COMPLETE LIST OF SAMPLE PATCHES:
African wood xylophone. Turn the reverb ON and explore the higher ranges (+3 or +4) for rain like sounds or lower ranges for deep impacts.
A funky instrument, recorded with a RE20 mic and using a compressor to enhance the woody tone. You can increase the attack time and add reverb to get a sound reminiscent of old jazz records.
Recorded on location in a church, this large bell has plenty of power. You can also create some deep hypnotic sounds (octave -1) or metallic hits (+3/+4)
Recorded from the casio SA-21. This mini keyboard has a fantastic lowfi charm, and its strings featured here are a great example of it! Add a touch of vibrato (LFO ON) and perform filter sweep (FX ON, red encoder)
Recorded on Fender Road Worn Precision Bass. A percussive and classic sound! Add a touch of bass boost (FX ON)
Recorded on an wood flute. the LFO is programmed to reproduce the natural vibrato/tremolo of a musician. Add delay (FX ON)
This instrument is an unusually mellow melodica! The soft sound of a key being depressed at the beginning of the note add great realism. For total fun, hold and play the OP-1 just like you would with a traditional melodica : )
Recorded on a mid-size mechanic metallic music box. The organic resonance and metallic overtones add to the realism! For the creative minds, add delay (FX ON), LFO, and check both extreme range of the patch while holding a note (octave -4 and +4)
Orch Hit class
A powerful and very classic orchestral hit sample. Play simple, two notes chords for a rich and splendid sound. Record it backwards with reverb (FX ON) for a complex riser.
Recorded on a Hammond B3. Use the nitro (FX ON) to filter out bass and high frequencies for a typical vintage organ sound. Turn the LFO ON or OFF to use a perfect vibrato sound.
A very jazzy preset from a Hammond organ. Add tremolo (LFO ON) and delay (FX ON) for great leads.
Recorded on a Farfisa organ. A very bright, cutting tonality, perfect for modern arpeggios and lead work. Reduce the reverb (FX OFF) or the vibrato (LFO OFF)
An ensemble of violins, violias, cellos and basses.
Use the overdub recording function on two hard-panned tracks over different ranges (octaves -3 to +3) for a nice stereo realistic sound.
Reduce delay (FX OFF) or add a subtle decreasing tremolo sound (LFO ON)
Synth lead tough
This patch uses a sample from the Korg analog Monotron. Use of the unison features and a touch of delay turn it into a powerful lead instrument. You can change this (in the synth engine, second screen (2) press shift + blue encoder) to POLY for some beautiful grainy analog pad sounds.
A typical world instrument beautifully rendered on the OP-1. Programmed with a very subtle tremolo and a touch of reverb.
Toy sheep FX
A very experimental patch: based on a sample of a small musical toy that makes the sound of a sheep, this uses the CWO effect controlled by Gforce to create organic effects. Have fun twisting the OP-1!
A short sample of a tuba played stacatto in a large studio. Add a slapback delay (FX ON) and play octaves to simulate the sound of a brass section.
A simple and efficient way to add a classic touch to your beats. Check out various registers (-4 to +3) and add effects and vibrato to create organic evolving textures.
This short vocal pad is another more classic sound that will bring you back to the 80s! Add a touch of delay (FX ON) or explore the low registers.
Recorded in the studio with a straw, a bowl full of water and some great microphones. Use the Gforce to increase the level of reverb. Explore the deeper register for some great underwater sounds!
