Yeah that's exactly why I think it would be fun too. I just have big hands that make small things feel toy-like.

Re: tenor scale length: tuning in 5ths kinda erases most of the "cramped" effect of short scale b/c high tension, and you're gonna have more notes per string, giving your meat mitts more room to stretch out. At one point I was alternating bass (also tuned in 5ths b/c brainz hurtz moar than handz) and mandolin in the same band, and it really wasn't too bad....

That said, mandocelli is something the world needs more of....

I am bummed that company is marketing the lap mando though, b/c it really takes the wind out of the sails of my slide mando feature (actually it's a great idea)....

also: BASS VI MANDOCELLO! :joy: :omg: :!!!:

Illuminated knobs on this pedal series are a great idea. I hate looking down and not being able to tell what my settings are. I hate super shiny knobs, knobs with tiny indicator marks or no indicator marks at all. Might look cool but functionality is more important than style.

Nice toyyy Warren Ellis noises coming :)

Yeah, I'm very excited! Depending how much I like it, I'm toying with the idea of trying to find one of his tenor or tenor baritone guitars as well

So it made it here today and I really, really dig it so far. Very comfortable and sounds amazing! Surprised at how well it plays through some dirt. Going to need to spend some more time with it to learn some chords and scales, but so far I think this thing is a keeper!

I got a Audio Damage plugin (Ratshack Reverb) for the ipad based on an old Radio Shack Realistic BBD reverb/delay and it rules... so now I have a real one coming.

Not out of personal experience but an abundance of caution, you should probably avoid UAD plugins until after winning a lottery jackpot. Fairchild limiters not being cheap and all.

I clicked on a link for their new interfaces after one of the release videos... and found out that the first desktop with more than two inputs is $1700. No worries there.

Sounds like you already went ahead and snagged one. I'd recommend going Tonic, PO-32 over the rhythm one as there are more options and functions available on the PO-32. While you certainly can use one as your main drum sound, as mentioned, there is a lot of tweaking involved/available. I love the size and that you can link them together, but to me, they are more fun toys as opposed to musical instruments. Sure, you CAN make a song, album, whatever w these little gadgets, but you can also make music with pretty much anything. Making music w Pocket Operators is more gimicky than anything else in my opinion. No denying that they are fun AF to play with though.

If you didn't already get one, I'd watch the used market. A few months ago when I first started collecting these, they were priced much lower used than these days. It seems that they gained a lot of popularity in recent months and as such, more are available used and more people are trying to make their money back as opposed to offering good deals. You can definitely find one with a case that is priced right around where the high end of used ones are without a case.
