CrowdSupply recently launched the Pocket Integrator, which is an add-on board for the compact programmable synthesizer/sequencer Pocket Operator released some years ago. This add-on board allows the user to control the time, tempo and also send MIDI & sync to the PO in real time.

According to the product page, the microcontroller found on the Pocket Integrator is the RP2040 along with a 6-axis IMU.


  • RP2040 –  Dual-core ARM Cortex M0+ (Up to 133Mhz); 264 KB SRAM
  • iNEMO LSM6DSO32X – 6-Axis Gyro/Accelerometer

The company mentions that The Pocket Integrator can be attached to any Pocket Operator model without any modification. Additionally, there is a USB type-C which can be used to power the Pocket Operator instead of the the AAA batteries.

The  device offers three modes available: Subtle, Total and Nonstop. The Subtle mode allows the user to make small adjustments to the time and tempo. On the other hand, the Total mode allows the user to have complete control of every beat. Lastly, the Nonstop mode “continuously sends MIDI & sync as you stop/start the PO – handy for live performance”.
