Hello fellow brethren of the electronic nature!
I am curious and I wondered if you guys will be able to help me out.
I’m loving what the OT does to samples and I’d like to start playing live by the end of the year with minimal amount of gear. I took my second OT out of my set up and now use all four mono outs. The Analog Heat I copped at the weekend is overly amazing.
I love what the OT can do to samples. Been rinsing the filter DIST and multimode features. Everything is going into my light and portable MX1 and I just love that thing to add extra sound design options. My OB6, Sub 37, and SE-1, probably wouldn’t leave my place. ATM I am using my OT for drums and leave the synth stuff for live sound manipulation.
Taking into account all things mentioned. What are the pros and cons of having the RYTM + OT combo? What are the benefits of the two OTs? I see Fabrizio Rat utilising, like many others, the OT and RYTM combo. I like to play around with the sounds a lot using minor changes to create extra harmonic depth and interest to the sounds being output. I hear the pads of the RYTM are awesome and could prove fruitful when it comes to keeping my hands free to play with other knobs.
My studio set up is giving me everything I want. For live, I’m thinking just one OT or one OT utilising my studio samples synths and one OT for drums plus the MX1 and the heat. I obviously have many an hour experimenting to spend; I guess I want to spend it as wisely as possible. 2 OT’s have felt like overkill so I took one out for a more streamlined “less is more” set up and it’s working. But I haven’t use it to sample the main stereo outs. I could use it as a DAW.
I need to know what you guys would do or are doing with two OT’s Vs. OT + RYTM. Maybe I’ll find my answer through experimentation but until then I’d love to know your ideas and theories. I don’t normally reach out for things like this as I cherish experimentation but I guess I should because maybe you guys will help me reach the goal I am chasing sooner.
Thanks in advance,
