Teenage Engineering OP-1 – OS Update
The extremely popular OP-1 gets a well deserved OS update, details below:
(Introductory NOTE: This is a longer original introduction to the new OS that I put together. It has outdated graphics that have since been polished. This is one example of what takes place during beta testing. All sound features are unchanged. There is a much more in depth level of explanation of operation of the new OS here and it would be a shame to have this sit on a shelf… so here you go.)
This video is an introduction and demo of the May 2013 OS update to the amazing Teenage Engineering OP-1 synthesizer music machine. In this update two astounding new features are added in the form of the “DNA” synthesizer engine and the “CWO” Frequency Shifting Delay. The DNA engine is a noise engine capable of complete aggression and fax machine battle while at the same time possessing the ability for harmonic tonal leads and chords. The CWO FX is a Frequency Shifter with a wide range that make it possible to do phasing, flanging, chorus, tremelo, ring mod and comb filter types of sounds. You have to hear it to believe it. CWO also represents the first partnership by Teenage Engineering with an outside developer to co-op code to add to the OP-1’s already heavy arsenal of sound capability. This developer is the one and only sonic master mind Magnus Lidström of Sonic Charge. I hope you enjoy the video and the demo. Most of your questions will be answered in the video and I try to do my best balancing act between info and sound. Soon you will be able to upload this OS yourself and I look forward to hearing (and seeing) what you can create with this as well as part of the OP community.
Note: This is a pre-release build and final features may vary slightly from those shown in these clips. All music is original and no creative rights have been infringed upon in the making of this video
