First and silly rhythms with the TE PO-12
The Teenage Engineering PO-12 Rhythm Pocket Calculator is an amazing toy to experiment with rhythms. It is not a super professional drum machine, but more than enough for an amateur like me who just wants to learn. And for a pianist, it can be seen as well as an enhanced metronome. Are you bored of practising with an old metronome? Try the po-12 to have more fun. You can modulate the amount of swing, so it is ideal even for jazz!

I will share here three very silly examples that I have created just to practice with the basics. And since only 16 patterns can be stored, this blog can be a good opportunity to store them in a permanent way by using an image file. For example, let's begin with a very simple one:
