Teenage Engineering is an instrument design & electronics company based in Sweden. Their ground-breaking synthesisers have led a revolution in portable music making, starting with the OP-1 in 2010. This ‘all-in-one wonder’ synth has won numerous awards and has quickly established itself as a modern classic.
They are also known for their line of Pocket Operators – a collection of 9 calculator-sized synthesisers, drum machines and samplers. Pocket Operators are part of Teenage Engineering’s goal to make electronic music accessible to everyone.
In 2018, TE released the OP-Z – a multimedia sequencer designed for fast, flexible and intuitive workflow. The OP-Z can sequence music, lights and motion graphics using its unique LED interface.
Their latest venture, Pocket Operator Modular, has seen them step into the realm of modular synthesis. The POM-400 & POM-170 are fully analogue, battery-powered modular synthesisers. There is also an analogue sequencer / keyboard as part of the range – the POM-16. As if that wasn’t enough, they are packaged as a DIY kit for you to build at home, prompting the slogan ‘Think Twice, Bend Once’.
