ahh man, its soooo fun using the op-1 to preform live by making loops from scratch in tape mode, and moving loop segments around, etc! but my only gripe is that little split second of silence you get when you switch to a new, unused track in tape. i know why it happens, its working as intended—its to solo the track, but if you’re switching to a new track there’s nothing on the track so it just ends up sounding like silence. maybe i missed something, but is there any way around this? what do you guys think? any ideas?
i wanna say there is a tricky way to do it by holding more than 1 track button down.
Yeah , that’s what I’ve been doing , just making it sound intentional
I’d rather have it work that way than not , but there’s gotta be a trick to it ! Hmmm
Say you’ve audio on track one, and that track is selected.
Say you've audio on track one, and that track is selected.
Say you’ve audio on track one, three, and four…
i think as long as u press “track 2” last in this example you’ll be fine.
^^ spot on
I find that a fast tap will skirt this. The problem becomes noticeable only in that split-second when the button is down. The less time it’s depressed (even in milliseconds), the less chance that silence is noticeable.
Say you've audio on track one, and that track is selected.Press and hold 1, then press two. Et voila, no silence and track 2 now selected.
I use exactly the same method
i think as long as u press "track 2" last in this example you'll be fine.like hold 1,3,4 then press 2.
… prop the OP with your leg, tilt your head right, and press your left ear to your arm.
I wish T1-T4 in tape mode were just for track select and not solo.
You don’t need any silence! Just hold the tracks that are sounding first and press the track you wish to select last.
Let’s say I want track 3 selected, and all 4 tracks are playing.
Yep, with a bit of practice you can definitely hit button 3 a fraction after the rest with no audible silence. Not easy in say a dark club granted.
Then practice I shall!
