Teenage Engineering launches the OP-Z multimedia synth and sequencer
Teenage Engineering has launched the OP–Z, claimed to be: ‘…the first stand-alone 16-track sequencer that allows synchronised live composition of music, visuals and lights’.
Measuring just 212.5 mm wide, 57.5 mm in height and 10 mm thick, it weighs in at just 850g, the OP-Z dispenses with a screen, leaving users to ‘bring your own display’ – meaning an iPhone, iPad or computer.
Packed with multiple synthesiser engines, beats, samples, effects, visuals and preset patterns, the OP-Z also has the ability to control up to 16 lights through DMX, it has Unity 3d integration to let users interact with their own ‘3D worlds’, as well a built-in photomatic feature which allows them to instantly sequence images taken with those from a smartphone camera.
The OP-Z has an expansion slot for modules that will add a range of hardware upgrades, each with its own unique functionality. The first module will be launched later this year and a leather case is an optional extra.
The OP-Z begins shipping mid-October 2018 priced at RRP £529.
