back in 2011, stockholm-based studio teenage engineering unveiled the OP-1, a portable synthesizer measuring 282mm long by 102mm high and 13.5mm wide (11 x 4 x 0.5 inches). almost ten years later, madrid-based studio gris design has unveiled the design of the OP-S CONCEPT, a complete smartphone synthesizer that fits in your pocket inspired by the simplified design language of its predecessor.

with the OP-S CONCEPT, gris design wants musicians to take their music production system with them everywhere, just like you do with your phone. imagine having the best idea ever and being able to work on it immediately, no matter where you are? 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 make up the perfect tool to create as well as share the creative process on the go.

the OP-S CONCEPT features a slider phone type of design, where the top part is a seamless touchscreen while the part that slides contains the synthesizer keyboard and all the controllers appear on the touchscreen. with all these elements you can compose, sample, loop and produce any audio track ever imagined. two audio jacks are available — one for monitoring and another to send out to the speakers or a laptop.

 

this project by GRIS design is not affiliated at all with teenage engineering, but we do hope the latter one picks it up and produces it.
