Teenage Engineering OP-1 Synthesizer, your portable music lab

By Adrian Prisca


Updated on

The Teenage Engineering OP-1 Synthesizer is a portable music lab, with a convoy of effects, built-in 4-track tape-style recorder, live sampler and eight unique synthesis engines, designed to create gorgeous, crystalline sounds at the push of a button. By manipulating and processing wave forms, synthesizers can produce an unlimited array of sounds.

For beginners, it’s enough to choose a sound effect, as a wave form or even two, modify its tone and volume then use the 2-octave inboard keyboard to play out a song, and voila. If the sounds you produced please your ears, you may as well record them using the tape-style recorder, which works as an analog vintage tape recorder, easy to use and practical.

If it’s not enough for you, go sample pieces from other songs, your own voice or even from the built-in radio, and you’re a musician. The battery that can last for 16 hours per charge plus the portability of the system make this synthesizer ideal for wannabe musicians. You may as well connect it to your PC/Mac/Linux system via a USB port for better access and to transfer your works of art.

You may purchase a piece for the price of $849, so better start saving some money and make more room on your desk to benefit from this little gadget’s technology. It will surely please you.
