Please contact me with information about availability and pricing for Teenage Engineering OP 1 Desktop Synthesizer

It may look like a toy but the Teenage Engineering OP-1 certainly defies its appearance. This compact, mobile synth is solid. The sounds are amazing. You'll have so much fun...we did! The OP-1 comes with eight unique synthesizer engines and eight quick selection keys for instant access. Tweak your sounds in real time and record everything to tape. All sounds are made up from the Engine, ADSR envelope, a dedicated Effect and a selection of LFOs. All elements are fully exchangeable.

    • Teenage Engineering OP 1 PRODUCT FEATURES:

      Press the Drum key to enter Drum Sampler mode. Op-1 comes loaded with great kits, but if you feel that you want your own, just press the mic key to sample anything from the buil-in microphone or line in. And if that's not enough you just connect your OP-1 to your computer and drag and drop any .aif file straight to the OP-1.

      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 tapespeed while recording, or even record backwards in realtime. Switch to the 4 channel mixer and add som texture with the built in EQ and Drive.

      The final stage of your sound ends up in the Mixer. Here you set the Level and the Pan for all four individual tracks. Add addtional Master EQ and Master Effect to the tape. You may also add some extra Drive and Master Level/Balance. Punch in some parameter changes with the Tape Tricks keys Memo 1+2.
