Hi! Let's walk through the technique I used to record the Hewwop1 EP, which i released recently. Hope it will be useful for you pals. P.S. Share your techniques and tips in comments too :)

Last week I covered the basics of using the OP-1 but what happens if you want to use some external midi gear alongside this powerful all in one synth? Well, you need a USB Midi Host and in this video I break down how to use the Midiplus USB Midi Host with the Teenage Engineering OP-1 so you can control external 5-pin midi gear...

I wanted to try my hand at creating something using samples, but without using any of the sequencers or tape on the OP-1. I found if you trim the samples so that the downbeats are all on the white keys and the upbeats are all on the black keys, it makes it a lot easier to keep track of where you are in the measure and have more freedom while messing around.

Hey pals! I’m currently weighing up the strengths and weaknesses of using an op-1 (probably together with an OP-Z) to complement my 6 piece bands live performance or using Ableton with some MIDI controllers and a sound card in a laptop etc. I’m wanting to lean towards the op-1 if possible because although I have all the gear to do either one, I’d like to be limiting my options...

Hi! I’m new to the game and just got myself an op-1. I’ve been using the finger sequencer in drum mode which sounds great on external speaker and through my headphones but whenever i record the sequence and upload the tape on logics, a lot of the low end is gone and it sounds like a hi hat crash at the end of each beat
