Teenage Engineering OP-1 synthesizer now available for pre-order, we tour its shiny new features (video)
In an period of synth-toy overload, the OP-1 is certainly doing its factor to set itself aside from the pack. It would not have stunned us if it by no means got here out, merely vanishing into the ether like most too-good-to-be-true hardware tends to do. However the nice Swedes of Teenage Engineering are in Anaheim for NAMM with a manufacturing mannequin on the ground, and now it is actually, really up for pre-order (please permit eight weeks for manufacturing and processing) for $799 at their website. There are boatloads of updates from the OP-1’s we have seen prior to now: the little white slab with the colourful LCD now sports activities a raft of various sequencing modes, new stunningly visualized results (just like the boxer up above for punch…get it?), an accelerometer, and an FM radio, of all issues. Video tour of all of the shiny new options after the break.
