I bought the KO without even looking at the Speak video, and not realising that the Speak was also a sampler.. ah well, I'm sure they have enough unique features to make me want both and not feel too guilty about it lol
I ordered Speak because I really like that Kraftwerk vibe. Also I like having a tonic sound slot that I can use in tandem with my PO-32 that already has it’s own customized Microtonic sounds. So it’s kinda like having 2 tonics. Psh now that I think about it I guess you could sample tonic into a KO... TE is so rad:)
with the KO the one shots are chromaticly assigned to each button and the drum slots are auto sliced. Under a hundred shipped, Amazing! Not to mention one of the video shows a scratch efx that is bad ass. Like others, I didn’t even watch the speak video so I’m obviously biased. Can’t wait to get mine.
“I noticed the scratch effect was kind slow, ie. It seemed to be eighth notes, I think 16s would be cooler.”I looked at the PO-33 manual online looks like there’s 2 scratch speeds (scratch and scratch fast) so maybe 1/8 notes and 1/16th notes are possible?
I’m also wondering which to get. I’m leaning toward the Speak, since my OP-1 appears to do everything the KO does...better. No?
Small thing I just noticed about the Speak: "replaceable drum sounds with microtonic"
Yeah, just noticed the same. So you can upload PO-32 drumkits to the Speak? That's massive. I want one now.
FWIW I don’t think SPEAK is useable as a sampler for non speech sources - at least without some strange/interesting artifacts that is - it appears that it converts the incoming sample into a compressed format probably throwing a lot of the data away in the process, not to say it won’t be useful for non speech sampling but something to consider.
The answer is always both
