Our friends at Teenage Engineering were back at NAMM, with the latest iterations of the OP-1 and OpLab.
The little screen on the OP-1 continues to delight, with one of the most unique interfaces from a non touch screen. They added a new module that allows one to use the device as an Etch-A-Sketch and draw out pitch contours. It even includes the shake-to-erase gesture. The little cranks that go on top of the knobs are also new.
The OpLab, including some branded sensors, seems to finally be ready for prime time.
The OpLab does allow one to use alternative sensors, and outputs control voltage suitable for analog modular synths in addition to controlling the OP-1.
