In a crowd of highly-polished gear, the Teenage Engineering Oplab Musical Experimental Board stands out as an honest piece of gear that is just about as bare bones as you can get, but that’s part of the charm of the company; nothing hidden away, just high-quality music gear that gets the job done and, just as importantly, is fun to use.

The Oplab musical experiment board allows you to interconnect virtually any electronic musical instruments and music software.

- Filip Visnjic (

Musical Translation Hub

Although fun and experimentation through music is high on the agenda of the interestingly-named company, this is no toy… well at least not just a toy. The Teenage Engineering Oplab Musical Experimental Board is a central hub for connecting up virtually all your electronic music equipment and music software that could otherwise not talk to each other, kind of like a translator for music.

Connect it all Up

One box with all the answers, the Teenage Engineering Oplab Musical Experimental Board allows you to connect up a myriad of equipment and use them in perfect sync, rather than have three separate units for MIDI, USB, and CV.

With two USB host ports, and a mini USB device port, if you have a device that sends MIDI over USB it can act as a controller or slave with the Oplab. You have MIDI, CV/Gate, and even Sync24/DIN sync connections also, covering you for pretty much any piece of equipment you can throw at it.

There are also two 12 bit switchable digital inputs/outputs, so along with synths, you can connect motors, sensors, lights, LEDs, and buzzers and keep everything in sync with either your music or a sequencer.

Of course, the Teenage Engineering Oplab Musical Experimental Board gives you some on-board controls, as well as any additions you chose to hook up. The board includes: A, B and select buttons, select mode rotary switch, 3 flip switches, and four LEDs.

A Little Play and a Little Knowledge

Similar to the single-board computer, Raspberry Pi, the Teenage Engineering Oplab is limited only by your imagination. With a little bit of knowhow, you can hook up various musical equipment types and control them from the oddest of sources, should you wish to, such as turning a mouse into a pitch bender or an old harddrive into a scratch pad. With a little programming knowledge and a collection of knobs, potentiometers and LEDs you can turn the Oplab into your own bespoke sound machine.
