Did someone on this forum ever tried to use the op-1 as a mastering tool for ‘non-op-1’ songs? What would be your approach? Is this a silly idea?
Fact: I’m digging the flavor of the op-1 master channel/vinyl output especially when Drive is used.
Lets say I’ve got a mixdown (electro-pop 4/4 with vocals) ready for mastering and ALSO stems for each group of instruments…
Should I just export L & R master track from Ableton and turn those into some tape 1/2 files (repanned later in the op-1)?
Or, for more punch, should I export kick/snare (mono), maybe main vocals (mono) seperately and get tape 1/2/3/4 to play with?
Is there also great benefit to get from Tape/FX (Punch)/resampling to tape?
Sorry for all the questions, but I know some of you are doing mastering (professionnally or not)
Note: My tracks will be mastered @ a professionnal studio / This is more about testing ‘something else’
