reworked, refined, reborn.

Think of OP–1 field as the natural continuation of its predecessor. updated with the latest technology, improved design and finely tuned with professional musicians, recording artists and sound designers in mind. higher quality in all aspects, from its circuitry to connectivity and flexibility, it's tailor made for professionals in the field.

Stereo Sample Engine

The new stereo sample engine is just one of the features that takes the OP-1 Field to a higher level. With increased sampling time up to 20 seconds and dual layer mode for instant mixing of the A & B channels or via an assigned LFO.

Four New Recording Formats.

Studio 4-track, vintage 4-track, porta and disc mini. Each with their own unique characteristics and graphics. Now with multiple tapes or discs, up to 8 in total.

Velcro Base

Teenage Engineering have added two soft velcro rings on the back for fastening covers and accessories. Perhaps you want to stick your OP–1 field on top of your full size keyboard or slap it on a guitar? use the included adhesive looped back and start experimenting. On the right you'll find an additional passive loudspeaker for hugely improved bass. And for a ’no-more-cold-metal-on-your-lap’ experience, they have encased the aluminum body in a warm, soft touch, hard cover.

Field System

OP–1 Field is the second addition to their new field system. Together with the TX–6 portable mixer you get an incredibly powerful and ultra portable sound recording and performance system. all battery powered, rechargeable via usb-c and with full interconnectivity (midi and high resolution audio) 1:1 compatible with iOS and macOS and windows makes it the most powerful, highest quality, portable system on the market today.
