set synth volume?

hi, i’m new to op-1 and this forum –

is there a way to set the volume of a synth other than switching to tape “mode” and changing the tape track’s volume? in unison mode some of my sounds get too hot (red light lighting up) but i can’t find a way to turn the volume down before recording to tape…


use the orange knob on the tape screen. theres a slider on the right that u can see. this will turn it down no matter what screen u are on.

Also check out the master fx drive settings. With high drive settings, some synth sounds will clip even at low volume. And yes, the tape screen orange knob is your only static synth volume control.

yeah, the orange slider on the tape screen was what i was looking for – thank you!
