Just finished reading the guide. Thank you! It helps a lot with understanding the way it works and the intent/implications behind the design decisions. I particularly like the inline examples.

I would love to see this type of writing for the Digitone. (Since I recently added it to my collection. :slight_smile: )

It would also be nice to clarify a bit about connection and control between different machines.

WOW
Thank you for this.
You look nice.

No problem – but I can’t take any credit for it. Merlin did all the hard work of writing it in the first place. :wink: It’d be best to hit him up about any additions or revisions.

I’d love to create more documentation about other the other synths I have (sadly no Digitone) but I just don’t have the time with a young family these days. Perhaps in the future.

Thank you very much. Great stuff.

bumping this up to say thanks! Haven’t had a chance to go through it yet, but I’m looking forward to it!

Great reading I’m having here. Great piece of information. I wish I had stumbled on this documentation earlier. After a month of thoroughly reading and testing the OT, I just recently found out that banks had each 4 parts …

(During the whole process I was constantly worried about the limitation that would have made impossible any decent adaptation of my tracks to the OT)

thank you Merlin and Thermo. A new genre of re-edits.

Someone should turn this into a series of video tutorials. Many thanks for making what amounts to a more legible and user-friendly manual.

Excellent manual. Thanks for the reformating, easy to read. Well, until it gets to mixing Parts and Scenes, then my brain gave up.

Thanks for all the work Merlin and Thermo.

Thanks for the all the work on this! I just pulled the trigger on a MkII, and am trying to do as much reading in advance as I can. This looks like a great addition to my reading list!

I found merlin’s guide a lot more helpful than the manual. The manual is good as a reference if you wanna double check what something means, but as far as reading it straight through… Idk. Different strokes.

Happy learning :stuck_out_tongue:

I was a little apprehensive before my purchase of the OT mkii due to it’s complexity.
However, after reading this fantastic guide, (not read the OT manual yet), my mind was put completely at ease.

Then :

I’m a little concerned again now! :astonished: :laughing:

Another big thank you for this very informative guide!
