Featured in this video. "I think one of the first things that most people notice about the OP-Z is that it doesn't have a screen. The screen on the OP-1 gives you a lot of really great visual feedback. But I don't miss it as much as I thought I would. What they've done with the lights on the OP-Z, the different colored lights, the lights that are in almost all of the buttons, they really give you a lot of good feedback about what's going on."more
It’s been over six years since Teenage Engineering released OP-1, the revolutionary portable all-in-one synthesizer which has now become an icon in the music industry. To be honest, many were skeptical at launch, labelling it as a toy and not a real synthesizer because of its color coded knobs, its creative user interface, and for some it was just because of its size—a synthesizer has to be big to sound big right?
Today, with the introduction of the all new OP-Z, we will push the boundaries even further. This time the machine is so small we guarantee it will upset you. It’s about half the size of OP-1, but comes with more dsp power that consumes less energy so now you can fly the atlantic 4 times back and forth, sequencing complete songs on 16 dedicated tracks before you run out of power. When ready to land, just slide it in your inner pocket.
Still, OP-Z is about a lot more than just composing music. The Z stands for the third dimension, the depth, the creativity involved in making music. Imagine animated art and videos that accompany your live show, or sequenced lighting, all the way down to composing your own interactive software. Some people would call a device like this a dream machine.
We call it OP-Z.
