Born to be portable at just 212.5 mm wide, 57.5 mm in height and 10 mm thick, it weighs in at just 850g. With the absence of a screen, Teenage Engineering introduces the concept of ’bring your own display’ - use your iPhone, iPad or computer - the OP-Z is built for people on the move that already carry a great display in their pocket.

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 you interact with your own 3D worlds, as well a built-in photomatic feature which allows you to instantly sequence images taken with your smartphone camera.
