Overdubbing in OP-1


#1

Hey Guys,

So I am starting to learn the ins and outs of my wonderful new little music making device. I realise that we only have 4 tracks to work with. However, I noticed that you can use track one to layer drums and synths and other stuff. Sounds like you can keep overdubbing with just one track. Is there a limit such as certain elements get deleted the more I overdub? Thanks

I dont think so. Just try and cram as much stuff onto one track. Its just an array that stores bits and bytes.
From a sound design standpoint you will run into muddyness at some point.

Cheers mate, in that case it’s actually very doable creating a fully fledged track
