Is The Teenage Engineering OP-1 Field Worth It?

In his latest loopop video, host Ziv Eliraz asks the question “Is the new Teenage Engineering OP-1 Field worth it?”

Eliraz compares the OP-1 Field to the original OP1, and to other portable options, like using a laptop or an MPC.

And, while he acknowledges that the OP-1 Field is expensive, he argues that “Nothing beats the form factor and portability of the OP-1. ”
