Synthesizer time. got my hands on a Teenage Engineering OP-1 synth today c/o Matthew Jewkes. For something so small and seemingly novel, it packs a pretty beefy sound and a ton of features, among them an AM radio, midi functionality and drum machine. slickly designed and incredibly intuitive, you can switch between the synth and drum banks with one button and every sound you synthesize, as well as your tape decks and sequencers, are visualized on the LED display. recording and cutting is a breeze. doesn’t come cheap, though - it retails at about 850 + shipping from Sweden. still, it’s a pretty freaking awesome instrument.
