What’s up Dub - I was a pretty hardcore MD user and looooooooved it. I was making music almost everyday with that thing. Albeit not the most ground breaking or mind bending, but music non-the-less. And that thing had a true CNTL-AL. Twist it up, save the craziness to a new pattern and continue down the rabbit hole. The DT’s Control All doesn’t have the same magic as the MD’s.
Same for the OT when it was fresh. Id toss some sounds in it and just jam away.
The new Elektron stuff though has me spoiled though…
Anyway, I think I’d get a MD before an OT only because the MD is so unique and inspiring. Easy to use to.
And I do apologize for categorizing the OT as vintage. Yea, you can still buy a new one with a warranty.
