Best birthday present ever. Congrats!
I bought one a few weeks ago after buying a DN a few weeks before and really enjoying the workflow and features. I was initially put off by the limitations of the sequencer, but now I actually find the ‘limitations’ a plus, as they push me to be creative. Plocks/Sound locks, trigless trigs and the scenes/crossfader the OT are a ton of fun.
I found the workflow and capabilities on both the DN and the OT really intuitive and refreshing, which pulled me out of a very long dry, uncreative spell, much like going from Cubase to Live 8 did several years ago. The fresh workflows and ways of working helped inspire me and kill lazy habits. I’m now spending at least 3 hours a night on music again, and cursing the clock when I have to go to bed…
I’ve only scratched the surface of the OT over the last few weeks, but the number of happy accidents, and rabbit hole time tunnels I’ve fallen into have me enjoying it immensely.
