next generation portable instrument,
The OP-Z is one of a kind.

OP–Z is an advanced fully portable 16-track sequencer and synthesizer, with a range of both sample based and synthesis based sounds. it's the world's first stand-alone sequencer of its kind, that lets you sequence music, visuals, lights and more.

Teenage Engineering OPZ Front


Born to be portable, just at 212.5 mm width, 57.5 mm height and 10 mm thin, it weighs in at just 200g. With the absence of a screen, we introduce the concept of ’bring your own display’ - use your iPhone, iPad or computer, because the OP-Z is built for people on the move that already carry a great display in their pocket.


OP–Z comes with 16 sample packs, each containing 24 samples. the basic configuration is divided into kicks, snares, percussion and effects, and you can easily add your own samples.


OP–Z comes with 12 synthesis based sound engines. more sound engines will be released continuously and made available through the configurator in the OP–Z app.


OP–Z has two separate fx-buses, shared across all instrument tracks. the built-in fx are delay, reverb, bit-crush and distortion. future firmware upgrades will expand the OP–Z with even more fx.

component based step sequencing.

one of the basic concepts of the OP–Z is its ability to run each track totally independent from one another. tracks can run at various speeds, have different lengths and loop points. separate tracks can even jump-cut back and forth irregularly and randomly if you want. using this you can make a short sequence sound more or less different each time it is repeated in your composition.

a composition is divided into tracks and each track is built from sequencer steps – just as you are used to, but on top of that we have added something truly unique we call step components that adds an extra dimension of instructions for each step. this new tool makes composing a track much more dynamic, deep and rich – a long needed addition to traditional sequencing.

the tracks on the OP–Z are polymetric. meaning that each track has dynamic track length from 1 up to 144 steps. making it possible to work in high or low track resolution. you can choose to go completely off-grid or stay 100% quantized. thanks to the OP–Z real time melodic analysis you can at any time automatically transpose whole sequences in different scales across six octaves.


Teenage Engineering Four Wheel Knob Design

teenage engineered four-wheel drive.

using the four color coded endless dials you control everything from synth parameters, filters, effects and levels to the adsr shape of an instrument. the rgb led's give you instant feedback of values and functions. these encoders were specially engineered for the OP-Z to make it possible to keep the 10 mm height of the unit and to provide maximum resolution.


Teenage Engineering OP-Z Phone App

bring your own screen.

connect OP–Z wirelessly to a mobile device. thanks to the extremely energy efficient ble technology your OP–Z will run and sync to your screen for hours and hours, without you having to charge the unit.
with the OP–Z app you see the numbers and graphs behind the music you create in real time. at a glance, you know how your instruments are balanced in the mixer or just how much effect is applied to each instrument.
the screen adds another dimension to your interaction with the OP–Z. unlocking multi touch features, you can adjust multiple mixer sliders at once or use the smooth touch pad to adjust effects or filters. perfect when performing live.


Packed with multiple synthesizer engines, beats, samples, effects, visuals and preset patterns, the OP-Z has the ability to control up to 16 lights through dmx, it has a unity 3d® integration to let you interact with your own 3d worlds, as well a built in photomatic feature which allows you to instantly sequence images taken with your smartphone camera. more… the OP-Z has an expansion slot for modules that will add a range of hardware upgrades, each with its own unique functionality.
