampler Composer' is one of the worst names for an instrument ever..."
