- can samples be loaded onto the op-1 via usb or does it have a card-reader?
- can the op-1 play samples in polyphony via external midi (automatically pitching the sample according to the midi-note it receives)?
@bennniii Hi and welcome!
@wolflegjon – thanks for the warming welcome and your help! sounds really, really rad. what a wonderful device!
@bennniii Thats a very good question! I think the synth engine is a one-at-a-time setup but you can select parts of a sample to use so that a sample containing two different sounds can be reused. You can only play one channel at a time from what I understand but someone might be able to correct me if I’m wrong, I’m a little sketchy on the MIDI side of things.
bought! thanks @wolflegjon and @vehka <3
Hope u like it man. =) We’re all fans as you can see =)
@bennniii Wow, thats great! There are so many different ways to use the OP-1 for all sorts of very different styles of music. Most importantly its a lot of fun and inspires creativity, you’ll have a blast with it!
@bennniii I just ordered one back on the 13th of February. TE says it will be the 17th of this month when they ship it though, you might have to wait a while, but it’s worth it. I’ve been wanting this since announcement when I was about 10. I’m sure you will love it.
hehe (: thanks you folks… communities behind instruments have become a crucial aspect as for my choices of purchase (same with the monome, which i love) – i seem to be have arrived in the very right spot, here.
@bennniii Hope it goes well ! I’m teeming with excitement for mine, which might even be delayed again due to TE working on the op-z step sequencer. Most definitely worth the wait though.
Re midi channels, what you can do is use the drum sampler, have half the keys for one sound and half with another. You would be limited re sample length for each sample to half the drum sample storage (12 secs in total). The notes would be gate or one shot only (i.e. no envelope) and obviously limited to a single octave.
What is the fastest way to create a drum kits? There is a software solution/application on this site, that makes an *.aif from several drum sounds. Can’t find it at the moment. But is this the fastest way?
