Update 21 March 2024: Teenage Engineering EP Sample Tool

The new EP Sample Tool from Teenage Engineering is a free browser app that makes short work of importing and exporting samples to and from the EP-133 K.O. II. The app recognizes the sampler when it’s plugged in and gives you easy drag&drop access to its memory. You can import and export samples, rearrange them in memory, and even trim the sample start and end points. Neat!

The Teenage Engineering EP Sample Tool is available free of charge on the manufacturer’s website. Unfortunately, though, it appears that it only works in Google Chrome as of now.

The EP-133 K.O. II is available from Thomann*.

EP-133 K.O. II (Original Post by Robin Vincent, 22 November 2023)

This is certainly one heck of an upgrade over the original Pocket Operator. The PO-33 K.O! was a palm-sized, stripped-back micro sampler with 40 seconds of sample memory and a frantic interface for under one hundred pounds. The EP-133 K.O. II, while following a similar format, looks to be from some other planet, it’s much bigger than you think, and I have to say, it’s pretty stunning. It evidently blends a lot of different Teenage Engineering vibes. It has the opulence of the OP-1 screen and the precision of the TX-6 and TP-7, yet the Pocket Operator’s fun still shines through.

The design and layout are top-notch, everything we expect from T.E. But there’s also an abundance of controls, a generosity in the front panel that’s not as typical. At the time of writing, all I have is a photo and some specs, and I am seriously intrigued.

So, what do we get?

EP-133 K.O. II is a mobile sampler, sequencer and composer. That combination of features is probably what we’d usually call a groovebox. There’s an integrated microphone and speaker and a teeny weeny 64MB to sample into. It can handle 6 stereo or 12 mono voices and has room for 999 individual samples. It samples in 46.875kHz(?) and 16-bit with 32-bit internal processing.

It deals in Projects where each of the nine available Projects can contain 80,000 notes. These are managed through Patterns in Groups of four, where a Pattern has 12 tracks for samples and MIDI. All controls can be recorded and automated, with or without looping.

The numerical pads are pressure and velocity-sensitive with polyphonic aftertouch. They can be used to trigger samples and also drop in effects. There are six built-in send effects and a master compressor.

On the physical connections front, you get a 3.5mm stereo input and output, sync in/out, MIDI in/out and USB-C. 4x AAA batteries can also power it.

It is super thin and super lovely to look at with a sumptuous screen that, at the moment, I’ve got no clue what it does. I imagine all will become clear as soon as this launches.

    I wish I could sample in while hearing the track playing …. Tall ask – but, if I wanted to sample myself playing keys/synths and stack layers to build a track I would need to play each layer with the song in my head from memory – the rearrange/chop to fit- I get that that is how most samplers work – just would like more live sampling options where I could hear the track to play parts along to
