Teenage Engineering will launch a Rick and Morty synth/sequencer

PO-137 features character voices from actor/producer Justin Roiland.

Following news that animated sci-fi comedy Rick and Morty will be returning to screens in November, comes an unexpected collaboration with Teenage Engineering.

The PO-137 – a reference to Dimension C-137 where the protagonists of the show come from – is a limited edition Pocket Operator made in collaboration with Justin Roiland, who voices both titular characters.

The new Pocket Operator has virtually the same feature set as the  PO-35 speak that we reviewed last year, sporting a vocal synth, sequencer, built-in mic, 120 seconds of sample memory and an alarm clock.

Where it differs from the PO-35 is firstly in its styling – it has an all-new LCD with Rick and Morty visuals – and secondly that there are eight voice character sampling options, all of which are provided by Roiland.
