Product Description

Please Note: The TX-6 Field Mixer pictured is not included with the OP-1 Field. 

Teenage Engineering's first synth - the OP-1 - initially hit shelves in 2011. Almost overnight, this portable powerhouse developed a more-than justified reputation as an essential piece of gear that any self-respecting producer, sound designer or artist shouldn't be without. Ten years may have passed since its release, yet demand for the OP-1 has remained consistently high. 

Now, with over a decade of firmware updates, engineering ingenuity and advances in technology under their belts, Teenage Engineering return to centre stage with the latest iteration of their cult classic: the OP-1 Field. But what are the main surface-level differences when compared to its predecessor? How does a new field-specific colourway, low aluminium frame, glass screen and 100 exciting new features and functions sound? For a deeper dive, check out some of the key enhancements and additions below!

OP-1, but Better 

It's hard to improve on greatness, but Teenage Engineering have managed it here. Building on the solid design principles of the original, the OP-1 Field is slimmer and lighter than the OP-1, with a lowered aluminium body encasing the floating keyboard. They've even managed to squeeze a dual 2.4 GHz antenna system into the streamlined form factor. 

Other exciting augmentations include Bluetooth MIDI, 32-bit audio, stereo across the entire signal chain, and a new synth engine (Dimension) and reverb effect (Mother). Powerful, accurate, all-encompassing sound is delivered from a new speaker containing a passive driver.  

Sensational Stereo Sample Engine

The OP-1 Field is bolstered further with the addition of a new stereo sample engine. Use dual layer mode to immediatley mix your A and B channels and harness up to 20 seconds of total sampling time. You'll have 160+ minutes of sample storage available too!

Experiment with four completely new recording formats (Vintage 4-track, Porta, Studio 4-track and Disc Mini) - each featuring contrasting graphics and entirely unique sonic signatures.  

The Field System 

Combine the OP-1 Field with the TX-6 Field Mixer and take control of an extremely portable, powerful and professional performance and recording rig. With an upgraded 24-hour battery life (rechargable via USB-C) and flexible connectivity options, take it anywhere and get creative wherever inspiration strikes! Connect with your macOS, iOS or Windows device and get going in an instant.

This is a love-hate piece of gear, but I certainly fall into the 'love' category. It is one of the most inspiring pieces of hardware you can get, it gives you all sorts of tools to create sounds and then makes you commit to decisions in a creative way... I love it. This is a major upgrade over the original OP-1, in terms of sound and extra features. Make sure you upgrade firmware regularly too, as they add new stuff regularly e.g. the vocoder that just turned up. I am going to say that this is excellent value for money, too, as it does so much and inspires even more.

Great peace of kit. Having had the original Op 1 this feels like a much refined instrument. It operates and feels like a premium product. Very pleased with purchase. Having a preference to work away from my laptop / iPad, the op 1 is both fun and inspirational to work on. Having the ability to sit on the sofa or take on work trips, enables me to make music in more places.
