An introduction to the OP–1

An introduction to the OP–1 / Wallpaper, 2012

So Wallpaper* featured an article on the truly awesome Teenage Engineering OP–1 synthesiser last month, and as part of the iPad edition extras, I got to make some films explaining how the thing works.

The tune is a little cheesy and basic, but I hope it gives an introduction as to how easy and quick it is to make music on this great device. I picked it up – with zero prior knowledge of synths – and put together some fun music in no time at all.

Read the article here. Buy the OP–1 here.
