Despite being first announced back in 2009, nothing has come close to matching the innovative nature of the multi-award winning Teenage Engineering OP-1. Part synth, part sampler, its unique interface forces the user to think in different ways about how they make music.
A few years later, the Swedish company introduced their Pocket Operators – micro machines with a cheap and cheerful approach to synthesis. In this tutorial, Point Blank enlists PB instructor, producer and DJ Stefano Ritteri (Dirtybird, Defected) to demonstrate how you can use the OP-1 and Pocket Operators to create tracks on the road. Watch the video above and make sure you subscribe to the Point Blank YouTube channel for more free tutorials as well as special live events.
