    The OP-1's modular architecture enables endless sound possibilities without making the workflow complicated or distracting. The compact design and real physical interface makes it inspiring to create music, no matter who you are or how experienced you are.
    Synthesizer And Controller
    With ten synthesizer engines, eight high quality effects and multiple routable LFO's, you'll never hit the wall when it comes to creativity or finding the right sound for the job. Add the unique built-in sequencers on top of that and you'll understand why so many highly regarded producers and artists hold this little machine so dear.
    In controller mode, OP-1 turns in to a full blown MIDI controller, with access to transport (play/stop, rec, rewind and forward) a two octave keyboard with four endless encoders as well as a sound module that can be controlled from virtually any external software.
    4-Track Tape Feature
    Record anything you create with the 4-track tape feature. Match the tape speed to the sequencer tempo for some really nice overdubbing. Change tape speed while recording, or record backwards in realtime. switch to the 4 channel mixer and add some punch with the built in EQ and compressor. Finally, create a live mix in album mode on a virtual vinyl.
    Works With Your Other Stuff
    When you connect OP-1 to a computer using the included USB cable, the OP-1 shows up as a MIDI controller or a storage device. If storage device is selected, just drag and drop audio files between your computer and the OP-1. All 4 tape tracks are available as well as the drum and synthesizer samples. Everything ready for you to tweak or add to your DAW. No additional software or drivers required. Just plug and play.
    Colour Coded Interface
    The unique and award winning design with its colour coded interface makes the OP-1 a synthesiser for everyone. The four coloured encoders, and the symbols on the keyboard are all designed for easy reading and to make it intuitive and non-technical to control and shape your sounds. So, finally, you don't have to be an engineer to use a synthesizer.
    Super Amoled Display
    The vector based graphical user interface is displayed on the brilliant super amoled display running at 60 fps. All graphics run in realtime, so when a modulator is assigned to a synthesiser parameter, you'll see how that specific parameter is animated, telling you exactly what's going on.
    16 Hours Battery Life
    You can travel the Atlantic Ocean and back again, constantly making music on your OP-1 before it runs out of power. With over 2 years of stand by time, you can pick it up and create whenever you feel for it. Charging is easy with the provided cable plugged into any computer or phone charger that has a USB connector.
    Creative Add-Ons
    Available as an option is a complete range of truly creative OP-1 accessories. Like the crank accessory, which let's you hand crank sequencers, the tape and in fact hand crank any parameter of your choice. The fm antenna increases the signal reception for the built-in fm radio. Finally, a great for travel, soft-case is available in black and OP-grey.
