I just bought a used OT mk2 for $850 a week ago on an impulse and now im feeling like it was a mistake. 6 months ago I bought a DT and DN and fell in love. I use them with my effects board, guitar, and vocals - After reading and researching I had the thought the OT could come in like a brain for the whole set up. Id use the OT as an arranger (song mode), a looper, a mixer, effects, and as a compositional tool - was my thinking.
So far I hate it. I LOVE the elektron workflow of the DT and DN. So far, the interface feels like taking a step back in the evolutionary chain. It is SO complicated and counter intuitive, ive been at it everyother day for a week and am still barely able to get it do what I can do in a second on the DT.
The mixer is just OK, maybe I havent found the setting yet, but it only mixes two stereo inputs, not four mono.
I cant figure the looper out to save my life and still need to figure out how to rig a foot controller.
The effects sound cheap to my ears
and I cant get Program Change to send to the DT or DN.
It feels like i bought a headache project. I would LOVE someone to convince me that this gets better and soon. thanks
