Don’t be fooled by the name – Teenage Engineering

It is a real synthesizer, a lot of people have even thought it was an April 1st hoax, but it is well worth checking out

The Operator-1, Teenage Engineering’s portable synthesizer. It’s a synth, sampler, drum sequencer and controller all in one!

About section:

The Tape Operator is designed with logic in mind.

Every key and encoder is placed in way that makes sense, even if you use it with one hand or if you are lefthanded. And everything is color-coded for quick and easy reading.

And the same color codes are used on the bright active OLED display to make it even more easy to locate the right encoder or function.
Everything displayed with a refresh-rate of 60 frames per second.

On the right side of the case you’ll find all the neccasary connectors.

• 3.5mm input for audio/external microphone
• 3.5mm output for line out /headphones
• 3-pole power-connector for charging the internal battery or for use with power adaptor.
The power connector itself is the same as used in robotic automation applications
• USB 2.0 port for hooking up your OP to your computer transferring your recorded music
• Two holes special machined for carry strap
• Turn the machine upside-down there are two M6 holes for use with our Studio System parts.
