Flexible Architecture

When you create a sound on the OP-1 you use the keys T1 - T4 to switch between the different sound pages. The chart below shows what’s hidden under keys T1 to T4 in Synthesizer and Drum mode. The flexibility here is that every ‘building block’ is exchangable. Which means that you may switch Engine but keep Envelope, Effect and LFO type. Or Just switch LFO.

Flexible Architecture

Depending on LFO type you may modulate any of the three prevoius pages’ parameters.
