to the user interface or resulting in
over-clustered screens. your OP-1 will always be intuitive and simple

OP-1 accessory kit
includes fm antenna, crank, bender and brick shafts.
3.5 mm plug-in radio antenna for better signal
reception when indoor or in remote areas.
mount the crank accessory on OP-1‘s blue knob and press shift + rec. your OP-1 is now in “hand-crank-recording mode”. use the crank to create some real vintage old skool recordings. it’s also possible to crank counter clockwise, to record backwards. all in realtime. the crank also lets you use the endless sequencer as a hand cranked music box! just enter the notes and crank the crank! the crank LFO lets you crank any parameter.
bender mounts on the orange knob and comes with a rubberband that is attached around the blue knob for elasticity. by selecting the bender in the LFO browser, you may bend any parameter you like. everything from pitch to filter or syntesizer parameters.
brick shafts are LEGO® compatible shafts that you put on any of the knobs. now you may mount any lego part. why not put on a big lego rubber wheel for that extra grip? or build your own motor driven programmable LFO together with LEGO® MINDSTORMS? the brick shaft comes in four colors and lets you experiment with any parameter. it supports any idea you may have that involves LEGO® bricks.
