I’ve got a nice little gig coming up, and I’m thinking about doing a kind of hybrid DJ/live thing with only my own material. But I’m also going through a really hectic time moving house and studio(!!)… aaaaah
My question is; now that it’s possible to set a fixed tempo per pattern, is the OT a bit better for DJing with? In the past I didn’t like how it stretched whole tracks out (time stretching) - I like playing vinyls/CDJs in a more natural sense, where you slow it down and the pitch lowers… I think it sounds a lot better - I don’t like time-stretching on entire tracks (it’s obviously very cool as an effect for production;)… But now that time-stretching can now be avoided by setting the pattern tempo to the original tempo of the piece, I’m wondering if the idea is worth re-exploring.
Is anyone here doing something like that, specifically using Static Machines for playing back longer pieces, and setting the pattern tempo to the correct tempo for the track, so that time-stretching isn’t really being used?
Apologies for the basic question! My life is kind of in pieces while I’m moving… So I thought I’d ask here:)
hope the Elektronauts out there are doing ok in this mad world!
