Teenage Engineering OP-1 Drum Kit Building by CUCKOO

CUCKOO seems to have mastered the Teenage Engineering OP-1 and I think his tips on the device can be translated using any analog or virtual synth.  This is good information for fellow beatmakers out there.  I thought this would inspire peeps in the Boom Bap field to push the envelope with drums.  If any thing, this video made me more interested in the OP-1 and hopefully sometime in the future I will get a chance to review one.    The OP-1 is a powerful tool and it looks cool also. I’ve always wanted to try one but never had a chance. The device looks like something Apple would put out plus it will match your iMac computer if you have one. Teenage Engineering are releasing a new OS update soon for the OP-1 so check for that. Also they have a job opening at Teenage Engineering for my fellow beatmakers in Sweden. Check out more about the OP-1 below.

Synthesizer and controller

8 built-in synthesizer engines, multiple effects and LFO’s. And some really unique sequencers ready to explore. Connect it to your computer and control your DAW with the common play, stop, rec, forward and rewind. Use the 4 rotary encoders and 8 x 2 dedicated quick keys for fast selections.

Built in 4-track tape

Record everything on the built in 4-track tape. Match the tape speed to the sequencer clock for some really nice overdubbing with changing pitch. Change tapespeed while recording, or even record backwards in realtime. Switch to the 4 channel mixer and add som texture with the built in EQ and Drive.

Teenage Engineering OP-1
All in one portable

OP-1 is the all-in-one portable Synthesizer, Sampler and Controller. With additional features like the FM Radio and an assignable G-Force sensor for motion controlled effects. With OP-1’s built-in Tape feature you are able to record everything you do on to the 4 tracks, with overdubbing, reverse recording

Price $849 US
