Superbooth 2022- Teenage Engineering announces OP-1 Field Portable Sound Studio

Teenage Engineering’s new OP-1 field – “louder, thinner and 100 times better”


At Superbooth 2022: OP-1 Field, a successor to the original OP-1 portable synth, sampler and controller that they say is ‘injected with more than a decade of ideas, refinements and improvements, is one of the most iconic music technology products of the past decade.

The Teenage Engineering OP-1 Field features an updated design with 100 new features and it comes in an anodised aluminium case.  Enhancements include a new low-profile frame with floating keyboard, new field color palette, a high resolution screen with flush glass cover, stereo throughout the whole signal chain, bluetooth midi, 24 hr battery life, multiple tapes, styles and recording formats, 32-bit audio, a new reverb and the ‘dimension’ synth engine.


Additionally, there is a new speaker system with a passive driver – expect “detailed, fat and loud sound” – while the new FM antenna can both receive and transmit. All graphics have been reworked, as well.

On the connectivity front, you now get a USB-C port and with full interconnectivity with iOS, macOS and windows, 4-pole audio jack (for headset mic support) and line in and out sockets are more durable.
