A pocket-sized synthesizer changed the way I think about music
In January, Nathan wrote about a new batch of Teenage Engineering synthesizers, designed to be as cheap as possible, a kind of Minimum Viable Instrument. I bought one as soon as I read the article, and it shipped a few months later. I’ve been playing with it for about a month now. It’s already one of the more interesting devices I’ve owned.
I’m a hobbyist when it comes to music, and what I want in a device is generally something cheap that inspires me to play with a new idea. Awhile back, I bought a Microkorg on eBay — basically a keyboard with an intricate array of knobs attached — which does basically everything I thought I wanted from a synth. Add in a guitar and a microphone and I figured I was more or less set.
