OP-1 Blog


#221
Hi all, long time lurker on here – excited to have finally ordered my OP-1! Look forward to joining in the chat and maybe a battle or two in future :)

Hey hey! I just got mine and am slowly but surely learning how to use it.


I’ve gone from “just awful” to “mostly awful”

#222

Lol ,it can be more difficult without traditional sequencers.


#223

@Jellygeist I specialise in awful – is that a genre? Because every time I have a play on my PO-12, my wife tells me “That’s awful!” :slight_smile:

Maybe she just don’t understand “dank club bangers”


Protip: Crank up the BPM to about 200 and slap random effects on it…VOLIA you have a club banger

I was in the queue on 4 different websites to get Radiohead @ Fourvière Roman arena tickets...
And I got none :(
My brother managed to get one, whereas he was behind me in the queue.
None of my friends did.
I saw the reservation screen so many times... Bloody websites !

I'm a bit sad...

Exactly the same my friend…I’ve already seen them 13 years ago, but I really wanna see them again :slight_smile:
Have you found something elsewhere or definitely dead ?

Dead cold.

:frowning:

13 yrs ago was the best period, though ! I saw them twice at Nîmes : such great times !!!

#227

Totally agree, it was the best radiohead period for me too :).
I’ve seen them at Eurockeenes 2003, pure memories :smiley:
I listen less now.


#228

I saw them when they were touring the Bends in a small club in Glasgow. Blew me away.


#229

@ghoslty606 Woww! It had to be wonderful


#230

They started with Planet Telex, the whole crowd just stood and stared almost open mouthed, many only used to Creep and the mainly standard guitar rock of Pablo Honey. It was almost like they didn’t understand but dug it at the same time were captivated - the textures were so fresh. They were totally on top of their game at that time in my opinion. I love Kid A don’t get me wrong, but Just and the Bends are staggering anthemic rock tunes that I wish they still churned out today. “Been there done that” I suppose.


#231

I remember the first time I listened to OK Computer, in June 1997…

I was like : OK, it’s over. They’ve done something truly beautiful, but they totally abandoned the idea of commercial success : there is no hit and the crowd will never follow…
I was so wrong : back from summer holidays, everybody around me was talking about Radiohead for something else than just Creep :smiley:

#232

OK Computer and Kid A are my favs :slight_smile:


#233

I’m dedicating a whole day to the OP-1 on Saturday. Gotta learn me how to do stuff


#234

Today’s “My most beautiful song ever” :wink:

I know I still have some road before me to reach a satisfied mind.
Feel like I need take the time to think about what I want to do of what’s left of my time on Earth, stop escaping answering the real questions…
Current job is only giving me money. Time is more precious than this.

Tombola clone project


#236

Loved the support I got from you guys ,when I posted new Octatrack on new gear yesterday.
Really sweet and great advice.
No one else understands.Even musicians in my town don’t know what it is/means.


#237

I hear ya! I’m short on synth friends IRL - this forum is a great substitute.

Besides that, I just love the fact that there actually exists a group of relative strangers who are kind and helpful to each other over the Internet. Gives you hope :’)


#238

Yeah its fun an unique.
Very interesting your max/live Tombola find. Can save…but still hard to re emulate (exactly)… which is cool.
(I watched with sound down).


#239

Get my repaired OP back today :slight_smile:
Hyped to check out the beta OS additions!


#240

Taking the OP-1, A4 and maybe some other toys along to a big jam session with a bunch of friends at a studio on saturday evening.

Really looking forward to the sesh.
