just to add the OP-Z has individual bass lead tracks wheras th op-1 has individual synth engines. But is this going to be the same diversity of synth sounds. Or has the OP-z got a much more limited engine to work with?
Kindly the folk at TE have got back to me after emailing them. This is a mystery yet to be revealed as they don’t want to reveal an engine comparison at this stage which is understandable i guess. And that it has been developed from the ground up as we already know. So nothing new to be learnt. Oh well i tried.
From what I can guess by "somewhere between op-1 and pocket operator " then the op-z will have capable synthetic sounds without as much modulation matrix Ness of the op-1s lfo section. Just a guess.
The op-z is multi timbral,without the 6min 4track audio recorder. So can play multi sounds at once without having to commit to tape.(edit them afterwards). The op-1 is single voice in real time, but has the best digital tape.
@Peeter Thanks for the report. I would imagine the DSP capability on the OP-Z to be much better. So I think it is more a case of what TE want to allow it to do. I expect that will be guided by engineering time, marketing and UI (particularly in non screen mode).
