An online ‘quick guide’ & overlays?
It appears (from the online quick guide) that there are _“colored overlays that came with the packaging (not mentioned in the press release) to optimize this quick guide tour” (see instagram pic below)
At the bottom of the ‘quick guide’:
to understand all of the OP-Z’s functions,
please read the rest of the manual carefully.
Like the overlays, the manual is not mentioned in the ‘included in package’ in the specs on the press release.
*edit/update - seems the overlays were included with the beta testing units, not sure if they will also be included in the units for general release (but it would certainly be nice) from cuckoos video (linked below) there is certainly an included user/reference manual, but he doesn’t mention (or show) the overlays…
UPDATE: October 5 '18
For those who might not have seen it yet (where have you been?)
@cuckoo’s recent awesome video tutorial outlines much of the OP-Z’s functionality in an easy to understand way. Seems there will be more to come. This is really good!
