      Teenage Engineering

      Beautifully engineered synth, sounds even better than it looks.

      The OP-1 from Teenage Engineering is a synth like no other. With its futuristic design, the OP-1 takes on the role of synthesizer, sampler, and controller all-in-one highly stylized package. This synth is something to behold, but it sounds even better than it looks, with exciting features like the FM Radio and an assignable G-Force sensor for motion controlled effects. Op-1 also incorporates a built-in Tape feature that gives you the ability to record everything you do on up to four tracks, with overdubbing and reverse recording functions.

      Synthesizer and controller
      8 built-in synthesizer engines, multiple effects and LFO’s. And some really unique sequencers ready to explore. Connect it to your computer and control your DAW with the common play, stop, rec, forward and rewind. Use the 4 rotary encoders and 8 x 2 dedicated quick keys for fast selections.

      Built in 4-track tape
      Record everything on the built in 4-track tape. Match the tape speed to the sequencer clock for some really nice overdubbing with changing pitch. Change tape speed while recording, or even record backwards in real-time. Switch to the 4-channel mixer and add some texture with the built in EQ and Drive.

      Drag and drop
      When plugged to a Mac/PC using USB, the OP-1 shows up as a mass storage device. Ready for you to drag and drop audio files between your computer and the OP-1. The 4 tape tracks are available as well as sampled waveforms for you to manipulate. No additional software or drivers required. Just plug and play.

      Color-coded interface
      The unique OP-1 color-coded interface with color graphics on the beautiful OLED display is direct related to the four-color rotary encoders and the legend on the keyboard. This makes for extremely easy reading and a non-technical way to control and shape your sounds. Finally, you don’t have to be a scientist to use a synthesizer.

      16 Hours Battery Power
      Playing at maximum volume you can travel over the Atlantic Ocean twice, constantly making music on your OP-1 before it runs out of power. And at the same time have over 2 years of stand by time.

          I have wanted an OP-1 since I started making my own music and finally got one for a great price from Musicians Friend. After using it for only 2 days I am planning on meeting it's parents and seeing about starting a family with it, I am head over heels in love!

          Comments about Teenage Engineering OP1 Portable Synthesizer:

          For me, the best thing this device does, it shows up on my computer as just another disk drive, allowing me to drag .aif files to and from it, which is useful as a backup, and as a way to put in new sounds. The tape function is great for loop building and songwriting, the drum machine has some awesome sounds built-in. As a performance synth, it's solid. I just need to buy an Oplab to get the MIDI interfaced with my stage piano, then I'll be all set; the lack of onboard MIDI is a little inconvenient for now.

          I like it though, because it's like a bunch of musical devices from the past several decades all packed into a device no bigger than a computer keyboard. Overall top notch device, priced right where it needs to be. Look out for OS updates from Teenage Engineering, they often include new synthesizer modes and other functionality.

            This tiny device is incredibly powerful in sculpting just about any kind of sound you can imagine. The innovative interface makes sound-sculpting an absolute joy. I just wish there was a way I could save the sounds that I create for later use.
