Fate can be cruel ;)…

Ellie the Bulldog pee’d all over my bed so I did a night shift!!!

This is the result of coffee and no sleep!!!

Guys I am considering an Ipad to pair with the Opz.
Can anyone confirm if the iOS app performs decently on the ipad mini 2? I want to handle some 3d visuals with it, also share the screen etc…


#1711

The app itself would run easily as it’s pretty straight forward and not the most taxing or demanding piece of software. I really couldn’t see why the mini 2 would have any problems doing what you mentioned.


#1712

I use my OP-Z with iPad mini2 it works fine, I don’t mess with the video stuff though but no reason why it should not work fine.


#1713

Anyone having issues pairing the OP-Z with your Mac OS? Can’t get it to connect via Bluetooth, my mouse and keyboard connect fine but haven’t had any lucky with the op z using the App.

I’m heading out this morning but will give it a go later and report back :+1:


#1715

Well, I finally dove in and ordered an OP-Z. After thinking about it for a long time, the thing that tipped me over the edge is what got me early on. It’s eminently portable. In theory, I’ll be taking it anywhere/everywhere and I can sketch out ideas when they hit me, or even on the couch. Plus, I have a feeling it will sound pretty sweet through my fx chain (volante, mercury7, analog heat), so there’s that. :sunglasses:

Somewhere above is a hint: you can apparently do it using the Audio And Midi app.


#1717

I am customizing my op-z using faderfox midi controller.

It seems that op-z also has auto channel functionality like the OT, but it doesnt seem to sent CC like i would expect.

Anyone having this working with op-z?


#1718

For those with the op-z, is it possible to edit the synth engines using the app or are you limited to the 2 parameters in the app too? Also, for the synth engines that are the same as the op-1, can you transfer presets over from the op-1? Finally, given the physical 16 step limit, how easy is it to come up with patterns that are more complex than 1 bar? (I understand you can have more steps but then you can’t access them from the sequencer)


#1719

If you have a Padkontrol or another midi device with an XY pad. I highly recommend hooking it up to the OP-Z!

Beautiful music!!! Thanks for sharing.

  • Only the 2 params. Though, it seems like they are sometimes effect each other too though.
  • Not sure if you can transfer from OP-1. I know you can if they are sample based synths.
  • When it comes to sequencing long parts that i need grid level precision, i create muiltiple patterns in a project and chain them. You can save chains as well in the project so its very useful. Its a pain though cycling through a bunch of patterns to change a parameter across the synth in each of them (patterns dont share any track info). I think recording and quantizing longer sequences is very doable if they arent super intricate, though sometimes the unquantized resolution seems to get courser at 8-16 bar patterns. Very workable though
