prizes for the winner: trophy (signed by teenage engineering), PO-12, PO-14, PO-16 & 3 t-shirts.
during the pocket operator project competition, we have seen
some amazing submissions and are blown away by all the super nice
stuff you've made. you are the best!
we want to thank everyone deeply for participating.
here is the in-depth report on selected submissions we've received,
you will also find our thoughts on your project. let's go and get inspired!
case with tripod and handlebar mount.
multi-functional and suitable for studio, stage,
also shown here is the
cereal box sound system.
perfect for breakfast jam.
this flip case is made of paper fiberboard.
when you are on the go, the lid will protect the
pocket operator from cracking the screen or accidentally playing music. when you want to play flip the lid and fold it to the back as a stand.
fruity picnic loops with OP-1, pocket operators and the oplab.
love this setup!
arduino based tempo divider for the pocket operators. rhythm goes into arduino. sub gets half tempo. factory gets quarter tempo. all three play the same beat in the start, but hit at different points.
this 3D-printed case works for one PO and can also hold external devices.
detail of how the LEDs are soldered
onto the back of the pocket operator.
we absolutely love this aluminium case! we are amazed at the high finish level and simple construction. great attention to detail is put into
also really good job on applying our official template to the packaging. it almost looks like one of ours.
here's a video to show the process.
with it you will never be afraid of dropping your PO on the floor and breaking it...
a bone conductor cover to make your pocket operator operate anything!
it transforms every surface into a loudspeaker.
we love the idea of using everyday found objects to enhance and expand the possibilities of the pocket operators. well done!
this project demonstrates how you can control the potentiometers. a resistive pressure sensor is wired to potentiometer A. potentiometer B is replaced with a fixed resistor, and the wire stand is used to short the potentiometer.
when you press the PO, the wire stand
makes contact to the pads on top, which
are connected to two pads on the bottom
as well, and will switch the value read
from the potentiometer from 0%
the back of the pitch bender unit.
80s vibes with this
retro keytar controller.
nice soldering job.
we are not sure what this is but there are certain mysterious characters in this submission that make
is it something relating to borges' library of babel?
we would like to know more about it.
MPC inspired finger drumpad.
we'd love to see it in action.
adventure TP thermal printer for
pocket operators that can print out
the visuals behind the sound.
we are really curious to see how
this actually works.
we had such a hard time deciding the winner
since there are so many that we loved. but finally....
