Teenage Engineering OP-1 Portable Synthesizer and Bender Accessory
Teenage Engineering OP-1packs a synthesizer, sampler, and controller into a simple and fast interface. The synthesizer features 8 built-in engines (with exchangeable architecture) with 8 quick-selection keys, and 3 great sequencers, enabling instant live tweaks.
You can control modulation in real time and work over a wide range of parameters with the ADSR envelope, multi-effects, and LFOs (low frequency oscillators). One of the LFOs is also controlled by a motion sensor for enhanced sound effects. The built-in 4-track tape recorder not only lets you record your work, but also allows overdubbing with changeable pitch and reverse recording in real time. Additionally, the 4-channel mixer allows you to use the built-in EQ and drive, for adding texture and effects to your recording.
Connect your computer to the standalone OP-1 Synthesizer via USB to convert it into a fun-filled digital audio workstation. The 4 rotary encoders and 8 x 2 quick selection keys enable instant access to play, stop, record, forward, and rewind functions. The synthesizer can also be used as a mass storage device for exchanging audio files with your PC / Mac. Easy-to-use, the OP-1 Synthesizer sports a smart color-coded interface with color graphics on its OLED display. The display is directly related to the 4-color rotary encoders and legend on the keyboard.
Furthermore, this portable synthesizer comes with a long battery life of 16 hours in operation, and over 2 years of standby time, making it ideal for travel and long studio sessions. It features a durable light grey painted CNC aluminum body and has no visible screws. In addition, the OP-1 Synthesizer is packed in an environment-friendly paper foam case that can be reused.
Teenage Engineering Bender Accessory allows physical control of the oscillation on your OP-1 Portable Synthesizer. Simply mount this accessory onto the orange knob of the synthesizer to control the LFO. It comes with a rubber band, which can be attached to the blue knob for elasticity. Simply select the Bender LFO in the LFO browser to bend any synthesizer parameter, be it pitch or filter.
