OP-1 Tracks

edited June 2014 in Tracks
are we starting a new thread? or single posts since we now have categories?


  • I think it is nice to have a general track thread like we had even though we have categories. This could be the "official" tracks thread :)

    I´ll start with a collab/remix contest me and three others did in a norwegian facebook group. We all had to submit 5+ tracks/loops at 42 bpm and then make our own mix out of the material that was submitted. My contribution should almost not be posted here as none of the original material was from the OP-1.. but I did "master" my mix with the OP-1, sped it up +3 and I added some tape tricks + some cwo effects. The editing before that was done in Logic,

  • nice work @slomen, sounds like a 80s TV series opening with a haunting twist. like what you did here
    I've got nothing new to share so can only refer to my stale SC

    Edit : Looks like the formatting on the players is a little wonky. Click through to sites if you want to listen / download the album. Beep boop.

  • So I finished up the thing I posted yesterday.
    the DNA synth is craaazy... and this uses only a relatively tame patch I made...

  • Hi everyone. I'm new to this forum and the op-1 (been about a month I think) . This is easily the best piece of gear I've purchased, so much fun and inspiration. Here's a mix of the first batch of tracks I've done so far. Everything was created on the op-1 except the last beat. Very raw and kinda sloppyLooking forward to hearing other op users music when I get off work. Peace

    Hey ya'll. Here is a quick and dirty mixdown I made. Sorry for the pops n clicks, my unit must be defective cuz I cant seem to record a loop without them.[hahaha/tears of frustration] I usually drag the 4 Tape tracks into Reaper, and recreate all my loop points with markers, then by splitting/chopping the tracks at those same marker points, fadeins/fadeouts are created automatically by Reaper. And those fadeins/fadeouts silence the pops n clicks.                 

    Song sounds like......Alec Empire and Lee "Scratch" Perry eating acid in a graveyard....or something.idk.

    I'll re-post my work again. All tracks made solely on the OP-1. I am new to this whole music game, so most of my levels are a bit off etc etc. Hope y'all enjoy them. There is some useful/interesting info in the track description.

  • New summer track to sip some Lemonade to.

  • PS: How are you guys embedding the widgets?

  • One more new one!

    Dropped three hot tracks in the last weeks and a teaser. Here they are in order:

    Well it feels like ages since I managed to finish up a track, though looking back that’s probably because it has been a few months since I have!   This track was something I started in Maschine Studio, using that to do all of the beats and most of the synths.

    The backwards edited guitar parts were recorded through my older pedal board using the Xotic EP Booster, Boss Tera Echo, and TC Flashback x4 pedals.  I’m not sure how parts of that lick got reversed, it happened randomly when I was slicing the audio in Maschine.  One of those happy accidents I guess!

    The other guitar parts were recorded with my newer pedal board using the EP Booster again, the TC Hall of Fame reverb, and my new favorite delay, the Strymon Timeline.  Beautiful delay, you can hear it doing all sorts of weird things on the intro guitar for instance.

    The main synth melody was recorded using the OP-1.  It was just played in realtime, then tweaked a bit with EQ in the mixdown.

    Since I sold the Maschine Studio before I was done with this track, the rest of the arranging and mixing was done in Ableton Live.  Used mainly the built in EQ to tweak things during the mixdown.  Mastering was done in Triumph using DMG Audio’s Equilibrium, Voxengo MSED, and Fabfilter Pro-L.

    (and no, I have no idea what “DDP” means in this case, it just popped in my head while writing the track and refused to leave!)
