    Product Information

    To celebrate the 10 anniversary of the OP-1, Teenage Engineering has created an all-new OP-1 website. Check it out to view OP-1 footage, community highlights and join the OP-1 beat contest, where you could WIN an OP-1 prize pack, OP-Z or Pocket Operators.

    Teenage Engineering’s OP-1 is the all-in-one portable synthesizer, sampler and controller. The unit is packed with wondrous features like built-in FM radio and an assignable G-force sensor for motion controlled effects… There’s quite nothing like it.

    The unique and award winning design with its colour coded interface makes the OP-1 a synthesizer for everyone. The four coloured encoders, and the symbols on the keyboard are all designed for easy reading and to make it intuitive and non-technical to control and shape your sounds. so, finally, you don’t have to be an engineer to use a synthesizer.

    The vector based graphical user interface is displayed on the brilliant super amoled display running at 60 fps. all graphics run in realtime, so when a modulator is assigned to a synthesizer parameter, you'll see how that specific parameter is animated, telling you exactly what's going on.

    The OP-1’s modular architecture enables endless sound possibilities without making the workflow complicated or distracting. The compact design and real physical interface makes it inspiring to create music, no matter who you are or how experienced you are.

    The OP-1 features 10 synthesizer engines and eight high quality effects and multiple routable LFO’s, so you'll never hit the wall when it comes to creativity or finding the right sound for the job. Add to this the unique built-in sequencers and you'll understand why so many highly regarded producers and artists hold this little machine so dear.

    In controller mode, OP-1 turns in to a fully blown MIDI controller, with access to transport (play/stop, rec, rewind and forward, a two octave keyboard with four endless encoders as well as a sound module that can be controlled from virtually any external software.

    Record anything you create with the 4-track tape feature. Match the tape speed to the sequencer tempo for some really nice overdubbing or change tapespeed while recording. Record backwards in realtime and easily switch to the 4 channel mixer and add some punch with the built in EQ and compressor.

    When you connect OP-1 to a computer using the included USB cable, the OP-1 shows up as a MIDI controller or a storage device. If storage device is selected, just drag and drop audio files between your computer and the OP-1. all 4 tape tracks are available as well as the drum and synthesizer samples. The OP-1 is ready for you to tweak or add creativity directly into your DAW. No additional software or drivers required… Plug and play.

    With update OS #243, every OP-1 is now capable of streaming stereo audio over usb. this means that you can now sample and record to OP-1 directly from any usb audio host, as well as get OP-1 audio straight into your favorite daw, in effect replacing the need for an external sound card. it works with both pc and mac, as well as with ios and android, and has been made possible by adapting and using our knowledge from OP–Z. the update also includes a range of bug fixes and stability improvements.
