Falling deeper in love with OT.
Here’s the setup:
- Analog mixer aux out to OT inputs a/b
- OT in studio mode, w/ CUE outputs going out to line-in channel on analog mixer (not aux return)
- Track recording a/b with flex machine with same recording buffer loaded, volume 100 CUE, 0 main
- Record trig on step 1
- Normal (playback) trig on step 4
- Send other mixer channels to aux
Audio from the mixer is routed to the aux, which comes to OT and is recorded in real time, playback trig on step 4 plays it back delayed by a dotted eighth. Aux send level on mixer line-in channel where OT is coming back controls feedback level. This makes for simple over unity feedback levels (which you know you like, dub-a dub dub).
Free delay, with no FX engaged on OT at all. However, if you do put FX on the OT track they are inserted into the delay path(!), so you can have two FX + “delay” on a single track (with no OT delay FX).
‘Shimmer’-ish effects can be had by toying with pitch/rate on the track, filter FX nice for taming frequencies on the repeats, LOFI a nice choice to throw in for increasingly degraded repeats.
Had done similar things with SRC3 CUE recording, but the immediacy of having (aux send) knobs on the separate mixer to tweak feedback levels in real time is nice.
Take care, love you all.
