Teenage Engineering OP-Z 16-Track Synthesizer with Sequencer


The Teenage Engineering OP-Z 16-Track Synthesizer with Sequencer is an advanced multi-speed 16-track sequencer offering flexibility, and a whole load of synthesizing and sequencing power. The OP-Z provides 16 individual and independent synthesis, sampler, and control tracks, allowing you to create simple and complex sequences with a range of built-in sounds. The OP-Z makes individual track speed and track length possible. Additionally, you have the ability to add unique step behaviors to every one of the 16 steps, a feature Teenage Engineering call 'Step Components', allowing for endless possibilities. With its highly compact, portable design, the Teenage Engineering OP-Z allows you to create some of the most advanced sequences, wherever and whenever. Download the free OP-Z app now to unlock video sequencing.

Endless Sequencing Possibilities

The Teenage Engineering OP-Z provides you with endless sequencing possibilities. It is a completely stand-alone synthesizer and composer providing you with endless sequencing steps, 160 user programmable patterns, and endless pattern chaining. The OP-Z allows for step recording and live recording, with a range of controls for editing your pattern, making it ideal for jamming and live performance.

Introducing Step Components

Step components is a new feature introduced by Teenage Engineering. Step components makes it possible to add unique step behaviors to every one of the 16 steps. The best way to describe this is to think of dual layer sequencing. The first layer is a traditional 16 step-sequencer, whereas the second layer adds variation per cycle, micro-sequencing, direction, note variation, parameter changes, re-triggering, and much more, all on one single step. Adding multiple step variations can create endless possibilities. A handy feature called 'catch up' forces a track to exit at a certain step to stay in sync. All the 14 components have 10 values and behavior programs, resulting in up to 140 ways to alter just one single step.

Image & 3D Graphics Sequencing

By downloading the free OP-Z app on the app store, you have the opportunity to pair your phone and OP-Z together to add several unique features. For example, you can use your phone's camera to take a number of photos, and then arrange them to a beat, essentially creating your own synchronised music video. By adding any artwork or photo to your camera roll or to a Dropbox folder, you can create custom graphics, patterns, colour pallets, or stop motion videos that can be animated in pace with your music.

Take It Anywhere

Thanks to the super compact design, the OP-Z can be taken anywhere with you. It's about half the size of the OP-1, and still packs a huge amount of power. Fit the device into your pocket and create sequences anywhere and everywhere.

Full Unity 3D Integration

Teenage Engineering have worked closely with Keijiro Takahashi and the Unity Tokyo studio to allow the OP-Z to fully integrate with the Unity game engine. By linking the OP-Z with Unity, it allows users to create anything within Unity, build the project, and drop the build to a Dropbox folder.
