Thanks Mistercharlie and Open_Mike for pointing out corrections to my process
You’re both correct, I just tried it out and REC+PLAY isn’t necessary, just PLAY. Also, hitting the REC1 key a second time ends the recording, so no need to hit REC2 twice (it didn’t make sense to me either, but I thought I read somewhere that was the way it worked). I’m correcting my original step-by-step with these updates.
I don’t consider myself an OT expert by any stretch of the imagination and definitely welcome your feedback. Last week I was about to take a sledge hammer to my OT I was so frustrated, now I’m able to get FLEX looping consistently working so things are looking up
I’ve been working with synths/samplers/etc since the mid 80’s and until the OT I’ve never had a piece of gear that was so flexible yet so frustratingly maddening and potentially so rewarding - all at the same time
