Inspiring device
Monotron, 19.06.2019
Really cool little device, very inspiring and addictive.

The factory sounds on the drums tracks are well designed, the synths are nice. They are many functions that allow to experiment and make patterns unpredictable (if you want to).
On top of that you have two tracks to control lights and visual! (and that is a first).
And last but not least awesome sequencer!

Pros:
-Super small and battery power, so you can bring it anywhere
-Inspiring
-Make music and control visual and lights with one machine
-It sounds very good: synths/effects/drums
-The machine feels good when touching it

Cons:
-Only two parameters can be tweaked on the synths track (in order to design the sound)
-Only 6 notes polyphony to sequence midi (on module track without module)
-Only 4 notes polyphony on chord track
-You cannot apply step components on the module track (without the module)
-Actual firmware has bugs: machine turns off, latency when switching projects (not great for live situation)
-Quality build: some parts like the rotaries or the feet seem very fragile. (rubber getting destroyed or rotaries getting out)

Overall it's a great mobile device and the firmware is still young so hopefully all bugs will be fixed.

The fact that there is no screen isn't a problem. I got used to it within a day and it really boosted my workflow and inspiration.

If you want a portable device two experiment with and record you ideas fast and be able to control visual and lights buy it!

Amazing instrument! Lots of menu layers but highly intuitive.
Christi R , 18.12.2018
When you first open it you worry it will be difficult to learn how to use this because of it being so menu-driven but the quick-start guide and overlays are so intuitive that you learn the interface within 20 minutes.

I've been using this to write music while on planes and trains and to demo out new ideas worked on in the rehearsal room too.

One small issue I've noticed (and read online along with the OP-1) is that in some situations you get a loud buzzing noise if the instrument is charging via USB on a computer/laptop that is also being used to record the OP-Z from the line-out. (Only if it is the same laptop/computer). This is because it is non-isolated and creates a ground loop. I've seen isolators that can fix this problem so should be OK (and if you don't have it plugged in to charge it is no problem). For this reason I haven't marked down the OP-Z in my star rating as it is a work-around-able issue.

Overall it is incredible. Certainly very expensive but you can tell a lot of that cost is for the large amount of time spent on research and development from Teenage Engineering.
