How would you guys go about setting up the OT to allow for most flexibility to create entire track structure in the Arranger BUT to be mixed externally?
I’m aiming for a project where we will only use analog mono sources (incl the AR and AK) for all musical parts. All analog gear is currently run through my 32 ch mixing console with a handful of hw units as inserts/sends and I’m running the master B out of the mixer into OT AB for sampling.
As mentioned, I’m intending to mix the tracks out of the OT by printing stem by stem using the cue in parallel to AB when “performing” the tracks into my Akai DPS24. The DPS24 will be used for tracking and mixing digitally into Logic that is being used as a virtual fx rack - each track in the DPS is sent to its individual track in Logic - using Softube Console 1 as inserts - and then further out for analog summing via the 32 ch analog mixer.
Now, our process will start with jamming around and creating patterns (sequenced from OT midi, AR and AK), using the mixer for eq and fx. I then intend to capture snippets/loops/etc in the OT and then start mangling and trying out variations of everything once it’s inside the OT.
So, if you were to do something similar, how would you set up the OT with parts, scenes and tracks to allow for greatest creativity and simplicity for slicing/resampling/etc? I’m hoping to be able to mix kick, bass and snare as isolated channels in the mixing process.
