New the forum but super happy to explore here and hope to start participating more as I learn. Got my OP-1 a few weeks ago and I’m in love with it - but relatively new to synths in general. Trying to learn from a variety of sources: videos, articles, this forum, the manual, and just playing around with it.
Before finding this site and op1.fun, I found and downloaded packs of sounds from:
Audio Fanatic (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=90Hv_HBRxIU)
Jade Wii/Dawless Jamming (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L8RxD3ndCNU)
I downloaded those packs and watched the videos and added all those sounds from those 2 folders to my synths folder on the OP-1 without issue and have a lot of cool new sounds. Then I read:
MAX LIMIT OF PATCHES FOR THE OP-1
- Max Synth Sampler Patches = 42
- Max Synth Synthesis Patches = 100
- Max Drum Patches = 42
Now I’m confused and I have so many questions - right when I felt like “ok I’m really getting this thing!”.
The Dawless pack had 34 sounds in it. They Voyager Pack had 33 sounds in it. They all seem to be there. But 34 + 33 is 67, so this is where I get confused.
Are these not “synth sampler patches”? What is a “synth synthesis patch” vs a “synth sampler patch”? Is each sound its own patch, and what are those sounds classified as?
Another thing I noticed: when I click on the “dawless” patch files on my computer, it says in a computer voice: “OP1 patch”. BUT when I click on the Voyager sounds on my computer, it actually plays the sound for me (via itunes). They are both AIFF files - what’s the difference?
I have a bunch more questions but these are the main ones that have been bugging me in the past few days as I installed my 1st patches/sounds, and I haven’t been able to find an article or video explaining to me like I’m 5 after Googling around. I assume either I’m asking it wrong or its a very “noob” question.
Thanks for any help, really appreciate it!
