Not entirely meant as an ultimate showdown between instruments, the video dives into the features of both, comparing track count, track and bus effects, MIDI handling, automation, sequencers, interfacing and more.
Huang gives the OP-1 credit where its due, praising its effects, tape emulations and small form factor – even defending its hefty $2,000 price tag by saying “I feel like if they made a gigantic workstation OP-1 […] nobody would bat an eye at that price even if it did the exact same thing”.
That’s not to say Huang didn’t celebrate the areas he felt Flip outperformed the OP-1; the musician-YouTuber found the app’s per-track parametric EQ, MIDI editing and file management to be better handled.
Watch the video below:
Huang has, before, made a ‘tongue-in-cheek’ comparison of the features of the OP-1 Field against his Flip app. When the OP-1 Field was announced in May 2022, Huang tweeted a table with certain features of both, captioned “I’m biased but also these are facts.”
