Synthesizer and controller

8 built-in synthesizer engines, multiple effects and LFOs. And some really unique sequencers ready to explore. Connect it to your computer and control your DAW with the common play, stop, rec, forward and rewind. Use the 4 rotary encoders and 8 x 2 dedicated quick keys for fast selections.

Built in 4-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 some texture with the built in EQ and Drive.

Drag and drop

When plugged to a MAC/PC using USB, the OP-1 shows up as a mass storage device. Ready for you to drag and drop audio files between your computer and the OP-1. The 4 tape tracks are available as well as sampled waveforms for you to manipulate. No additional software or drivers required. Just plug and play.

Colour coded interface

The unique OP-1 colour coded interface with colour graphics on the beautiful OLED display is direct related to the four colour rotary encoders and the legend on the keyboard. Easy reading and a non-technical way to control and shape your sounds. Finally, you don't have to be a scientist to use a synthesizer.

16 Hours Battery Power

Playing at maximum volume you can travel over the Atlantic Ocean two ways constantly making music on your OP-1 before it runs out of power. And at the same time have over 2 years of stand by time.
