I have been using the OP-1 for a couple of months now and love it It has really been a much needed breath of fresh air maybe even a warm blanket. I have a couple of effect pedals I really enjoy using in tandem. However, as I quite enjoy using the op1 without a mixer and using tape to arrange everything I would like to be able to resample effected op-1 track back into itself rather than have the entire output go through the effect loop. If that makes sense.
In which way would be able to monitor the output going back to the op1 without creating a feedback loop? Would an audio interface with multi outs work, an audio splitter?
I have no idea and apologise if my writing doesn’t make sense. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much. I look forward to meeting you all!
i use a Y cable (TRS stereo to 2x TS mono) and treat the L&R on my OP1 as two separate outputs using hard panning.
Thank you docshermsticks and SLOTH. Such a a beautiful pic and simple solution. I will try it when I got home. So happy thank you.
i use a Y cable (TRS stereo to 2x TS mono) and treat the L&R on my OP1 as two separate outputs using hard panning.i posted this pic up on the old forum, not sure if it made the trek.
not sure what u mean exactly?
Does anyone still have the picture that shows how to record live OP-1 sounds with external effect? The pictures were posted above but don’t appear to be visible any more.
i can’t find the pic on my laptop anymore
dunno what i did w/ it
its pretty easy tho just visualize it.
Thanks docshermsticks. Did anybody ever find a work-around to send live synths/drums through external effects and back into the OP-1 for recording? I’ve looked through the forums and can’t find anything, so currently planning to use my Korg KP3 to capture the audio and then feed it back into the OP-1.
since the panning is done at the tape track level
there is no way to pan the live input to one side (lets say left)
while also selecting the return tape track which is panned the other way (right)
i think u could do it tho if u muted the return track
or something like that
this way u wouldn’t get a feedback loop
but u also wouldn’t be able to hear anything
