Multimedia Synthesizer & Sequencer

SRP £529.00 inc VAT

OP–Z it’s the first stand-alone 16 track sequencer that allows synchronised live composition of music, visuals, lights. The OP-Z is one of a kind.

Born to be portable, just at 212.5 mm width, 57.5 mm height and 10 mm thin, it weighs in at just 850g. With the absence of a screen, we introduce the concept of ’bring your own display’ - use your iphone, ipad or computer, because the OP-Z is built for people on the move that already carry a great display in their pocket.

Packed with multiple synthesizer engines, beats, samples, effects, visuals and preset patterns, the OP-Z has the ability to control up to 16 lights through dmx, it has a 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.

More… 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. Complete the OP-Z universe with a range of teenage engineering accessories like the bespoke design leather case.

OP-Z, ready to be used anytime, anywhere, straight out of your pocket.

“...the thing that’s kept me coming back to the OP-Z is it’s fantastic ability to take a few simple starting points and instantly turn them into an interesting, varied track using the punch-in effects, step components and master track. And all the goodness of the sequencer is great for driving external synths and apps, especially as there are so many tracks to play with." -  SOS Magazine

"The tonal quality is fairly digital sounding, but that shouldn’t be taken as derogatory. They bring to mind ’90s-style house or classic electro, and paired with the filter and effects, each engine sounds great." - Music Radar
