Well-made and fun to play around with. I know that the OP-1 can be used professionally to make tracks. However, I just like it to inspire my creativity. I went big on my first synth and have not regretted it.

The OP-1 is an incredible machine with numerous features that make music creation fun and dynamic. Not only is this device intuitively laid out, it is also built to last. Each knob, key, and button, along with its metal body give it the feeling of sturdiness. The OP-1 is excellent for music production, and integrates seamlessly with your music software (I use Logic Pro X). The device features an extensive selection of synthesizers, sequencers, sounds, drum machines and FX, along with countless other features. If you're looking for an all in one music production workstation, this is the one.

AMAZING PRODUCT AND AWESOME CUSTOMER SERVICE!

First i want to talk abou the customer service. I bought this product on the store in orlando. Since i live in Brazil, they said they would ship the product from the warehouse in Tampa to the house where i was staying and i would get it before i leave back to my home cuntry.(i bought it on monday and would be leaving to Brazil on friday). On tuesday fedex tryied to delivery it but no one was home, the next day they had problems with delivery and it was supposed to be delivered on thursday, but no one came to delivery it. I called the store asking if i would get it before i leave home and i talked to a guy named Wally (sales manager i think) He then called fedex and said if i didnt get my package before i left he would give my money back. Friday morning luckily it was delivered and its awesome. Im really happy with the customer service and the help provided by Wally and his crew. The OP-1 is way more awesome then i expected! overall really happy with the customer service and the product! (Thanks Wally!) PS. sorry for my bad English :)
