I really like the OP-Z. Its fun to play around. And now comes a big but:
Sample organisation is a nightmare. Again: a nightmare. I have been working in music for over 20 years but this has never been so buggy, unreliable, failing and all around bad. So to tell the story of what doesnt work, here are my points:
1.) importing via OTG cable into the samplepak folders result often in samples not playing, even though the come from op1fun, work sometimes but sometimes not. I really dont know why.
2.) backup can only be done via file manager (android), as there is no method of doing via the OPz app. bad, why on gods earth is there no way of easy backup? also: if you copy it over to restore, sometimes it works, but all the presets are gone, sometimes the samples dont work, its an all around buggy mess. backup is therefore not existing and broken.
3.) why do i need 3 apps to do one thing? i need the op1 utility to make kits, then a file manager to transfer and then the op app to change samples on the fly which are on there. why not 1 app, why not from TE altogehter? this is broken and bad.
4.) if I want to change samples in the op-z app, i cannot preview them, which is bad, because my “usersamples” all just have cryptic numbers and i dont know what they are. They also dont appear on the file system, which is cumbersome to evoke. so why not have it working, TE??
5.) sample memory is a mere joke. why only 32mb? my phone has 64GB! why on earth do I have to juggle tiny slices of stuff, when i can have complete libraries in my palm with a simple usb stick? Why the hell all this trouble? Why???
I will send this to TE also because I am fed up with this seriously bad bad bad performance.
Again: the OP is a fine instrument, but the build quality and now the software is a joke. a joke for 550 euros.
come on TE.
