This an answer to a question raised in the “im afraid to resample” topic.
For a long time, I thought that the OT was a complexe machine not so easy to use compose new tracks … until a got a simple idea : designing a template where a few banks would be preconfigured for specific tasks. It is then possible to use the transition trick to “move” the audio from one bank to an other.
For instance, if I work on pattern A1 and need more drum tracks, I will sample it, and use the transition trick to bring it to the bank P which is pre-configured as a drum machine. Once I find a nice beat I will resample the pattern and again bring the audio to the pattern A1.
Here is how it works :
-Bank P is pre-configured as a drum machine. Part 1 is set with 808 samples, part 2 with 909 samples.
-Bank O is pre-configured to work with sliced loop
-Bank N = monosynth using single cycle waveforms.
-Bank M is used to sequence external gear using a single midi-track and to mangle the audio using FX using T1 (thru machine) T2 (neighbourg). T3 & T4 are used to sample T2 on the fly and to slice it.
-Bank L : is used to sequence external gears using 8 midi tracks
-parts 1 of bank L-P are set with default settings.
-Bank A-K are normal bank.
On all banks the transition trick is ready to be used:
-T8 = master track, and is used to record the current pattern.
-T7 is used to playback the record buffer of T8.
-scene 1 is used to switch between the Track 1-7 (current pattern) and the T7
(last pattern sampled).
It just made my OT so efficient and fun to use !
