The Next Generation of Portable Instruments
The OP-Z is an advanced, fully portable 16-track sequencer and synthesizer, with a range of sample and synth-based sounds, letting you sequence music, visuals, lights & more.
The accelerometer activated microphone turns on and records when the OP-Z is lifted, allowing you to add your own vocal effects to your set, wherever you go.
The OP-Z is loaded with:
- 16 sample packs, each with 24 samples
- 8 synthesis based sound engines
- 2 separate FX-buses across all instrument tracks
- 14 types of step components
- iOS & Android Compatibility
The original OP-Z module, the Oplab, allows you to have the power & flexibility of the OP-Z available to any other music equipment. Once mounted to your OP-Z, use it to connect to other musical equipment using standard CV & gate.
The OP-Z was built with the intention of attaching modules. Easily insert your module to the back of the OP-Z and get tons of additional features, via the Oplab which allows you to attach the OP-Z to other instruments, or the Rumble which lets you feel the beat.
The newest hardware expansion module, the Rumble is a built-in haptic subwoofer, using high-def vibrotactile feedback and psychoacoustic technology that allows you to actually feel your music.

Seriously, its tiny. Unnecessarily tiny. Try pressing three adjacent notes at once. Its difficult! I could understand if they were trying to meet some standard size like a carry-on bag for an airplane. But shaving an inch or two off the size of the OP1 just didn't seem necessary and it makes it awkward to play.
As a loyal owner of the original OP1, I found it has little in common with the new OPZ. They took out the screen which made the OP1 so charming and fun. Remember the cow?, the boxer and the monkeys?, the tape deck where you could cut and splice tape? All gone. Sure the OPZ has an iOS app that you can install for free on your $1,000 iPhone. Then you can see your LFO settings and sequencer steps. Now try balancing the OPZ and an iPhone on your lap during a flight. Now you got two devices to keep charged. On the other hand you actually don't need a screen with the OPZ. Just memorize where everything is!
If the OP1 made you feel like a kid chasing butterflies in the park, the OPZ will make you feel like a 40 something programmer in a fluorescent cubicle. So many times I poured out my heart into the OP1 and it opened its arms to me with no questions asked. But now if you got a chill vibe circling your soul, well stop everything... sit down in your cubicle and start cutting your emotions into 16 discrete steps, chains, patterns, etc... Sorry to be harsh. I guess I'm just not used to the sequencer workflow. The OPZ does indeed give you powerful sequencing capabilities and with its step components and punch in effects you could sit there all day just randomly punching them in. You'll be shown all kinds of random melodies and beats you might never think of.
I wish they wouldn't call it a synthesizer. Its synth capabilities are limited compared to the OP1. The OP1 has 10 synth engines. Its Dsynth engine alone is far more capable of sound design than anything in the OPZ. I tried to get the new strings engine to sound like just a plain ole guitar but couldn't make it happen.
Don't call it 16 tracks either. Only 8 of those tracks let you lay down instruments. The other tracks are for DMX control and other very cool stuff. (just not music). Oh and if you want to put kick drums on track 1 with a delay effect, then put hi-hats on track 2 with a slightly different delay, can't do that. You could on the OP1.
A few things the OP1 can do that the OPZ can't
- record your voice onto a track
- sample from the built-in radio!
- edit start and end points of a sample
- dedicated effect for each instrument
- bounce your song to a built-in two-sided 'album'
- cut and splice tape
There's definitely tons of new things the OPZ can do. It's just significantly different from the OP1.
When you release a successor to a successful product, you kinda expect the same features from the original product plus improvements. All they had to do was upgrade the DSP, memory, add some more tracks and I would have been over the moon. It's more accurate to call it an advanced Pocket Operator. But I'm hoping that new software updates will make it feel more like the OP1.
There are also 8 sequenceable non-audio tracks: you can actually sequence tape effects, or key changes and transpositions (using the "master" track).
The synth engines are actually pretty good -- there are a couple different ones, and you can patch in an LFO and various effects.
Also, the device is truly tiny, about the size of a long candy bar. I carry it around my my backpack with a good pair of earbuds.
You'll want an iOS device or Mac of some type, since the app gives you a screen and significantly reduces the learning curve.
The unit I received had sticky pots (the green and blue pots would stick in the same place on each rotation) and a pretty significant bend across the whole thing that prevented it from lying flat on a table. Other users have encountered double trigger issues, but mine didn't seem to have that problem in the short time I had it. I ended up returning it because it was simply too expensive to have such low quality. I'll check it out again in a year or so after TE has worked out the bugs.
I still used the device and it’s still awesome, but I can’t justify spending $600+ for an item that is supposed to be portable and able to bring around. It’s somewhat disappointing, but it’s still a good item if it wasn’t defective

Por lo demás el diseño y funcionalidad de este aparato es asombroso, lo volvería a comprar si garantizaran que viene doblado ni se doblará con el uso.
