I was wondering if you could offer your opinions.
I haven’t been spending a lot of time with my opz, since a concentrated week of activity when I was on holiday in Berlin, I do enjoy it, and I am holding out hope that they will allow multitrack output potentially in the future. However even if they don’t I still think it’s a really fun & useful device and will be really yes for any future time in my life where I have more time to use it / more need of portability.
however I’m getting the double Triggs / inconsistent button issue that various other people have discussed on his forum.
I was a very early owner
These are the issues:
Several of the white keys are double triggering. I’ve tried testing it, and it’s a little bit unpredictable meaning sometimes they double trigger and sometimes they don’t. Playing the keys harder seems to help. playing them softer some of the keys actually don’t trigger it all even when you depressed them.
To be honest the double triggering of the keys if it doesn’t get any worse than it already is is not that you just concerned to me, although it is incredibly annoying and frustrating if I’m honest with what I would prefer. It’s just distracting because I’m trying to be creative it the machine is responding in consistently to my physical touch. When you add this to my phone limitations as a flawed human trying to play something musical.ly, it just feels like it’s kind of getting in the way you know.
My main concern is with the track button being a bit finicky. Especially considering this button is used for a lot of functions. I hold it down with shift for instance to change the track length and the lights will kind of flash on and off rly fast. Again, adjusting the level of pressure gives you different results, but it almost feels like it’s not something you can figure out how to press it and it just is again inconsistent.
combining these issues with the red encoder sometimes popping up a bit and I have to push it back down. Also the green encoder (to a lesser extent).
so I guess and writing this I’ve already answered my own question to some extent, in that these issues will likely just get worse. The spirit of this post is not of complaining.
by the way, I might seem crazy to you that I haven’t already just returned it, but I bought it internationally so I’ll have to ship it off.
I wonder if t e have revised or improved the design or quality control or whatever other factor has led to what seems like quite a few people having these manufacturing issues.
