Second Work / So much FUN! / OP-1
OP-1 -> Strymon BigSky -> Taskam DR-05. No computer editing of any sort. All glitches are intentional. No, seriously, I’m actually using Grid as the master effect.
This is a “serious test” of my new mini-setup and I actually like it a lot. Strymon makes OP-1 sound like a thousand-dollar synth (which it currently is). DR-05 is super-easy to use and doesn’t require a separate mastering step, unlike their multi-track recorders. I feel like my investments in this hardware are finally paying off. Now I just have to use it to actually record stuff.
Made a new one, Hip Hop-Reggae-Drum n Bass-Style
From a recent EP of 4 track tape chaos and breakdowns. This piece from the OP-1 was included as hey, still on a 4 track. And it’s got a hazy My Bloody Valentine inspired vibe.
new mixtape just op-1 and fx
I just put out this beat tape produced exclusively on the op-1.
I used both synth and drum sampler, as well as endless sequencer. Samples for the most part come from LPs dug at various charity bargain bins in London.
All beats consist of one 4-track loop and various tape tricks and mutes to keep it fresh to listen to and fun to play. Each performance was then recorded on album. No external sound processing was used.
I’m very happy about the result. The picture is from my street and in the very far back you can see the London skyline.
I hope you’ll enjoy it as much as I did producing it!
amazing output here
@tasmansea thanks so much, it was just a eno overdrive, a lo-fi junky, a strymon el capstan and a digitech digital reverb
@tasmansea Thanks. Sorry about the reflection obscuring the pedal name. It’s a fantastic reverb!
I have been very busy with work and the kids last year and this track has been in my head for a long time now… The result is not up to what I imagined but I think I am done anyway. Guitar recorded with Biasfx.
Hey pals, not sure if I shared this properly. Thought y’all might enjoy something really different from the more electronic op1 jams <3
