OP-Z

edited May 2016 in OP-Z
Video synth? At their gig last year TE were doing live video from the stage. At least the OP-Z is a controller for this, if not also a generator of content?

  • Those holes at the top (in the teaser) seems like it would be for a speaker. Maybe some type of a mixer? Looks like a USB is involved? Tough to say. Definitely exciting! 
  • Exciting! Yes, I can imagine a TE style mixer / arranger like tape on steroids. Can't wait to see what it is!
  • I think the holes look more like the OP-1 microphone?

    I'd be very excited if it was the OP-1 successor, but I, too, think it won't be. Tape on steroids is a really exciting proposition, though.

    So when's the NDA expiring? Cuckoo help us :D 

    EDIT: "Tune in on thursday at 10.00 L.A. time for a first batch of information"

    EDIT EDIT: OMG it's 10am HERE and I'm really damn far from L.A.!!
  • Yikes, we have almost 10 hours to wait!
  • I think the holes look more like the OP-1 microphone?

    Great point. 
  • I selfishly hope it's not a replacement for the OP-1 (I've just bought an iPad Pro 128, so I'm skint!).

    Will be watching this closely though - Anything new from TE is exciting :)


  • Now, is that zee or zed?
  • Waiting patiently for announcements from Teenage Engineering to see if there's any game changers on the OP-1 front. 
    I have no interest in the PO's.

    If nothing changes on the OP-1 front then it may be bye bye.


  • My vote is that it's a box that allows you to have all the POs connected to OP-1, with some sort of mixing capabilities for handling the PO signals.
  • ^ thats what I'm thinking it is too @piotr
  • Same here

    if this is a mixer, i really hope for some stereo recording skills with extreme panning on the op-1. That ould make my op-1 a real universal instrument recorder.

  • fuck me 
  • My hope of all hopes would be that it makes the OP-1 a lot more of a live performance instrument, somehow expanded memory and allowed backup and renaming of presets, tapes and albums. If it had mid in/out etc to negate the need for a OP-Lab or other USB Host that would be amazing too.

    Only have a few hours left to find out I guess .....
  • @spacetravelmadeeasy +1! exactly that! would be awesome!
  • April is the timetable for the new OS, 
    just enough time for all the Operator-1 forum members to get a OP-Z 

    whatever it is......
  • Surely they'll announce what's coming on the new OS at NAMM.

    Wow! What's wrong with the OP as is that you'd get rid of it? I'm looking forward to the update, but have been steady loving the OP since I got one of the first batch! It's a gift that keeps on giving!

  • @Virtual_Flannel 

    I dunno its a fun piece of kit for random jams and creating silly sounds and have also used it for some "work" work to create sounds for games but I don't use it in terms of making finished polished music.

    I'm hoping that something from TE will make me change my mind. :P



  • So April is when the OP1 update arrives, cool. Hoping that OPZ is either a tape type thing or something that works with OP1. New POs look cool.
  • Hey! Those holes are not like the microphone but like the level indicator. Which could indicate that the OP-Z is a stereo device? And that symbol on the key.. thats a "Lift from tape" symbol isn´t it? Sorry for sort of double posting this here and in the NAMM thread, but I am suddenly super excited :D
  • Sloman image post
  • Or is the orientation of that symbol more like |-> (with an arrow pointing right, rather than up), @slomen?
  • is this an USB stick?
  • Might be @yoof but OP-1 has its name written on the side. If the OP-Z also has the name on the side, then its a up arrow ;)
  • It's clearly an extension of the OP-1 that you perhaps plug into the op directly or it't might be some sort of USB/bluetooth device for connecting the op to perhaps an ipad for an ios app? I'm hoping IT adds more memory and the ability to pick and choose what synths and effects you'd like your op to have. Anyway...CANT WAIT :)
