  • Synthesised Arcade Sounds
  • 16 Punch-In Effects and Parameter Locks
  • 16-Step Sequencer with 16 Patterns
  • 16 Pattern Chaining
  • Chord Chaining


Small enough to fit in your pocket and powered by a pair of AAA batteries, the Teenage Engineering PO-20 Pocket Operator Arcade Synthesiser features real synthesised arcade, drum, and chip-tune sounds with 16 punch-in effects including solo chords, filters, fill-ins, glitches, and arpeggios.

The synthesiser parameters can be locked, while a 16-step sequencer, which holds 16 patterns in memory, can be chained into a song with up to 128 patterns. An integrated clock and alarm clock expand the creative possibilities of the instrument. A jam-sync function with 3.5mm audio in and out connections allows for multiple synthesiser units to be linked together.

Using high-quality components with low-power consumption, the synthesiser is cleverly designed with a Silabs EFM 32 Gecko CPU, a Cirrus Logic DAC, and a Knowles speaker placed under a novel animated LCD on a single circuit board.

A foldout stand makes it easier to play and rear panel speaker solder terminals allow you hook up the unit to a larger sound system. An optional tailor-made silicone pro case (sold separately) adds anti-slip feet, battery protection, and professional-feel buttons to this very unique music-making device.

Prior to the Covid-19 outbreak, service standards for these main centers was overnight. However these services have been impacted greatly, and as such the overnight service has been suspended. Overnight shipping will likely resume once things have returned to normal.

Qualifying main centers include:

  • Brisbane
  • Sydney
  • Adelaide

Whilst this service is extremely efficient and will likely be delivered within 1-2 days 99.9% of the time, it cannot be guaranteed. In the case where something were to go wrong with your delivery and it doesn’t arrive within the specified time frame, in most cases it will be delivered by the next day.

While not all major cities are eligible for overnight delivery, they still benefit from this great service. Other centers throughout Australia will have a typical delivery ETA of 2-4 days. (Excluding rural delivery address where this ETA can be extended to an additional three or more days).

If you require urgent shipping and you don’t reside in one of the cities stated above, please contact us and we can find a solution that works best for you.
