OP-1 by Teenage Engineering - Fantastic synthesizers and where to find them #2

Whitemary
The series "Fantastic Synthesizers and Where to Find Them" edited by Biancamaria Scoccia continues with another tutorial about the tools to create music with modern electronic instruments.

TheOP-1 produced by Teenage Engineering is a portable synthesizer, sampler, and controller that has undergone interesting upgrades and restyling in recent years, starting with the OLED screens and ending with the PCB itself.

This small but powerful music production tool can be connected to the computer and can then control a DAW with common play, stop, rec, forward and rewind commands. There are also 4 rotary encoders and 8×2 dedicated hot keys for quick selections.

Everything we do can be recorded on the built-in 4-track, and we can synchronize or change the speed while recording or even reverse record in real time. The Op-1 also offers a 4-channel mixer and built-in EQ and Drive.

Fantastic synthesizers and where to find them, thanks to this-and much more as you will see in the video-this minute plug'n'play item allows us to record a track and have it ready for mixing in a matter of hours.
It is, indeed, an all-in-one synthesizer, sampler and controller. Which means you record, sample, refine, remix, add drums or keyboards, all at the turn of a knob and push of a button, certainly a great tool for those who feel daunted by the complexity of a more classic synthesizer.
