TE’s Pocket Operator’s go even more retro with the Capcom series

Play along with some iconic video game characters while you make beats

If Teenage Engineering‘s standard Pocket Operators weren’t evoking enough nostalgia with its LCD screens and stripped back sounds, the new Capcom series should be a bit of a throwback.

Having already gone after Rick and Morty fans last year with the PO-137, the latest collaboration with Capcom will have gamers shouting “Hadouken!”. Two new devices have been unveiled: the PO-133, with sounds from the classic Street Fighter games; and the PO-128, which lets you play along with iconic superhero Mega Man.

The PO-133 Street Fighter is a micro sampler with 40 seconds of sample memory and built-in recording mic. It comes with eight melodic sample slots, eight drum slots, a sequencer, 16 effects and samples and animations based on the Street Fighter game series. There is also a built-in speaker and Jam sync to hook up to other Pocket Operators.

TE’s PO-128 Mega Man is a live synth and sequencer with parameter locks, glide control and punch-in effects. You’ll have access to a 16-step sequencer and 16 patterns, also with a built-in speaker and Jam sync. Both devices can be connected to other audio equipment with a 3.5mm I/O.

Teenage Engineering’s PO-133 Street Fighter is available now for £85 with an optional Red CA-X case for £23. The PO-128 Mega Man will be available from December for £85 with an optional Blue CA-X case for £23, too.
