Teenage Engineering Making headway on OP-1 Portable Synthesizer and Controller


Teenage Engineering is at NAMM 2010 and appears to have made progress with the OP-1 (see video of demo at bottom of post). The OP-1 is a is billed as an “…all-in-one portable Synthesizer, Sampler and Controller. With additional features like the FM Radio and a G-Force sensor for pitch and bend effects.” The synth looks to have a stunning high-contrast display.

Some notable features:

  • Built-in audio recorder
  • The 8 Synthesizer engines: FM, strings, DRW, Pulse, T10m Cluster, PSE
  • Built-in Mic
  • Sampling
  • 512 MB Nand Flash storage
  • image Hardened design with expected lifespan of 10 million keystrokes per key, industrial grade incremental encoders, Zinc diecast and fiber enforced high performance plastic, aluminum body

MusicRadar posted a video from the NAMM Demo.


In  the video above they estimate price between $500-$1,000 with a late 2010 or early 2011 delivery. So, start saving your pennies as this looks like a killer portable music workstation monster.
