sampling and saving op-1

I understand how to sample through the synth engine or drum engine.

However, how do you save the sample? how many samples can i store on the op-1?

as soon as i move off the synth->sample section of the op-1 i lose the sample.

press and hold the 1-8 button that your currently working in. a lil graphic will show up that will tell u its saving, and when its saved. then it will show up in your snapshots folder

how do we access the snapshot folder?

just like any other preset, but it will be a folder called snapshot in the menu.

if u plug in your op1 to usb u can retrieve/rename these snapshots in their respective synth/drum folders

thank you!! you dah-man!!

Alright i think I’m messing something up…

so here’s how i sample…

i go to synth->shift + 1->scroll to sampler->shfit + mic->scroll to microphone icon with blue encoder->record sample

now the sample will play across the keyboard where each key represents that sound clip at different notes

now if i hold one of buttons 1 to 8 it will say “saved” i go to the snapshot folder and it has saved a different synth preset in their…typically the synth already assigned to button 1 to 8?

once i scroll off of the sampler icon…i lose the sample…confused…

also when i do hold one of the buttons 1 to 8 it will say “full” …

Nevermind, i figured it out.

for some reason my op-1 will only let me save a patch using synth key 1…

if you’re working with key 1 you have to press 1 to save. 2 and 2, 3 and 3, etc

@opTAV make sure you hold number key for 5seconds until you see a green tick. Just a thought ,or maybe you’ve saved lots of stuff already and memories full.
