Okay, i’m on day 2, having had a memory warning on day 1, i’ve had a read of the manual, it seems to me on first glance that Dynamic recorders should be on, all the time ! and then there’s no point to reserve any memory, or am i missing a subtlety that’ll become evident on day 3 ?
i have an analogy, wrt the A4 i think it’d be excusable on Day 1 to think, oh 4 voices isn’t enough, but by day 7 you’ll know full well that you can do a huuuuuge amount with those four voices - am i going to get this epiphany wrt the 80Mb sampling time any time soon ? will it be a distant worry, i’m more likely be working with phrases and textures than short drum hits so i may get less mileage from that material, but, will it work out fine + i’ve yet to explore static machines ! ?[/quote]
well yeah - dynamic recorders are on by default, HOWEVER from the 80-ish MB of RAM you have to subtract everything you’ve put on your flex sample list and the recorder reserve and what’s left in that equation is your recording memory.
so if you clog up the RAM with flex samples, you’re bound to run out of memory fast.
befriend the static machines as soon as possible and do try to befriend the midi sequencer - that’s a very powerful tool once you get the hang of it.
in my setup it looks as follows. MIDI: OT is master -> A4 -> TR626 -> Electribe -> vermona DRM1 mk3 -> computer running Reason -> nord Electro.
AUDIO: every instrument I have is fed to a minimixer and then to the A4 and then to OT’s input pair AB; input pair CD is reserved for a turntable.
WORKS LIKE A CHARM.
as for epiphanies with the OT - you’ll get one as soon you understand its quirks and the workflow intended by design.
cool - thanks for info
- as an off-topic aside, how does the 626 fair when you vary tempo on the OT, mine is in its box, but i recall it only puts out midi tempo in increments of 2 ie 118,120,122 so does it slave better ? think i might have to give it a whirl to see what that 12bit grit sounds like might bend or sell it as the OT buy was a stretch (no pun intended)
