Don't even think about it...Buy it!
MarkyL, 15.08.2014
Just know what you're getting yourself into first: A fantastic little synth, well, synths, with keys, usable solo or with others, a four track recorder, an amazing sampling drum machine and f.x. All of this in a box the size of a small, portable, pc keyboard, housing a great display, a speaker and keyboard. Oh, if you want something with the made in China feel ,forget this, it's solid and feels like a piece of military technology, able to go into the field. Actually, it feels like its from another world, or at least the future! I just wish I hadn't waited..also, a great controller for a computer DAW and a great community of users out there too.

Op1 synth/sampler
rapoon, 29.04.2018
This little Synth/sampler is quite expensive and so isn't an impulse buy.
However I believe it is worth the money as it does so much and is unlike any other sampler on the market. There is real depth to the functions and it sounds great..although the onboard speaker could be a bit better as it distorts slightly at highish volumes. There is no distortion on the headphone/line out so it's not a big problem. I have used this little beauty lot and still find it inspiring.

OP1 never used in a track so far
flyweight, 22.10.2019
The OP1 is a bit disappointing. The controls are in steps so any sound manipulation sounds stepped.
The sounds are 8 bit so do not expect any dynamics.
It is possible to create songs me this but for me its a bit of a toy and I am still trying to get friends with it.

It is however the coolest portable sketch book for making beats.

Now after 2 years I finally got intimate with the OP1 and I love it.
Best portable studio ever. Take an OP1, guitar and a beer and enjoy outside :)

The OP-1 changed my life
iwasjohn , 13.11.2019
There's not really a lot to say here, and yet, so much.
The OP-1 completely made me reinvent the way I think about making music. Nowadays I work 90% on it, on the go, instead of being stuck on a studio... The freedom it gives you is unparalleled. This is not a sampler, a synth, a drum machine. This is the OP-1. It's on a category of it's own, and it's completely unrivalled.
Is it a lot of money? Yes it is. But it's also, by far, the best investment I've ever done in my life.
Love this thing. Teenage Engineering created a classic here.
