I’ve had the OP-1 for less than a year and mainly use it to make sampled based music. But I had a stab at making a bunch of beats that 95% used all the built in engines and drums etc.
One thing that jumps out was that all my tracks sound quite thin and I’m not sure why. It’s like they’re lacking width or something.
I’m not sure whether I need to start messing with panning the tracks? (up until now I’ve never bothered looking into it, but seen there’s loads of good threads about panning etc)
I don’t know if I need to just layer more sounds over the top of the tracks I’ve been making?
Whether it’s just a characteristic of the OP-1?
Or maybe a combination of all of the above?
Above is a link to a playlist I made of the tracks I talked about at the beginning of the thread so you can hopefully get an idea of what I mean.
I listen to something my friend’s created in Ableton (I know, it’s not really a good comparison) and it always sounds richer and wider but I’m not that experienced when it comes to production to put my finger on what it is…
Any tips would be appreciated or links to useful threads.
