Teenage Engineering's OP-1 gives you 8 Built-in Synthesizer Engines, multiple effects and LFO’s with some really unique sequencers, ready for you to explore. Control your DAW with your computer with the common play, stop, record, fast forward and rewind commands. 2 sets of 8 dedicated quick keys and 4 rotary encoders allow for fast selections, plus its built in 4-Track Tape feature lets you to record your work, reverse record, overdub or apply any of the available multiple effects to make your track what you want it to be.

4-Track Tape Built in
Record everything on the built in 4-track tape. Match the speed to the sequencer clock for overdubbing, pitch changing and tuning. While you record, you can change the speed even record backwards in realtime. Perfect your sound with EQ, drive and FX by switching to the 4 Channel Mixer.

Drag & Drop
The OP-1 appears as a  Storage Device when connected into a Mac or PC through USB, so you can drag and drop audio between the OP-1 and your computer. The 4-Track Tape tracks are also available as as sampled waveforms for you to export and manipulate. There are no additional drivers software or required! Just plug and PLAY.

Color-Coded Interface
The unique OP-1 color coded interface with color graphics on the beautiful OLED display is directly related to the four color rotary encoders and legend on the keyboard. Easy reading gives you a non-technical way to shape and control your sounds. You don't have to be a scientist to use this synthesizer.
