New battle, new rules:
Empty the tape. Press the tempo/metronome key and turn the green encoder all the way counterclockwise to disable sync and the tape grid. This will be your tape setting throughout the whole battle. No grid. No cheating with pre-cut tape segments. Cut and paste only by ear.
Use the SKETCH sequencer in at least one main element of your song.
Keep the song length under 3 minutes.
All recording and mastering must be done on the OP-1 only, final recording to album.
External gear is allowed but not mandatory.
Multiple entries per participant are of course allowed and very welcome.
Feel free to experiment with different BPM and timings. The tape doesn’t care anymore.
Try to stick to the rules, but feel free to break them if they stand in the way of your creativity.
Deadline is in about three weeks: Sept. 19th.
EXTENDED TO SEPT. 26th
