Teenage Engineering are promising new effects, firmware updates, expansion via hardware ports, and more. Media can easily be imported into the system via Dropbox. Yeah, this thing knows if you hold it up to your mouth. Interesting interface, some nice features as a sequencer and groove box and a decent app interface. Dream of owning both, but currently cannot afford either.
As a refresher, the compact synth offers a 16-track sequencer that enables live composition of audio, visuals and lights at the same time. And each component has 10 values and behaviors, essentially meaning that a single step can be altered any one of 140 different ways. It does more than all those past creations combined, though, and the Teenagers are pushing some unique possibilities for visual creation. Step components in three groups allow players to add unique behaviors to each individual and independent track, such as note variation, micro sequencing, parameter changes, direction tweaking and more. The first feature reveals and videos of the final creation are inbound, showing it doing some weird and wonderful things.

You can step or live record. The sequencer is very interesting. 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. Either way, back to the 90s. The goal of this subreddit is to provide a focused community for discussing and sharing music. Op-z looks sweet, and I love the option of using my iPad as a display so cool! But think Unity 3D integration. Release is scheduled for September 2017 so they have plenty of time to get it rocking.
I did hope they might do something a bit snazzier with the box itself, but no, they are obviously committed to the grey. The main focus of the instrument: sequencing, so you can create elaborate patterns of synthesized sounds, as part of a rig or on its own, for on-the-go and studio creation or live performance. Can you create tracks in the same way? They are also happy if the demure size upsets you — they are a funny bunch. . There are several different tape reels with different characters, which allow you to scrub, scratch, wind-up, and mess-up any programming. With its own dedicated track, it is possible to sequence the tape and trigger the in-point, length, and speed.
Sweden's Teenage Engineering — perhaps best known for its and barebones noise makers — has been working on a stand-alone synthesizer and composer you can fit in your inside pocket for a few years now. O-P-Zee for Americans, O-P-Zed for the rest of the world. Teenage Engineering has managed to cram in a two octave keyboard with backlit keys into the 212. And yes, the instrument will work with a laptop as well. There are endless steps, independent track lengths and speeds. And sure, while some of this is more predictable — sample packs of drum sounds, effects like delay and reverb, — some of it is decidedly more left-field. Who knows I could be totally wrong.
They seem to suggest that means animation and video, art and lighting to accompany your live show. It was a box of drums, noises, synths and sequencing combined with a weirdly visual interface running on a computer. It really is a remarkable device. Tons of expandability is planned. Teenage Engineering says this is the first device with that skill set. The microphone is connected to the accelerometer. Even the print on the unit uses a special glow-in-the-dark paint to keep you on point during a performance.
Full details available on the Teenage Engineering. An updated tape feature secretly records everything that is programmed into the sequencer in real time. That situation may ease as the Teenagers ramp up production. The sequencer should allow you to manipulate polygons for animated movement in sync with the music. . . .
