Voice Synthesis Without The Hassle
Christian3535, 30.10.2018
I bought the PO-35 as an addition to my 8 vocoders and various other synth engines and samplers. This is a very useful device if you want to create artificial vocal effects quickly and with good audio quality. You can record your spoken phrases using the built in microphone or line input. This recording is used to drive the various synth engines the PO-35 has on offer. If you are looking for a sampler then this probably isn't the device for you, there are other things to buy for sampling. You need to keep in mind this is a voice synthesiser and not a sampler in the true sense. I've had some great results so far ranging from Kraftwerk styles, Daft Punk etc. Very quick to use but you will need to spend a little time learning the various keyboard shortcuts of which there are several. I'm putting together a cheat sheet to remind myself as I don't think I'll remember them all and there are some functions that aren't listed in the manual but you can find easily enough by searching on the internet for PO-35 secrets. I really like trying ideas and they sound great. It is a shame the silicone cases are so expensive, I just can't bring myself to pay for one. It should be fine without a case if you are careful with it. If you like voice synths then this is the device for you.

good little toy for messing with
electriccbeauty , 28.05.2019
only reason i bought this was because getting the train to college every morning was pretty boring.
turns out i was really satisfied with this purchase its so fun just for making quick and easy beats very good pass time.
obviously this is not meant to used for full on production. but if you want something to pass the time go for it!
price is very resealable.
note, if you are planning on buy this do not forget to buy a case these can brake very easy if not taking care of correctly.

Gut durchdachter kleiner Taschenrechner
French, 26.02.2018
Der Po-35 ist mein erster Pocket Operator. Ich fand die Idee einfach lustig, ehrlich gesagt ohne genau zu wissen, ob oder inwiefern ich den Po nachher in meinem Setup gebrauchen kann.

Es macht einfach tierisch Spaß irgendwas aufzunehmen und zu tweaken. Schon erstaunlich, was man alles in so eine kleine Box bringen kann, wenn man bedenkt, dass die Logik inklusive Speaker nur hinter dem Bildschirm sitzt.
Vom Lautsprecher sollte man natürlich nicht zu viel erwarten, aber er ist für seine Größe auf jedenfall schon gut laut.

Wirklich gelungen finde ich, dass ich den Po problemlos in mein Setup einbinden kann, indem ich ihn mit meinem Volca Kick synce - Kabel rein, Sync2 einstellen - fertig.

Ein weiteres tolles Feature ist das Pattern Chaining.
Habe ich zum Beispiel etwas aufgenommen, dass zwei Pattern lang ist, kann ich einfach zwei Pattern chainen, drücke auf Play und spiele den Sound live ein. Das aufgenommene wird automatisch auf beide Pattern "verteilt" und das auch sauber. So lassen sich dann auch wirklich die gesamten 8 Sekunden, die man pro Aufnahme hat, nutzen.

Was mich ein wenig stört, ist, dass das Mikrofon manchmal etwas zu sensibel scheint und die Aufnahmen schnell "verrauschen", was vielleicht aber auch einfach am Algorithmus liegt, die Aufnahme synthetisiert. Hier muss man einfach etwas mit der Lautstärke, Abstand zum Gerät und der Aussprache herumspielen oder den Linein nutzen.

Ein zweiter kleiner Minuspunkt ist, dass ich leider nur zwei Voices habe (eine Drum Voice und eine "Synth" Voice), wohingegen die Po-32/33 jeweils 4 Voices haben. Allerdings kann ich mir auch gut vorstellen, dass sich zwei Synth Voices schnell matschig anhören würden und außerdem würde es wahrscheinlich einfach den 40 Mhz Prozessor überfordern.

Alles in allem bin ich sehr zufrieden mit dem Taschenrechner und freue mich darüber, ihn auch in meinem Setup nutzen zu können :)

Petite Bombe !
Marilyn, 30.12.2019
Acheté pour initiation avec mon enfant de 7 ans. J'avoue avoir due lui décrypter les combinaisons de commandes. Il les a rapidement intégrés. Faire des loop et sons c'est d'une simplicité avec un si petit appareil !
Les +
Bonne durée de vie des piles.
Sortie HP intégré ou via jack 3.5. (enregistrement possible donc)
Le micro ou entré jack 3.5 top pour faire des mix.
Deux potards faciles a régler avec 4 fonction total !

Les -
Appareil petit pour des grosses mains.
Devoir parfois presser plusieurs boutons mm temps.
Lisibilité des différentes paternes un poil complexe.

Voila. Mais compte tenu du prix et de la taille de l'engin. Son extrême portabilité remporte sur ces quelques défauts.
