So I played more around with the Sound, Filter, Envelope and LFO. Man is this little box versatile. It can be a subtle ducker or compressor, a Ring Modulator or Phaser, it can change the sound of the Synth line completely when you combine the Envelope with the Filter Frequency and set the resonance to self oscillation. The LFO can act as a second envelope.
It is also an enhancer that can add harmonics only to the high frequencies of the signal, so its really a swiss knife in the studio.
Its very good to have a patch Volume, Wet level and wet/dry-knob so you can adjust the loudness very accurately, so there is no difference between the dry and the wet signal.
The Filter ist very smooth, just lovely. the distortion effects have all their distinct sounds and Im still discovering their uses. I think the can be usefull on every channel in a music production. Too bad I cant clone it for more instances …
But to tweak all the variables, you will need time. But its very direct, so good for live action and experimentation.
Too bad, Elektron hasnt the Software ready yet
A short wish list:
bring out OB (at least a beta)
make it also a class compliant Audio Interface
dont let it forget all its settings after switching off
show the current bpm in the lfo-page
write more usecases and examples in the manual and make some tutorial videos.
