Voltage synth

voltage is a new synthesizer engine with electrifying results, using multiple interconnected oscillators. it can produce a wide range of sounds, from basses to organs to pads and more. make sure to checkout the new voltage synth.


Arpeggio sequencer

OP-1 has been updated with arpeggio, a new arpeggiator sequencer, that you can
use both with drums, synths and of course samples. it works great for basslines and
lead sounds.

PO sync

Pocket Operator sync

we have expanded the sync capabilities of OP-1 for simple synchronisation of pocket operators, also adding flexibility for connecting to other gear.
