OP-1 Tracks


#741

At this point I’ve been doing everything just in the op-1. Btw you are in the circuit group on Facebook correct? I posted something about connecting the two and I think you might have been the person helping me. If so you’ve been some cool stuff with those two as well! Very cool loose stuff. I have two playlists posted on my YouTube channel. One is all op-1 stuff the other is the start of my circuit stuff. The circuit I record into an old boss micro br.

Thanks! You've been some good stuff yourself with the Octratack and the op-1!

Hey mate thanks. Quick question, do you do everything on OP-1 or do you export to a DAW?

I been pushing myself to go past the point where an idea on the op1 is not planning out as I’d hoped, and just take it a bit further, to the point of jamming it to album… Uploading to SoundCloud so I can look back and make progress bit by bit. Here’s the lasted sampled from radio. All within the op1. Rough and gritty, but a bit of fun. Sampling and working with samples is very new to me, like musician for 17 years, but put a sample in front of me and I just have to use my ears to figure out what to do with it. Add to that that I’m a guitarist and a terrible let keyboardist at best… And it’s a whole lot of challenging fun. Plusz I always try to do something unusual, and that often works against me insofar as making something of a high quality. Anyways.

Used all kinds of OP-1 trickery I learned from this forum on this one. Thank you guys for that. Maybe it meets someone’s taste!

never really tried any asymmetric meters on the op1 before

I hadn’t used my OP-1 much in the past few months but yesterday I woke up in a bit of a manic fit and took out the OP-1 and quickly laid down just a couple of chaotic drum tracks to tape and then just played with the tape while recording to album mode. Fun trick when you’re in a manic phase: hitting the ‘chop’ (button 6) button really fast can be like a fun reverse-scrubber over the whole loop.


I spent the rest of the day finally learning a little bit of how to do some generative chaotic 3D video in Max. In sounds and visuals, this is a pretty good representation of yesterday’s brain.

Thanks! I basically just followed “Delicious Max 71” tutorial and then made some tweaks like having the ‘scale’ param on a jit.gl.multiple (I think - I still have barely any understanding of Jitter yet) really exaggerate the shapes and sizes of the big array of shapes. A lot of it is triggered from an envelope follower that emphasizes lower frequencies. Then I used the ‘jit.vcr’ object to record the video and audio in sync.


It’s something I’ve been wanting to do for the past year since I first got Max but I’ve been slow and lazy in getting around to it :slight_smile:

The tutorial I reference is pretty good though, especially since it has the ‘generate envelopes from a sound file and use it to influence the 3D world’ bit that I’ve been missing.

Hi, longtime lurker on the forum.


Did a track a short while back, and thought maybe I should post it here.

***Listening on speakers, earphones, headphones is recommended (because Bass)***

Live take of a track done on the Teenage Engineering OP-1.

All sounds are made using only the OP-1’s synth/drum engines, except the vocals, which was sampled & cut up using the OP-1’s sampling capabilities.

A touch of reverb from the Strymon Big Sky was added at the end of the signal chain, to give the track a little more presence, and a limiter was placed after that to keep things under control.

Enjoy, and thanks for listening! = )
