Your favorite gear to pair up with the OP-1?

Hey yall!

The OP-1 is own to be a more standalone workstation but I was wondering what are some of your favorite gear that you like to pair up with the OP-1, and why? I'm looking for some ideas.

thank you!

  • My MV8800, as it is a stereo sampler... to be honest though the OP does work best for me when on its own, as you mention. Just so much to explore on it as it stands - throwing yet more variables into the mix results in options paralysis, for me anyway!
  • For me a portable field recorder is invaluable. I often record samples into the op1 from what I’ve collected and I also use it to jam back out to so I’m not limited to the record players duration limit. Organelle paired with it is great fit, I mainly use fx patches on it. iPad apps like fugue machine via an oplab are good fun too.
  • Man- two bits of gear is amazing when one is OP-1.
    It's been said that Octatrack and op-1 ends all gas. It is true they work so well firing at each other and is ultimate.
    Another Op 1 is my usual answer to a 2nd synth companion and yes that's a total buzz.Double heaven, but since it's shot up in price it's not as viable.
    So anything with a click sync is good.Volcas(FM or keys),monotribe and ofcourse pocket operators!
  • Yea, the portability aspect of the synth is key for me. I'm just thinking that maybe i could add something else to it Maybe a better mic?

    the Volca keys do seem tempting, 
  • I love recording synth notes, drum beats, and everything in between to a cassette player then bouncing things back for some tape mojo. Sometimes i'll bounce back and forth adding layers of FX until the original source is obliterated!

    ditto, octatrack or really any sampler really brings the op1 to life imo
  • MPC Live. I bounce samples back and forth between the two and then finally end up with the samples and loops on the MPC Live and melodic of solo instrumentation on the OP-1. Both travel well but battery and size are much nicer with OP-1.

  • sonically, the strymon elCapistan is a match made in heaven

  • Favourite Op1 buddies -

    IPad (usually running Quantum>OP1 and OP1>Looperverse).
    Octatrack.
    Dictaphone.

  • I love it with my MPC touch as the command center and the OP1 is free to just be an instrument. Also OP1 with my guitar is a infinity well.
