Teenage Engineering OP-1 field

The Teenage Engineering OP-1 field gets a healthy update to OS version 1.5 and introduces a couple of new goodies.

OP-1 Field 1.5.0

The first new feature is terminal. By which I don’t mean it’s the end of line for this coolest of music machines (I know, I’m hilarious); Terminal is name of a new bit-crusher effect. It has an anti-aliasing filter and a good amount of lo-fi vibes.

It also adds a bounce feature to the tracks called Merge Drop. It will drop all your lifted takes onto the active track with a shortcut key combination, leaving you more room to keep on creating.

Well, I’m not exactly stunned by the extraordinariness of the evolution but hey, we get another effect and can bounce takes – that’s pretty groovy.

You can download the update from here.

OP-1 field

Original post from 20th of May 2022.

It appears that rumours of the OP-1’s demise have been exaggerated as Teenage Engineering reveals an all-new version. It’s packed full of every enhancement, update and evolution TE could think of and the list of new features is bordering on the ridiculous.

Within the all-new low profile aluminium body we find a fatter and louder sound over the new speaker system with a passive driver, Bluetooth MIDI, USB-C and a 24-hour battery life. The whole signal chain is now 32-bit stereo and you have multiple tapes and different recording formats. There’s a new reverb, a “Dimension” synth engine and FM broadcasting. The screen has been upgraded and all the graphics have been reworked to look fabulous.

But that’s just the start of it. Teenage Engineering says there are 100 new features which make you think they could have called it the OP-2. This quote sums it up nicely:

Think of OP–1 field as the natural continuation of its predecessor. Updated with the latest technology, improved design and finely tuned with professional musicians, recording artists and sound designers in mind. Higher quality in all aspects, from its circuitry to connectivity and flexibility, it’s tailor made for professionals in the field.

TE has even worked on the feel of the device with a warm underside and velcro rings for attaching covers and accessories.

Field System

Teenage Engineering is fleshing out a “field system”. This started with the TX-6 portable mixer/synth. The idea is that you have a system which is battery powered and rechargeable for genuinely portable and travelable music-making.

Otherwise, the OP-1 field is a synthesizer, sampler and controller with built-in sensors, 4-track recording and effects processing. The colour changes are interestingly subdued and I like the metering; it looks amazing.  It’s going to make a lot of people very happy.

The OP-1 field is available now for MSRP £1,999 and is also orderable from Thomann.
