Product Details

  • Model: PO32
  • Item Condition: NEW
  • ID: #103468


Take your drum machine on the road and literally keep in your pocket thanks to the Teenage Engineering Pocket Operator PO-32 Tonic. This smartphone-sized drum machine includes 16 preset sounds that you select with the touch of a button. The simple black-and-white, animated LCD display screen shows you what's happening within the device at any given moment. The beauty of this equipment is that you connect it to other devices using a built-in microphone in front of an amplifier or a cable for a sturdier connection.

Record knob movements and effects on top of the beat thanks to intuitive, one-button controls on the surface of the interface. Connect with the Microtonic VST/AU to tweak the internal parameters in weird ways to produce interesting sounds for your audience. For instance, you can chop a beat into smaller segments to make it sound like bouncing balls. That's just one way this device stands out as unique compared to other drum machines.

The PO-32 has a removable lock tab for write protection of patterns you have saved in the device. The manufacturer increased the hanger strength for extra durability. Look on the backside of unit to see some useful combo reminders.

Store Information


When you shop at Mannys you don’t just get the gear, you get the knowledge and expertise of 25 years of experience as one of Australia’s most influential independent music retailers.

In the beginning…

After managing the Allan’s city store for 10 years, an ambitious Manny Gauci-Seddon decided to open his own music store. He wanted his shop to uphold the values of true support and after-sales service, and to form genuine ongoing relationships with his customer base. The trends of the industry at that time were pointing to more of a disposable, corporate mentality and so in the early years he set out to make a name for himself as a serious independent alternative.

The first store was a funky shop in Smith Street, Collingwood in 1991. By 1998 Manny had outgrown this store and saw the need to focus more on the upcoming computer based recording revolution. He established an address in Johnson St Fitzroy as the arts were booming on the north side of the city. In the same year the opportunity came to acquire a business on Chapel St – the Revolver Music Gallery. With a two store operation Manny was now making the difference he set out to 7 years earlier. The Mannys brand was known for knowledge and service, with the staff greatly sought after for their experience. Unlike the other major players, the focus was not just on sales but also on the process of making music.

When the opportunity came to consolidate into one superstore, the North Fitzroy address seemed perfect for the move. Manny wanted to expand his customer base to include more of the musicians turning to the internet due to the lacklustre service of his competitors. He took the best from both stores and moved his operation to the hub of music and musicians just north of the city.

In November 2016 Mannys was sold to SoundBay Pty Ltd, the operator of Australia’s largest DJ and production retailer, Store DJ. While the essence of Mannys Music will always exist, our mission for Mannys Music moving forward is to ensure that we continue to build the ultimate experience for our customers online or in store. Our sales staff remain knowledgeable, professional musicians first and sales people second. Mannys Music gives you one hub to purchase all of your gear, and if we don’t have it, we’ll try our hardest to get it for you.

Mannys – The best advice you can give a musician.
