Sequencing the Teenage Engineering OP-1 with the Empress Zoia: Time Travel Synthesis

Published on May 8, 2020 Patchwerks Seattle

"In this video the Empress Zoia is sequencing the Teenage Engineering OP-1 and than processing the audio to add the Empress's dreamy reverb. Using two sequencing channels with with different clock time divisions the sequence feels random but also in sync. During the video we explore several synth engines and some custom presets made by Matthew Piecora (aka EZBOT)

From Teenage Engineering:

OP-1 is the all-in-one portable synthesizer, sampler and controller. with additional features like a built-in FM radio and an assignable G-force sensor for motion controlled effects, there is quite nothing like it. Its modular architecture enables endless sound possibilities without making the workflow complicated or distracting. The compact design and real physical interface makes it inspiring to create music, no matter who you are or how experienced you are.

From Empress Zoia:

The ZOIA is basically a modular synthesizer in pedal form. Instead of being a delay effect or tremolo, the ZOIA provides the modules necessary to build a delay or tremolo from the ground up. But since you're the one building it, you can make it do whatever you want. With the ZOIA you can build your own custom effects, synthesizers, midi controllers, and virtual pedal boards. And to make life a little easier, we've created modules for all your standard guitar effects. So for instance, if you want a phaser, you can just plop down a phaser. You don't have to break out the textbooks to learn that they're built out of all-pass filters. (Of course, if you're a nerd like us, you can use the ZOIA to build them out of all-pass filters).
