Teenage Engineering OP-1 Synthesizer is also a USB audio interface, Now

 

As part of their 10 year anniversary celebration of their OP-1 synthesizer, Teenage Engineering has released a free update that adds streaming audio over USB.

 

Firmware update brings functionality to OP-1 that many would not expect to be possible.  As with all previous updates, this is a free one, and it adds some potentially useful functionality.

 

Specifically, the OP-1 is now capable of streaming over USB. Or, to put it another way, it can now function as a USB audio interface.

 

So, not only can you sample and record to the OP-1 directly from any USB audio host, but you can also send audio from the OP-1 into your PC or Mac DAW.

 

There are a couple of other tweaks, as well – external tempo sync stability has been improved and when tape is armed and OP-1 receives a play command, recording now starts.

 

OP-1 OS 243 release highlights:

 

  • USB audio device in & out.
  • External tempo sync stability improved.
  • When tape is armed and OP-1 receives a play command, recording now starts.

 

The firmware update is compatible with all versions of the OP-1, and you can free download it from the Teenage Engineering website.
