I assume it will be hopelessly expensive.

"this time the machine is so small we guarantee it will upset you."

I'll bet the size is less annoying than their precious pretense of not capitalizing the first words of sentences. Oooooo, so edgy and subversive and unrestricted by sterile conventions. rolleyes

I can understand where this is coming from. I've made Blackfin based designs for audio synthesis myself over a decade ago (boards with very good DACs and the DSP on it where a lot cheaper than this "OP-Z" thingy, I must say).

In highschool there was this future engineer (me !) that did a lot of teenage engineering? including for sound synthesis, I get that type of interest.

Then there is the portability factor: at the time I would have liked to bring a little synthesizer on vacation, for instance. But I didn't have one...

Embarrassed to say that I bought an OP-1 a year or two ago. Should have listed it in the worst purchase thread. I never use it.
