Teenage Engineering OP1

The Teenage Engineer OP1 is a unique polyphonic digital synthesizer, with multiple synthesis engines, sampling capabilities, 4 track recording and powerful effects processing power.


Almost incomparable in terms of features, to say that the OP-1 is just a synthesizer is underselling its capabilities somewhat. 


The OP-1 includes 11 advanced synthesis engines ranging from physical string modelling, wavefolding to sample synthesis. Each synth engine or module includes four fixed parameters for sound editing, which are controlled by their corresponding coloured encoders.


Every sound engine includes an ADSR style EG and an LFO with multiple modes for dialing modulation. Destinations and include the synthesis parameters or the effects sections.


When it comes to sampling, the op-1 doesn't disappoint. There's a built in microphone and a 3.5mm jack input for capturing audio, it even has a built in FM radio. OP-1 slices incoming audio into transients across the keyboard, making it easy to build up samples and rhythms easily.


Sequencing on OP1 is not only simple, it's also fun. There are a wealth of sequencing engines onboard, there's even a MIDI piano roll for drawing in MIDI. I should mention here that OP1 syncs to incoming USB MIDI clock, so getting things in time with your DAW is super easy.


For sketching out ideas or even writing a full live set there is a fully featured crop and drop 4-track tape recorder.


Effects wise, there's 8 effects engines ranging from destructive distortions and compressors to obscure side chaining, filtering cows....yep, cow, spelled CWO.


A classic synth, that's got a dedicated cult following for very good reason, OP1 might look like a toy, but its nothing of the sort.
