New OS for the OP-1 is out, with a drum synth, a new sequencer, more external MIDI control and a choplifter game! Smile

Posted Image, might have been reduced in size. Click Image to view fullscreen.

Going to try this out first thing when I get home this evening - I love this thing.

It's nice to see that TE have now got a regular supply of OP-1's

I look forward to seeing some demos of the update.

Played a bit with the new finger sequencer and the drumsynth. Trying to find out how to start the helicopter game...

Perhaps you are supposed to throw the op-1 out of the window? Wink

I opened a window, but instead of throwing the op1 at it, I entered a search word at the top and it guided me to an instruction on how to start the game. Cheating, I know... Wink

Thanks! Smile

I should point out that that tune was played and mixed completely on the OP-1 - no computer or other instrument involved at all.

Yes. Nice tune Stefan! Very Happy

The big question is though, do you prefer to work/make music on the OP-1 or the iPad?

Hm currently I'd have to say the OP-1, but I'm always enchanted by the latest stuff I've gotten. On iThings I mostly use Nanostudio (I don't find much use for the performance-oriented apps), and the harsher sounds in the OP-1 appeal more to me. The iPad works for feeding sound into the OP-1 or the Octatrack though, I'll probably do more of that at some point.

There's a new OS out! New features include a filter, integration with Ableton Live (turn the OP-1 into a control surface), and some new LFOs that are targeted towards the crazy new cranks that you can buy from TE. They're also selling a thing for attaching Lego Mindstorm stuff to the rotary encoders!

Posted Image, might have been reduced in size. Click Image to view fullscreen.

I've tried out the filter, and does a fair job. It's one monophonic filter that works with the polyphonic mix from synths or drums. It has an envelope that triggers when you play notes.

I also tried out the control surface quickly. As usual, TE refuses to document the stuff they hand out, but it seems to do the job from what you'd expect, looking at OP-1. Note keys switch tracks, you can arm, ,mute etc, and the transport controls map onto Live's.

You can use the crank LFO without the cranks. Crazy stuff.

Lol at least you gave the positive thinking a try. Wink

I just see everything as a bonus. If you're missing filters in the synth I can see your point though.

The introduction of the OP-1 accessories and a new OS update nearly coincides with my return from vacation in Geneva.

The plastic add-ons sound like low-cost, yet fun "enhancements" to the OP-1 hardware interface. A real case is a much-needed accessory - I bought my OP-1 used and its "environmentally-friendly" box has quite a bit of wear on it.

I notice on the Muff Wiggler forum, people are buying the accessories from AC Gears, whose prices are higher than the ones at the Teenage Engineering store, but they seem to be people who live in NYC and thus find it more convenient to pick up these new products at a physical store than wait for an order to arrive from TE.

I also notice the Accessory Super Kit at the TE store costs more than the total price of the accessories would be if bought separately. Smile

Maybe you can pay for a crank with a Moog guitar or something. Wink

Laughing

I have no doubt Andy can get at least the equivalent of $2000 US for his Moog Guitar. That will buy plenty of $9 OP-1 Cranks.

I wasn't even aware the OP-1 had no filter before. Laughing

I got it to compose electronic music while riding the train or chillin' on my couch.

I'm thinking about getting a crank, actually! The music box trick looked interesting.

I think the cranks cheapen the look of the OP-1. Makes it look more like a set of pots and pans from the Sylvanian's children's toy set. Confused

I have always been more about function than appearance - whether a feature makes a product look "ugly" is irrelevant to me compared to whether the new feature will help me to achieve a desirable result.

Apologies to the person I'm stealing this quote from, which was posted to the MW forum:

Quote:

The knobs on the OP-1 are endless, so the "crank" can be used to turn a knob without stopping (as opposed to using your fingers, where you have to stop turning the knob for a short amount of time in order to turn back your hand and then continue to turn the knob).

Where is such a thing useful or desirable? In the video, they show that you can move the endless sequencer continuously by using the crank, but in a more or less steady way, having a similar effect as using a music box. Also, you'll be able to use the crank to move the tape continuously, while playing back or recording. You can then record at a more or less steady tape speed, having interesting results on the playback, for example. I think that it's a quite interesting feature.

Okay. It makes sense now why they would have made these parts. But they still feel/look like some kind of kookie afterthought. Smile
