Superbooth 2018: Twisted Electrons hapiNES and µAcid8

Twisted Electrons is boarding the Pocket Operator train with their announcement of two new ‘naked’ pocket machines called the hapiNES and µAcid8. The cool thing is they’re both compatible with Teenage Engineering Pocket Operator synch modes so you can create a mobile chiptune set.

Here’s what they have to offer:
