This great little synth allows you to MIDI chain multiple synths so you can add layer upon layer to create great unique sounds. The Pocket Piano is a fun and versatile It has seven synth modes, a rugged anodised aluminium and wood enclosure and 18 maple keys. It’s got a 3W built-in speaker and a line out audio jack.

- Octave Cascade
- Mono FM Synth
- FM Arpeggiator

To operate, turn it on and start playing keys. Use the Mode button to select modes. Depending on the mode, you can select from four wave forms (sine, square, triangle or sawtooth) or increase the octave with the auxiliary button. Each mode has two parameters that are controlled by the two left knobs.
The following modes offer four voice polyphony: Vibrato Synth, Harmonic Sweeper, 2-Octave Arpeggio, Octave Cascade, FM Arpeggio. The remaining modes (Mono FM Synth, Mono Glider) are monophonic.
The tuning knob adjusts the keyboard over two octaves and the far right knob controls volume. The ‘Hold’ function maintains notes are playing and frees up your hands for other musical tasks.
The MIDI option features two MIDI jacks for MIDI In & Out/Thru to interact with many other MIDI devices: drum machines, sequencers, computers, synthesizers, and other Pocket Piano MIDIs. It is both a sound module and a controller, sending and receiving MIDI note messages, and generating or syncing to MIDI clock signals.
As a sound module, the Pocket Piano MIDI responds to all 88 notes of a full size piano, so you can expand on the Pocket Piano's 16 note keyboard. Using an external controller, you can take advantage of the Pocket Pianos unique sounds and arpeggiators over a much larger range. Larger range = more fun!
But the fun doesn't stop there - the Pocket Piano MIDI also sends and receives MIDI clock, so you can synchronise the Pocket Piano's arpeggiators with your favourite drum machine, sequencer, or computer software. The Pocket Piano MIDI passes all received clock messages to its output, allowing you to chain many Pocket Pianos together to create an orchestra of Pocket Pianos.
