So, for months I’ve been toying with one or the OP1.
I bought the Organelle M and am keen to send it back (the day after it arrived at my house). I wasn’t overly inspired by it after playing around with it for 4/5 hours,
It just became apparent that it wasn’t what I hoped it to be. Yes I knew lots of learning would have to be done but the “plug and play” features got boring for me quite quickly and I found manoeuvrability around the device a bit too awkward without having to plug it in to a screen (which I don’t have)
My studio and only room that i have with a screen I feel like a secondary one is necessary so that I could spend time with it at home, that won’t be the case as i like to keep things simple at home. If i was in my studio more than 3 or 4 days a week I’d consider not returning… It’s nearly an hour from me. The manual is way too vague for me, too much “is it this?” and “is it that?”. I’m a hands on or visual learner.
I was also disappointed that it came with an American plug, even though from a UK provider… waiting all day for it, to have to go into town to buy one as I didn’t have any batteries, Lol. Petty I know, first world problems.
I haven’t found many tutorials on getting the most out of it, yes there is good stuff on PD out there but it’s not clicking with me, again not having a monitor means of being able to dive in deeply doesn’t help, even downloading patches is a pain and it’s making me feel a little stupid, I just can’t seem to get my head around it.
As for the OP1 there is an abundance of people going through the functions at great length, or great insights to the overall functionality but hands on approach is the only way to find out really. My friend recently purchased one and it all seems a bit clunky too with less expandability so I am not sure even that right for me.
What I was hoping for is a cool instrument to have some ease of use, portable, interesting and fun which is both of these are but somehow these aren’t right for me.
Can anybody point me in the direction of effective tutorials, or other options to consider?
I hope this doesn’t come across like I hate the product. I really don’t but maybe I just don’t get it.
Thanks for your time.
