From Teenage Engineering:

OP–Z is an advanced fully portable 16-track sequencer and synthesizer, with a range of both sample based and synthesis based sounds. it's the world's first stand-alone sequencer of its kind, that lets you sequence music, visuals, lights and more.

OP–Z can be used completely stand alone and comes with an intuitive led lit interface. when you want next level real time visual feedback, use the screen you already have in your pocket.

Hardware features include a usb-c host and device, wireless communication over ble, 4-pin 3.5 mm stereo headphone and line-out, accelerometer, user replaceable battery and built-in microphone.

Component Based Step Sequencing:
One of the basic concepts of the OP–Z is it's ability to run each track totally independent from one another. tracks can run at various speeds, have different lengths and loop points. separate tracks can even jump-cut back and forth irregularly and randomly if you want. using this you can make a short sequence sound more or less different each time it is repeated in your composition.

A composition is divided into tracks and each track is built from sequencer steps – just as you are used to, but on top of that we have added something truly unique we call step components that adds an extra dimension of instructions for each step. this new tool makes composing a track much more dynamic, deep and rich – a long needed addition to traditional sequencing.

The tracks on the OP–Z is polymetric. meaning that each track has dynamic track length from 1 up to 144 steps. making it possible to work in high or low track resolution. you can choose to go completely off-grid or stay 100% quantized. thanks to the OP–Z real time melodic analysis you can at any time automatically transpose whole sequences in different scales across six octaves.

We reserve the right to charge a restocking fee based on the return condition. Some items we just can’t take back for returns, due to a one time function like strings or drums heads and other times it’s not sanitary to do so with microphones or harmonicas.
