Though the video of the Operator-1 from Swedish startup Teenage Engineering is one of many in our main window on the Community page, it's so unique that we had to give it its own blog entry. In a nutshell, it's a virtual analog synth, it's a four-track audio recorder (complete with nifty-looking virtual tape reels on the crystal-clear OLED screen), it's a looper, and it's an old-school step sequencer. All in a wafer-thin form of milled aluminum--we think we may have found the ultimate airplane tray table music-making machine.
If a picture is worth a thousand words, a moving picture is worth a million, so here's our video of the Operator-1 from NAMM. We hope to have our hands on one for review very, very soon!
