Teenage Engineering OP-Z
OP-Z is a completely stand-alone synthesizer and composer, ready to to be used at anytime and anywhere, but for those of you who need that extra injection of vibrant graphics, interactive user interface and awesome synced animations to feel inspired, we introduce the concept of BYOS - bring your own screen. you already have the phone with that gorgeous retina display in your pocket, right?
just download the OP-Z app, pair the two devices and you are all set. add cellular connectivity, wifi and powerful graphics processing to that and the concept certainly makes sense. all this tech when connected to the OP-Z adds several unique features. like using the phone's camera, snapping a series of photos and arranging them to a beat, creating a synchronised music video ’a-la-minute’.
teenage engineering have worked closely with keijiro takahashi and the unity tokyo studio to fully integrate OP-Z with the unity game engine. as keijiro-san is both a full time software evangelist at unity and a renowned VJ at night, we have had access to a selection of keijiro-san's personally developed tools and shaders which deliver stunning 3D graphics that run at full speed on iphone or ipad. keijiro-san's tool-set and real life experience in performances with motion graphics have been invaluable in making OP-Z an inspiring live tool for moving images in sync with music.
