Song-A-Day & #RPM Challenge 14 – ‘End Credits’ Synthwave on PO-20 Po-28 & Blofeld

Published on Feb 15, 2019 ChrisLody

“So here’s a bit of chip tune inspired music on the Pocket Operator PO-20 Arcade and PO-28 Robot, which are a match made in heaven in my opinion, joined eventually by a C64 style pwm lead sound on the Waldorf Blofeld. It has a really nice wavetable called Micro PWM which sounds like it must have been sampled from a SID chip to me as it’s very close to the

OPERATORS UNITE!

Get some hands-on demo time with one of Sweden’s most innovative synth design companies. TE will be in-store @ Control Voltage from 2-4pm with casual hands-on / plug ‘n play demonstrations of their multimedia synthesizer & sequencer the OP-Z as well as the Pocket Operator 30 Series (Tonic, K.O! & Speak)…. and they ‘might’

Teenage Engineering OP-1 synth is back in stock, here to stay

It put the boutique Swedish maker on the music map, and helped usher in new interest in mobile devices and slick design. Now the OP-1 from Teenage Engineering is back in stock, and its makers say it’s here to stay.

That should be good news for OP-1 fans. Sure, the OP-Z has some fancy new features, but it loses the all-in-one functionality and inviting display on the OP-1. And Pocket Operators – both in their original mini-calculator form and now in a line of inexpensive kit modular – well, that’s for another audience. The OP-1, love it or hate it, is really unlike anything else out there. And someone must want it, because it’s been in demand a full decade after its first appearance.

Teenage Engineering shared today they were resurrecting the OP-1 ( under a headline “love never dies,” for Valentine’s Day). Here’s that announcement:

after being out of stock for more than a year with rumours of its demise, we are very happy to let you know that finally, the OP-1 is back and here to stay!

so what happened?

during our nine years of production, we have been very lucky in having a steady supply of the components needed for the OP-1. but last year we suddenly found ourselves without the amoled screen needed and nowhere to find new ones in the same high quality. but after a long time sourcing the perfect replacement, we have finally found it, and we will now be able to fulfil the demand that’s been growing for the past year.

Hmm, maybe the Teenagers want to start a side business reselling that display part? I’m interested.

Anyway, you can buy an OP-1 new now if you couldn’t find it on the used market – or watch for used prices to come down accordingly. Let’s celebrate with a little OP-1 reminiscence, as I know for some of you, Teenage Engineerings’ other stuff just doesn’t compare.

Also – shoes!

TĀLĀ is right – Teenage Engineering OP-1 is a great desert island synth

Teenage Engineering OP-1 // Is Really Worth it?

Published on Feb 14, 2019 Audio Wanderer

“New batch of OP-1 announced from the cool cats of Teenage Engineering, and surprise…They raise the the price in some hundreds… [announced here] So is time to ask yourself…Is really worth it for that price?
I was a happy owner of one of the first batch of this machine and here are my thoughts”

The Teenage Engineering OP-1 is Back at $1299

No new features. It used to go for $799, but the new price should at least help curb prices on Reverb, eBay, and Amazon.

Published on Feb 12, 2019 Synth & Sundry

“The OP-1 portable synth (which is not discontinued) puts out a decent sounding velvety bass on which the jam builds on. With beats riding that crazy CWO effect. All the meanwhile, a Phase synth provides the lead sound (if memory serves me right). The radio samples are run through the delay effect. In the meantime the M1 and M2 slots affect the master EQ
