Teenage Engineering has unveiled their latest products in the form of a new affordable entry level modular synthesis. The new systems take the form of the 16, 170, and 400 and have been created to provide a “poor man’s modular.” Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about the new products and what you can expect from the kits.
The Teenage Engineering 16 is a musical keyboard with sequencer and individual tuning option and is priced at $149. It’s a controller, so it doesn’t make sound on its own and is meant to be combined with the Teenage Engineering 400, or any other modular synth. The Teenage Engineering 170 is a monophonic analog synthesiser with built-in keyboard, a programmable sequencer, speaker box, and battery pack and is priced at $349. The development team at Teenage Engineering explain a little more about the new range :
“Pocket operator goes modular! The pocket operator family is breaking new frontiers – our small, battery operated and affordable synthesizer today expands into the modular analog universe. With the introduction of three pre-configured chassis and 15 sound modules, there’s finally a way for you to explore the pure fun of modular synthesis in a hassle free way. We have created three kits that include everything you need to get started. Just bend, assemble and patch! It’s never been easier to get started with modular music making.”
