your Oplab.

Lights, Please.

OWith 2 x 12 bit switchable Digital in- and outputs you can interconnect more than just synhesizers. How about lights, LEDs, buzzers, motors or sensors? All in sync with your music or controlled by MIDI data from your sequencer.

Need a case?

Worrying about the components on the back getting damaged? Or you simply need a more solid stand for your Oplab? We have made for you the beautiful aluminium case with laser engraved function reminder. Order separately in our store.

Drum Pad

Easy conversion from MIDI to CV and even Roland SYNC for the 303, 606 etc.

Eurorack or cigar box?

Oplab comes as a bare PCB for maximum flexibility. If you need heavy protection go for the optional Eurorack mounting plate and mount it straight in your rack or build a neat custom case for your Oplab.

Instrumental junk.

One of the fundamental ideas behind Oplab is to let you connect things, toys or junk that you already have around you and to make it interact with your electronic musical instruments. Grab a broken hard drive, rip it apart, connect and use it as a scratchpad. A simple one is to just connect a mouse. Eureka! The mouse is now a pitch bender.

Hard Disk

Build your own synth.

Connect knobs, potentiometers and LEDs and add some programming skills and you are able to build your own soundmaking machine solely on Oplab. With MIDI in and out straight from the board. A development kit will be ready in the near future.


OP-1 no exception.

Oplab is the perfect companion to your OP-1. Just plug and play for instant MIDI IN, OUT and THRU.
And to please our precious OP-1 owners even more, there will be future OP OS updates that will unlock even more cool functions.

From MIDI to CV to USB. All scenarios covered.
