Teenage Engineering OP-1 Portable Synthesizer

Portable 24-button synthesizer, sampler and MIDI controller with a compact, battery-powered design - packed with 10 synth engines, eight stunning effects, and multiple LFOs
MFR# TE002AS001

Product Description

The Teenage Engineering OP-1 is a portable 24-button synthesizer, sampler and MIDI controller with a compact, battery-powered design. Packed with 10 synth engines, eight stunning effects and multiple LFOs, OP-1 is perfect for producers on-the-go. Capture your creations with the built-in 4-track recorder or connect OP-1 to your computer using the USB port for endless possibilities.


OP-1 features four separate modes: synth, drum, tape and mixer. Synth mode lets you create colorful leads, arpeggiated rhythms, and evolving soundscapes using the musical keyboard. Simply select a preset using the eight sound selection keys for instant inspiration or create all new sounds from scratch using 10 powerful synth engines. Use the four endless-rotary encoder knobs to tweak settings like ADSR envelopes, effects, and modulation, all featuring an intuitive graphic display on the built-in OLED screen. Toggle between monophonic, polyphonic, legato or unison modes to create unique and interesting sounds.

Make your music breathe with seven unique LFO algorithms for modulating synth envelope or effects parameters in real-time.


OP-1 also features two built-in samplers, one for instruments and one for percussion sounds and drum kits. Simply select a drum kit preset from with the eight sound selection buttons and trigger a full kit of individual drum samples using the 24 keys keyboard. Create your own drum kit using custom samples or produce unique drum sounds using OP-1s innovative Drum Box, a dual oscillator synthesizer designed for crafting dynamic drum sounds. Each drum kit has four different sub pages that display sample waveforms, dynamic envelope, effects and LFO controls. Use the rotary encoders to tweak pitch, sample start and end points, or even playback direction in realtime to add movement to static loops.


On top of being a powerful synthesizer, drum machine and step sequencer, OP-1 also packs a fully functioning tape machine and 4-channel mixer into its tiny frame. Layer multiple takes onto a single track with unlimited overdubs. You can even edit clips and loops in realtime, just like in a DAW. Adjust levels and panning for all four tracks using the built-in 4-channel mixer. Mute and un-mute tracks on-the-fly to create full arrangements using just four tracks. Control low, mid and high frequencies of each channel using the built-in EQ, or add master effects like reverb, delay, compression and more. Apply drive to your track to add color and interesting textures, or add a limiter to increase the volume of your tracks without fear of clipping.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.

I am a new customer of yours. You guys provided me the absolute best deals in ordering all the equipment to power my brand new recording studio. Your customer service is amazing and i will always deal with you from here on out.
