Teenage Engineering OP-Z demo (Aquifex)

Published on Dec 2, 2019 SynthAddict

"I finally got around to making some sort of simple Teenage Engineering OP-Z demo, all programmed/sequenced on the OP-Z (internal FX added to each track) and mixed down live to a stereo recorder and replacing the camera's crappy audio track - no mastering, and some mistakes. :-)

The video shows a tiny bit of the amazing power of this little gray "chocolate bar" gadget.

Here I'm using mute groups to add and remove sequencer parts and realtime performance FX (like the Pocket Operators) like a sort of DJ approach.

More fun stuff to come...

Features not used: step components (the real secret weapon), internal FX tracks or the mastering track, tape FX (like the OP-1), pitch bender, or the installed OPLab connectivity module (in photo - syncs pocket operators, MIDI gear, and modular CV/gate).
This little guy does a lot!

A few extra crazy features of the OP-Z involve running DMX lights and Unity engine graphics from the sequencer (both have their own channels). DMX runs over USB and the Unity channel controls Unity graphics/animation or photos/FX via Bluetooth with files on an iPhone/iPad which can be hooked to a projector for live performance. A true all-in-one solution for some people.

And a MATRIXSYNTH card in the pic. :)
