Smooth Pocket Operators Ableton Live Pack


Smooth Pocket Operators

48 Live Clips, 32 Instrument Racks, 200+ Samples, and 1 Live Project to Mix loops, all built from samples of the Teenage Engineering Pocket Operator series. Loads of fun and lots of character!


One of the more surprisingly fun pieces of gear I've bought in a while are Teenage Engineering's Pocket Operators. I picked up the Rhythm, Sub, and Factory models shortly after they were released and have really grown to love them. As soon as I found out about the new models (Arcade, Office, and Robot), I immediately placed an order. The Pocket Operators have an awesome lofi sound and are a lot of fun to play with. I can't recommend them enough.

It's amazing how much fun is packed into these handheld masterpieces.

The Pocket Operators Meet Ableton Live

I'm always amazed at what happens when I start sampling sounds and bringing them into Ableton Live.  Naturally I couldn't wait to see what I could unlock with the Pocket Operators. 

The result is the Smooth Pocket Operators Ableton Live Pack. The Pack contains looping Live Clips, Instrument Racks, samples, and a Live Project you can jam out with. Here's what's included:

  • 48 tempo-synced Live Clips of patterns programmed on the Pocket Operators
  • 32 Instrument and Drum Rack presets built from samples of the Pocket Operators
  • 1 Live Set for mixing and jamming with the 48 Clips
  • 200+ Samples of bleeps, bloops, noises, and loops

I'm so pleased with the sound of the instruments. They capture a special grittiness and character that I've only ever heard  in the Pocket Operators.  Each Instrument Rack and each sound in the Drum Racks are completely customizable. This means that you can take each sound and make it your own. Check out the video below to see what I mean!
