Nothing’s ear (1). Initial thoughts?
Teenage Engineering's involvement makes me rather hopeful. The OP-1 was a banger.
Worth Every Cent
Over time composing, arranging and producing using a DAW has become something of a chore. The OP1 has breathed new life into my songwriting process. It costs nearly $1,000 because it is worth nearly $1,000. Is there ever price limit on creativity? Here are my favorite things about it: - Full end to ...

It's its own instrument
An amazing portable synth, drum machine, production tool. The OP-1 can be one thing or many things depending on how you use it. To me it's an instrument unto itself. There's a lot of features and it takes some time to learn to use it effectively for recording or live performance but it's definitely ...

Awesome Overpriced Synth
This is a really fun product. I’ve had it for a week and it has been fairly easy to pick up. I think this may be ideal for writing music on the go. This is not very good for live performances. There are probably much better synths for way less money out there if portability wasn’t a concern. The tec...

Is this for you?
The OP-1 is amazing... for the solutions it is directed towards. It's probably not the best thing for you if you are looking for something outside that feature/goal set. It's a wholehearted YES if you want to be musically creative on the go. Minimal kit, and just let your mind fly on the go. I find ...

Looking to buy a synth for my boyfriend for christmas but unsure of what to buy?
* if he is not into retro games vibes, they sell another couple of synths that have the same form factor, but has completely different sounds. ∆ Teenage Engineering - Pocket Operators (under 100$) ∆. good:. + the cheepest groove box you can buy.
Not worth 1300 if you have only 2 months of use.
Two months in and the headphone jack got loose from its connection point. It’s so bad, I didn’t even open the unit and can tell that’s the issue cause I can literally Rotate it 45 degrees with my headphone plug all of a sudden. I’m sorry but for a price tag of $1300 that is completely unacceptable. ...
