Building upon the success of the OP-1, the Teenage Engineering OP-Z is a portable all-in-one synthesizer and 16-track multimedia sequencer. The device can not only produce complete music tracks and sound effects, but is also capable of MIDI, CV, & trigger track sequencing, image & 3D graphic sequencing, and DMX light sequencing.

All 16 tracks can run independently, allowing for individual track speed and length. What's more, each step of the sequencer offers component sequencing, which adds variations per cycle, note variations, micro-sequencing, direction, parameter changes, re-triggers, and more. There are 14 different components, and each has 10 values and behavior programs, which totals 140 ways to alter a single step.

All keys are backlit with multicolor LEDs with instant machine feedback, a convenient feature for dark stages and poorly lit environments. Even the print on the unit uses a special glow-in-the-dark paint to keep you on point during a performance. There is no built-in LED screen. Instead, the OP-Z connects to your iOS device and takes advantage of its high-resolution retina display. A free iOS application pairs the two devices and further expands the feature set. Photomatic allows you to capture and arrange photographs into synchronized "stop-motion photography" with effects or import custom graphics and animate them in pace with your music. Media can easily be imported into the system via Dropbox. To eliminate any latency between image and sound, the OP-Z sound engine is ported to run simultaneously on your iOS device, which enables dual domain synthesis.

Teenage Engineering have worked closely with Keijiro Takahashi and the Unity Tokyo Studio to fully integrate the OP-Z with the Unity Game Engine, allowing for stunning 3D graphics that run at full speed on an iPhone or iPad. The included toolset allows you to create your own graphics and 3D animation projects that can be integrated into the OP-Z performance platform.

An updated tape feature secretly records everything that is programmed into the sequencer in real time. With its own dedicated track, it is possible to sequence the tape and trigger the in-point, length, and speed. There are several different tape reels with different characters, which allow you to scrub, scratch, wind-up, and mess-up any programming. The OP-Z ships with a USB charging and control cable.
