    Product Description

    Teenage Engineering have done it again. They blew away the synth world with the OP-1 and they went back to the drawing board to make the next coolest piece of kit - the OP-Z.

    The forward-thinking company have a way with designing small, intuitive synths. But don't be fooled into thinking this is just a toy. It's packed with a serious amount of groundbreaking features for home music makers and professionals alike.

    Key features

    • NEW: Now supports sampling via built-in mic, headset, or via USB
    • NEW: OP-Z also acts as 2-channel audio I/O via USB
    • Advanced 16-track synthesizer and sequencer
    • Completely portable with next-gen rechargeable battery and built-in mic
    • Independent length and speed for each sequencer track
    • Supports audio, MIDI, and Trig Track sequencing

    • Includes USB C to USB A cable for charging and control


    Under the Playstation-esque casing is an advanced multi speed 16-step sequencer. There are endless possibilities thanks to 160 programmable patterns. The new step components features allows for per-cycle changes, note variation, micro-sequencing, re-triggering and more, resulting in 140 ways to alter one step. Delays, filters, tremolo and reverbs also provide loads of experimentation.

    Sequences can be set to 1/16th of standard speed. Teenage Engineering also introduced a 'catch-up' that forces a track to exit at a certain point to stay in sync.

    On top of all this is two accessible octaves, 51 mechanical keys and a pressure sensitive pitch bend. Four enclosed tapes discreetly record your sequences. These provide another layer of customisation for you to scrub, scratch, wind-up and cause havoc. 

    Bring your own screen

    Use your phone or tablet with the handy compatible app. The OP-Z works completely on its own, but hooking it up to a phone or tablet screen via Bluetooth provides a complete view of your creations and customisation options. 

    Sync your music with photos to make quick and easy music videos based on your productions. You can also create custom graphics, patterns, colour palettes or stop motion videos when you upload artwork of photos to your camera roll or Dropbox.

    3D Integration

    This is the perfect tool for pro developers looking to create game soundtracks. The OP-Z has full compatibility with the Unity game engine. Connect and create a project within Unity, then simply store in Dropbox.

    Very powerful sequencer, synth, light and animation controller. Full of surprises!

    Mr Simeon Farr18th Feb 2021

    Fantastic little synthesizer. Sounds great, looks amazing and great fun to play with. It has quickly become my favourite item that I own. I have a few concerns about its longevity however., The volume knob seems delicate and the back plate rattles a little. I would recommend getting a case to keep it in when travelling.

    Mr. mark Girvan2nd Feb 2020

    Makes the most phenomenal noise, intuitive and genius design. It is expensive but alongside the op-1 there is nothing like it. Fantastic

    Trusted Customer30th Jan 2020

    I don't like the power switch, it seems a little flimsy & feels like it could break. Build quality is generally excellent, power switch aside. Battery life good. I preferred the look & feel of the OP-1 but I am enjoying the things that you can easily accomplish with the OP-Z.
