I’m looking to finish my setup with adding the missing piece. Happy with both the M:C and the 0-Coast. But I need something which works as a connection, the center of my setup. Sound wise, I’m missing glitch/clicks/cuts. Portability is important, as well as MIDI (for sequencing external gear). Line-in is definitely a plus (less cables, more options).
What’s on the list right now …
OP-Z: just got one (but could still return it). Pretty happy with the workflow. Line-in module allows for adding FX to the 0-Coast. No stem export as far as I know. Build quality is the big question mark. Besides, I’m not sure about TE as a company.
Blackbox: seems pretty interesting, although I’m not a big fan of screens. But I guess it could work well within the described setup. Didn’t find any convincing videos though. Sequencer is probably not as good as DT/OP-Z. Song mode sounds good.
Digitakt: seems the best in terms of sound (for me). Not as portable as the others. Not sure if the BB fits better because of long samples.
Any recommendations? Other ideas?
