New OP1 field

Surprised they are leaning on the thinner, louder aspects (like I never really use the speaker and it’s plenty small enough). Surely the signal path and way better processor is the selling point. Me and my OP-1 aren’t parting ways over this.

It looks lovely. Whether the “100 new features” deliver or not remains to be seen.

INCREASE TO 256 MB INTERNAL MEMORY

Amazing :sweat_smile: in 2030s we’ll have 512 finally.

ive been Beta testing this thing since christmas.

and its in every sense an evolution of the OP-1!

feel free to ask any questions you might have!

if you want to listen to how it sounds heres a free to download bandcamp album of some of my recordings… some slight mastering is the only thing done on it.

I’m lusting bad after this beauty to the point I might have to mute this thread :sweat_smile:

Already weighing up how much overtime I could do to pay this off and convincing myself that because it’s so portable I could make music while I’m doing it. Bastards :rofl:

100 new features. That’s $6 a feature compared to the original.

What careers do you all have to dump 2k into a pda sized synth?

I suppose they’re just leveraging there’s no product like the OP-1 (for better or worse) after so many years.

Yes eye watering but looks like such an amazing upgrade. never thought TE would do such a thing. The whole thing makes sense now, those folk sitting by a lake with an OB-4

And a new carrying case

Not sure I understand the question…

If the sequencer is better then the OP-Z?

Looks fantastic, but that is a lot of dough.

Yes, sorry.

I’m asking if this has the OP-Z sequencer and all its skills, or is it cut down or improved in some way…

I have to recognize I LOVE the concept and most grooveboxes and all-in-one (when including synth at least) but the thing always taking me far from purchasing a second hand OP1 has been the tape paradigm. Is it as annoying as it looks after using Elektron style sequencers?
