The OP-S CONCEPT is a complete smartphone synthesizer, that fits in your pocket!
Inspired by the simplified design language of OP-1 & OP-Z synth by Teenage Engineering, Gris Design have combined the flexibility and processing power of smartphones.
This concept lets musicians take their music production system with them. A full keyboard, audio I/O with 32bit DAC, built-in 4 high-capacity surrounding microphones, front-facing speakers, immersive screen and a set of three cameras that makes up a perfect tool to CREATE as well as SHARE the creative process on the go!
The OP-S packs not one, but TWO audio jacks too… one for monitoring on your headphones, and another that lets you send sound out to a speaker setup or a laptop running your music software of choice.
Designed to also be a pretty capable smartphone, the OP-S comes with a three-camera setup and a camera bump that actually does something pretty smart by propping up the phone in a stable way to enable you to use the keyboard without your phone rocking back and forth.
