I love Pocket Operators. These tiny handheld samplers, drum machines, and synths not only look awesome, with their cost-saving exposed circuit boards, but you can make some really fun, interesting music with them too. Here I am using one to remix a track from Final Fantasy 7. I don't think you'll be hearing it on the radio any time soon, but it gives you an idea of what these things can do. And just imagine what someone with actual talent could do with it.
