Apologies beforehand, this is probably the 9000th time this question’s been asked around here.
I am looking around for a drum machine / sampler, for a new music project/band.
Industrial / Noise / Sludge / Punk, and whatever floats in between.
I’m looking for a machine that can fullfill live duties, maybe combined with vocals.
To write songs together with a guitar/bass player, and eventually play live…
Have been drooling over Elektron gear for the past few years, and am finally able and mentally ready to dive in.
I mainly dabble in harsh noise, and have limited expierence with synths/FX.
Most of my knowhow comes from just trying out stuff, being amazed and having fun.
Elektron gear always scared me a little bit, because of the steep learning curve.
But now that the idea of starting a new band has become a concrete thing, I am ready to dive in.
So please, can someone advise me on what machine would suit my needs best?
I know the OT can be used as a drum machine, to create songs from scratch, I’ve seen people do it. At the moment, I’m leaning more towards the OT side, mainly because of the huge live potential.
Am I overlooking something?
Thanks a lot, in advance.
Hope this message finds all of you well.
