it would be awesome if the OP-1 had an SDK for designing FX, synths and sequencers.
It could be fun, but could also create all sorts of problems if 3rd party developers develop buggy extensions that brick people’s OP-1:s.
Nothing stops someone from designing a completely open source portable music workstation of course. It’s only a Kickstarter campaign away from being reality
It would be awsome with an open source workstation! I saw a open source (i think) effect pedal kickstarter a while ago. Seems kinda interesting

Off course all these hypothetical modules would be sanctioned and verified by T.E
But then T.E. would need resources to test - exhaustively - third party modules that do not benefit them in any way, at least financially.
This is exactly why I dream of an OP-1 expander that includes a second screen, 4 more knobs, a few buttons, a second tape machine (for workflow and tape “DJ” tricks), tape file storage, tons of LFO’s and a sandboxed open source module host.
My first module project would be a simple one that leverages the click function of the encoders to allow for a pitch bender --> click to reset!
Ideally the expander would have the same form factor as the op-1 drum pads that someone mocked up on this very forum.
I have an EE background, coding experience, and the desire to work for myself. If there are ideas people want to see or a way to crowdsource a plan from a group here, I would be up for contributing.
What about that Kickstarter thing for a synth/workstation that looked like a Nintendo DS/OpenPandora? Wasn’t that essentially an open platform idea? It looked horrid compared to the OP-1 user interface, but it might provide a better platform?
Is like a 21 century reworking of the nord modular.
^ ^ I will get one if they’re ever put into production. Does anyone know if the mail list archives public or if they’ve posted any news?
I’m a backer but this is all they’ve communicated:

I work for MOD and yeah, it is all open source
btw I dream of a open SDK for the OP-1 :)
^i can already hear the horde of people who fuck up their device and will blame our little forum…
“curiosity killed the cat, but satisfaction brought it back”.
"curiosity killed the cat, but satisfaction brought it back".
Curiosity bricked the op-1, but a firmware update brought it back. (Hopefully)
