Teenage Engineering: OP-1
the portable wonder synthesizer
OP-1 is the all-in-one portable synthesizer, sampler and controller. with additional features like a built-in FM radio and an assignable G-force sensor for motion controlled effects, there is nothing quite like it.
OP-1 comes with 10 unique synthesizer engines, all instantly accessible withthe sound selection keys. the synthesis palette ranges from physically modeled string synthesis to frequency modulation. the DNA synthesis is modeled on a machines individually unique ID which makes every OP-1 sound slightly different from another. the synthesis section also includes a selection of exchangeable LFO's, and effects.
sampling is instant with the two built-in samplers, one for instruments like piano and one dedicated for percussion sounds and drum kits that automatically splits a recorded sound and lays it out on the 24 keys. the OP-1 also comes pre-loaded with great kits and instruments, and if you you want to create your own sample library, just sample anything using the built-in microphone or line in. It's never been easier, quicker or more creative to sample.
anything you play, sequence or tweak you are able to record on the built in 4-track tape feature. match the tape speed to the sequencer clock for nice overdubbing with pitch changes, all in sync. change tapespeed while recording, or even record backwards in realtime. adding the optional crank accessory turns the tape into a hand cranked tape recorder.
