OP-Z Battle 001


Thanks! I used a mute group to bring down the drums/percussion. You could also use the “duck” feature in the Performance Track to achieve a similar result. You can transpose chords in the master track OR on the chord itself by or by holding down the “tonality” step component button.

Here’s one:


Double checking because this one has too many rules: is it ok to tweak the initial settings of the accepted presets or do we need to use them as-is? Asking because I’ve managed to make the best sub-bass from the saw bass.

Tweak away. You just need to use the plug in slot one. And feel free to dshare that preset!

Here it is:

Technically my first “release” using the OP-Z :boom:

EDIT: Uploaded a new version! I wasn’t happy with the original outcome.


Wow, really nice use of a single pattern. I like how it develops. Did you use lots of mute groups?

Yes, I’m using 6 of them - super handy feature! I actually didn’t know about mute groups before reading the posts here.

A bit of a tangent: I’ve always been an MPC person, but the TE/Elektron way of doing things with steps and parameter locks is looking more interesting to me these days. I might replace it with an Octatrack or Digitakt (I haven’t decided yet).

Giving this a try. No use of the master track, just messing with the sparks to get variety and depth into the progression. Can’t wait to really learn this thing https://soundcloud.com/richfrankel/op-z-1

I think there’s definitely room for both. This is much more like programming music, amazing and forces you to think in a different way. It’s just less linear.

I made this on a flight back from rome. the distortion effect of the OP-Z has some serious punk vibe and is glueing bass and kick nicely together. The Single Pattern was copied to the 16 slots, each using a different mute group.


Here’s my “first week of ownership” effort.

I gave this a go! Educational.

Oh man, I feel your pain. The OP-Z is so addicting, hang in there!

Should we get a voting thread going?
