I was informed that having one topic for all of my TE related content would be more organized / less pollution for this forum and I couldn’t agree more. So here we are
If you have any questions/comments do not hesitate- i’ll try my best to get back to everyone.
My latest comparison was quite controversial apparently // OP-1 vs Digitakt- here’s the full video:
And before going bonkers about THAT comparison- let me lvl you out with one that has more workflow crossover
My problem with the Digitakt is that every demo seems to be made by people who want to make music that, for want of a better phrase, lots of people like. The amazing thing about the OP-1 to me is that it has created a scene of people quietly, with no prospect of any commercial release, producing music that is frequently absolutely wild. I don’t mean techno with a slightly different donk, or the millionth flipped sample with a hiphop beat. I mean, a drum loop re-played on segmented phonemes from a newsreader they captured off the radio instead of drums, something they sang into the mic processed horribly through the cow into a semi rhytmic texture, a beautifully broken and misguided attempt at a rock bassline using a synth, and so on. It’s bloody glorious, the tool lends itself to it, and so many people hear its crazy call. To be honest, when I see people like Liam making conventional dance or hiphop music on an OP1, I’m kind of impressed, even though I’m totally not into that kind of music, because I just think… it must have been really hard to make the OP-1 do something so vanilla. Sorry if that sounds mean, it’s intended to be praise of the OP-1, rather than a diss of the music most people like which is, after all, greatly loved by most people.
Took me about a week for process WTF happened at SuperBooth
Here’s my take on the OP-1 Field / TX-6 / Polyend Play / Syntakt + Uno Drum: My take on the OP-1 Field / TX-6 / Polyend Play / Syntakt // SuperBooth 2022 - YouTube
Opinions about new TE prices be firey right now!
I waited for the dust to settle a little on this one. My first impression and in depth review of the TX-6 // Pros vs Cons and practical uses of the instrument:
I hope op-1 field is coming soon!
You’re still waiting on it?
Here’s somebody waiting for that first Liam video on OP-1 Field. And btw… waiting for my Field to come too.
Yep! Should arrive Friday apparently!
Whether you’re using the OG OP-1 or the Field, these are core OP-1 features that may have slipped through the cracks
Even after spending years with the OP-1, there’s still a few things that slipped in between the cracks.
Whether you’re using the OG OP-1 or the Field, these are core OP-1 features that you may have missed:
I just keep going back to it for sampling and i’ve found that combining different tempo samples that “aren’t supposed to fit” is often where the magic happens:
Considering the discontinuation of the OG OP-1 and just the general confusion around Teenage Engineering as a company, today felt like a good day to drop this video:
