’might just be the most anticipated synthesizer
in the history of mankind.’
’it's slick, occasionally innovative and, above all, uncluttered. there's a real feeling of restraint, of limiting the tweakable parameters only to the essentials so that you're never diverted from what matters — making music’
–SOUND ON SOUND
’this is simply great’

’endless enjoyment out of this machine’
’it’s been a long time since i’ve seen something as interesting, flexible and creative as this. after my tour in sweden, the whole team came back-stage and we jammed together.
i chose this synth to show that any instrument, from no matter what time, can have a completely timeless value. i’m sure that musicians will still be using the OP-1 in 50 years.
