2 things are keeping the OP1 from being fully immersive for me…no EQ pre-recording and no bouncing an ‘album’ back to ‘tape’ .
(The ear trick doesn’t capture eq or effects (right?) and without those the 4 tracks + overdubbing is ok/fun challenge )
But the 4 tracks is … getting frustrating! The problem is it’s so inspirTionL
(Or inspirational) i want to add more layers and more and more!!! and keep playing on top of that…And once i start doing that it can get muddy fast… or i start thinking about pulling out another multitrack recording device…
Overall, i’m amazed by this device! Great job on the UI and ease of use. As a portable, long lasting, enjoyable to use synth, i’m happy!
If i could eq synths 1st and also transfer the master album mix back to one track, i could spend ages all in the op1…i’d like to run down the battery.
Is there something else that multitrack records, with a wonderful screen(that doesn’t need to be looked at much ) , streamlined workflow, portability ? (2 op1s seems extravagant ;))
Thanks for any suggestions!
Side note: i find most gear leads me to tend to make certain styles over others…The op1 used by itself seems to encourage me to make 80s horror soundtracks and 90s scifi - not that it sounds retro or old, it’s just a feeling…
