Teenage Engineering OP-1 Update
Teenage Engineering introduced an update to the OP-1 at Frankfurt with various new features.
Get ready for the new OP-1 OS. This time we´ve focused on instant fun. Yet, under the cute surface there´s some serious research and development to make your OP-1 even more intuitive and inspiring. So don’t get shocked by the kooky gorilla drummer or the ol´skool drum synthesizer, because we are serious about making music more amusing than ever before.
You asked for more sequencer patterns. You got it. You’ve had wet dreams about instant fill-ins? You got that to. Chaining patterns? Check. Add a truly inspiring visual interface on top and you get the Finger sequencer. Now you have 14 polyphonic patterns that you can chain, mix and replace at your fingertips. Everything in perfect sync. Super easy to use and more fun than ever. It’s almost like a musical auto-pilot!
The Finger sequencer has a 32 step pattern per key. And every pattern is polyphonic which means you may enter a complete melody on every single key. A pattern has an adjustable length that lets you play a 4 step sequence on one key and a 32 step sequence on another.
Even the graphics change between synthesizer and drum mode.
As a part of making connectivity even more fun, we’ve added a quadruple MIDI Modulator/LFO. Now you can modulate four params at the same time by using external controllers over MIDI. A perfect companion to our Oplab Musical Experimental Board.
The OP-1 Controller mode now integrates out of the box with Propellerhead’s Reason 6.0.2. The Remote protocol is hooked up and ready to use.
Introducing a completely new drum Synthesizer based on two multi-shaped oscillators, a filter and a source mixer. With double envelopes you have the choice to shape any percussion sound, from hi-hats to kicks and snares all the way to fat bass sounds.
The perfect compliment to the Drum Sampler, mix up you beats with unique Drum Box synthesized sounds.
Create a full range of drum sounds from just eight parameters.
You travel. You have your OP-1 in your bag. Need to kill some time, right? As a part of the new OS update we included the game “ChopLifter”. You control your little helicopter by turning the four colored knobs. Use the wire and clamp to lift up things and transport them around the game world.
You have to figure out the magic key-combo to launch the game. Good luck, you’ll need it.
It’s a pretty darn hard game.
