Vco123's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Sympathetic but ultimately useless ..."

Teenage Engineering OP-1
Small keyboard and knobs to look cheap but very sturdy and comfortable to touch.
Limited connectivity.
Sufficient polyphony.
Bank of techno / electro oriented sound.

UTILIZATION

The ergonomics are exemplary, with the multifunction display in superb graphics.
A special mention for different types of innovative and thoughtful sequencers, real time recorder, mixing tracks

SOUNDS

The low point of the machine
The possibilities grate and sound synthesis prove quite vast and innovative, but it rarely gets musical sounds balanced.
Banks factory sounds - music oriented - electro can have fun at first but soon get tired of even the sounds of techno fan I am.
Any K2000 used 500 euros will be 10 times better, and the size of the RAM was easily allowed to house these sounds in an OP-1.
The prize will go to the sounds of drums, I have not found a single kit actually usable! The hi-hat is too strong and too much in the mids, not enough bass kicks in, snares ... not clear enough. all sounds like a soup stuck in the midrange

OVERALL OPINION

One can only applaud the concept, innovation side synthesis and sequencing, robustness and intuitive interface.

However, side tone, it quickly becomes disillusioned. 850E to nine, it is expensive.

It's a pity it would have been technically possible for the designers to propose OP1 with much better sound factory without it costing them more. A little more programming or import sounds from the "brands" ...

OVERALL OPINION

It is a toy 800 euros, it already sets the tone.
This machine is designed for young trendy hype, stylish and rich can be a million but has not everyman or pros elsewhere.

Is still trying to make us believe that the lambda is nomadic musician the point of sacrificing quality of manufacture, use and sounds to gain portability.
We all know that it is wrong in 95 percent of cases know.

It is a box with a little cheapos rickety buttons with sounds of another age organized easier.
It is a quick limited 3:00 and I regretted remettai the package in its box to return it pronto and buy me real machines.
The synth part is insipid and limited, as an old imitation synthetic fm.
I have a pixel that was grilled unpacking to top it off.
The only highlight of this machine is its sympathy capital by its unique design and the multitude of function, but these functions are very limited or unusable and likeability only works when you're not the one who put 800 euros that.

It's funny but not enough for all levels.
If it was costing 150 euros I cry genius.
