OK, here goes!
The theme for the first OP-Z battle is 1.
Only the OP-Z is to be used, no external effects or sequencing.
Only one pattern. Use step components and the Master track to to get as much from one pattern as possible.
Only the plugs from slot number one can be used. If you’ve swapped these for new ones, I’ve made a list of the factory defaults at the end of the post so you know which ones to use.
Minimum length is one minute, to be in keeping with the theme, but longer is perfectly fine. If you can make a one-pattern song that stays interesting for five minutes, do it.
Any effects, tape scratches, and pitch bending are fine.
Recordings should be made straight out of the 3.5mm jack into whatever recording device you have. No post-processing. Just a straight recording into an iPhone, a computer, or whatever. Upload to your platform of choice — SoundCloud, YouTube, etc. Anything, as long as you can embed it in the forum and we don’t have to click away to listen.
Deadline one month — let’s say 13th April, which is a Saturday.
These are (I think) the factory default plugs in position 1. Please correct me if I’m wrong and I’ll edit the list. I’m pretty sure I didn’t change them since I got the OP-Z.
