I’ve had my OTMK2 for about 4 months. Things are coming along slowly, but they’re coming along!
My artrock/postpunk band, Prayer Flags has a gig Jan 2nd. We only play a couple times a year, because our drummer lives in London at the moment. I asked the band if I could do an electronic set, either first on the bill, or even between band sets. I have about 35 minutes worth of music prepared so far. Still deciding how to structure things as I don’t want to make things too easy or too dificult for my first live gig with this machine. Today was my first day prepping stuff, so I just imported mixes of finished tunes into sample slots and can play the slots, If need be. Been adding effects and playing keyboards along with the tracks as well. It’s a start, but I know I’ll want to add more involved elements as I rehearse…open to suggestion for strategies!
Also, do any of you use an outboard compressor/limiter to keep your levels consistent, or do you find the OT’s built in compressor does the trick? If so, any recommended settings?
This thing will evolve over the next few weeks and I’m excited to learn some new tricks do pull off a great live set.
Thanks for any help offered!
