Watch Stefano Ritteri Explore Teenage Engineering's OP1 and Pocket Operators

Point Blank instructor, producer, and DJ Stefano Ritteri shows how to use the portable synths to create a track on the road.

First dropping in 2009, Teenage Engineering's OP1 is a portable synth, sampler, and recording device with a whole lot of quirky features to stir inspiration and have you thinking about creating music in a different way.

Following the release of the OP1 was Teenage Engineering's line of Pocket Operators—which now includes rhythm, sub, factory, arcade, office, and sub models—a collection of micromachines that are as powerful as they are fun.

For its latest video, Point Blank invited DJ and producer Stefano Ritteri to explore the powerful synth and pocket operators and show the portable versatility that they provide. You can watch the video in full via the player above, with more on Point Blank and its courses here.
