Teenage Engineering Line is a new OP-Z Synthesizer expansion module giving you more I/O and routing flexibility for external audio signals. 

The OP-Z is a multimedia Synthesizer with a very unique operating concept. It is a Synthesizer, a groovebox but also a video synth in a single, portable device. Rather unspectacular from the outside, but it hides a very sophisticated engine in the inside. The sequencer alone is one of the least on the market.

Teenage Engineering has today announced a new expansion module with which the OP-Z becomes an even deeper part of your setup.

Line is a new hardware expansion module for the OP-Z multimedia Synthesizer and groovebox. The line module expands the I/O range of the OP-Z with new inputs and outputs. It adds a stereo line input and an additional stereo line output to the unit. Like the oplab, it also adds an input and output for either MIDI, trigger and PO sync. This can be set with a mini green switch on the module.

The module is particularly useful when the OP-Z is part of a system. You can use line to add external audio signals to your mix. The line output gives you a second stereo output available within OP–Z. Handy is that you can route individual tracks to the module output instead of the main mix giving more flexibility to process individually tracks. Plus you can make an effects loops with your favorite effect pedals. Line gives you the option to switch between mono and stereo signals.

Further, the output can also be used for headphone cueing of your tracks before bringing them out to the main mix.

  1. The sequencer alone is one of the best (not “least”) in the market (and hardware sequencers are not cheap, even for minimal examples). Look alive, there, Major Tom.
