After going from OT MK2 back to OT MK1s, one thing I missed, even more than the AED button, was the cursor texts beneath the encoders. When using the audio editor, they really do help speed things up. And rather go back to MK2, and lose the bank letters beneath the step buttons (which are super helpful for my organizing patterns), I started to think of a way to get the cursor texts onto my MK1, but in a tasteful way.
For the past couple months, I’ve been working with Oversynth on a product I had in mind.
In the design I had in mind, I was going for a similar vibe of the display on the DSI/Sequential Pro 2 and Prophet 12
This is the 2nd prototype, using the same typeface and character size as what is on the OT MK1.
I’ve been testing it a few weeks and it is holding up well. It’s ready for primetime, I think.
I’m sharing it here to see if there is any interest from other OT MK1 owners.
Oversynth isn’t too sure about interest from other OT owners, as it is a pretty specialized thing. Who knows how many OT MK1 owners are left, and of them who could use something like this?
So, if this is something you’d like for your OT MK1, let me know in this thread, and we can give Oversynth a better idea of demand.
