I bought this Teenage Engineering OP-1 in 2021 and this synth/sequencer sounds great and has great effects but isn't very conducive to my workflow and with my work the 4 tracks are very limiting.  It is a great device for when inspiration strikes while on the go and its portability is better than anything else on the market. Items included are the OP-1, the box, usb cable, two rubber bands and the clear key overlay.

This item will only be sold and shipped to the Continental United States only!
