    Exciting!
    How long must we suffer?
    I know September but y'know it's way off!!!

    Sounds really awesome! Too bad no special OP-1 related features listed.

  • Interesting, I'm waiting for a live demo !
  • iam so glad that this is coming from TE. it's huge in terms of possibilities. different tape machines etc. 

    september sounds awesome to get the cash in the right direction. it has a plastic/fibre housing and i hope it goes for 299. 
  • iam so stoked. this App and the photo roll features. if i read correct you're able to put 140 modulation combination on one step. 
  • It's a pity that they've succeeded in making the video part seemingly attractive to non-coders but limited only to ios users.
    It would be cool if they could develop a pc software working via usb but it's unlikely.
    Nonetheless, the sequencer part looks great.
    Hopefully, they'll use sturdier jacks connectors than those on the op-1.
  • Heh. I alluded to this offloading of screen and CPU a few months ago. But from what had been previously revealed, it seemed logical where the "missing" pieces would come from and the value of omitting them in the first place.

  • I'm loving the features. I'm fearing the price.

    The screen is one of the big expenses on other machines. I have a feeling the Z will be quite reasonably priced.
  • I was worried when I didn't see a 3.5mm in jack. But then I saw that the 3.5mm jack on it is TRRS, so just need a cable to get audio in, it would seem. Also no mention of what the USB jack means for "charging and control." Have they finally delivered a USB Host, or is that the same type of "control" you get with the OP-1? Overall looks exciting. But hard to tell how deep it is in terms of sounds -- looks very deep for sequencing.
  • Are the 16 tracks hard-wired to the instruments and outputs they list? 

    instrument tracks
    16 individual and independent synthesis, sampler and control tracks.

    kick
    snare
    percussion
    sampler
    bass
    lead
    arpeggio
    chords
    FX slot 1
    FX slot 2
    tape
    mixer
    midi
    cv & trig
    light
    motion
  • look at the modulation specs! i think it gets deep. 

    ...btw the outputs on the top left haven't been declared at all....wonder what a pattern out can do?
  • Price is the big issue for me too. Will they announce it at namm?
  • "160 user programmable patterns, endless patterns chaining"
    with the ability to store multiple songs ?

    screen, amoled included, is dirt cheap compared to designing and building the software for the instrument, UI/workflow especially. same on the OP1.
  • My expectations: 600-800$. Sorry guys, seems to be worth it (and fair though).

    ok. have to sleep a long time..

    I really like that there's a good timeline to avoid over-GASing. Plus setting aside specific gear money rather than the gear-overflow funding that I'm always skimming dry. 
  • 32 weeks...

    So that could be £15 a week if it's round about £500. Hmm, it could be done. Do I have the self control.
  • I think the thing that excites me about this new product is the fact that it is controlled by sequencers which means that it will be more of a live performance and jamming instrument than the OP-1 which made you render everything to tape and only let you control one instrument at a time.
  • "Release: September 2017"

    Only roughly 225 more sleepy-sleeps until OP-Z. 
  • Still seems like a cool friend for my OP-1 B)
  • I'm excited! But I doubt we'll hear much on price until it's closer to the release date. I've long wanted a 'pocket monomachine' (something sequence/automation/modulation heavy). This looks quite appealing.

    Indeed.
    They are said to be advanced and, what really interests me, "multispeed" !!!
  • didn't they at one point mention that they were trying to hit a $300 price point?

  • My impression is that it is 16 tracks directly linked to the listed tracks. If you look at the row of 16 buttons, there are symbols for all of those there. I wouldn't think that you can set 16 tracks of all drums, as that would involve some button presses that might not be as straightforward without a screen.

    And those things on the top -- they looked like jacks last year, but now they look like they might be buttons. As in, you choose what mode you are in using those buttons. That conclusion is based on the other jack being labeled with "out" and that (unless they use old-school PAL/NTSC), I wouldn't think they would output video via an audio style jack.

    Pretty sure it has a mini-HDMI out, but could be wrong. I thought I read that about it at some point last year.
  • @jjbbllkk Yeah that's how it seemed last year. I was going based off of it being not listed in the docs where other connectors are listed. So maybe they just don't want to commit to some of those details yet and the one they are showing at NAMM is still very much a prototype. Excited to see some video interviews from NAMM.

    Where is everyone getting this $299 price tag from? I haven't seen anything ?
