Teenage Engineering's PO-32 Tonic offers infinite sonic possibilities in a credit-card sized device. In fact, it is probably the most compact drum machine ever! And best of all, PO-32 Tonic's sound engine is based on Sonic Charge's Microtonic virtual percussion synth, so the sound is 100% synthetic and absolutely no samples are used. In this course, G.W. Childs reveals the ins and outs of this micro-scopic (but macro-sounding!) device.

First, you get an overview of the PO-32: you learn how to power it up, set the alarm clock (yes, this drum machine features an alarm clock!), and how to start selecting and playing patterns. G.W. then shows you how to record and edit your own patterns, either via step editing or by recording in real time. He explains how to add life and movement to your beats by recording mutes, morphing sounds, and adding swing, accents & effects. You also learn how to unleash PO-32's full sonic potential with Sonic Charge's Microtonic plugin, how to transfer data from your computer to your device, and how to sync your PO-32 with other devices. Believe us... beat-making has never been so fun!

So what are you waiting for? It's time to take out the PO-32 out of your pocket, and start groovin' with G.W. Childs!
