Since initial release of OP-1 we’ve updated the OS numerous times, adding new features and effects with each new version. We’ve decided to produce a new collection of preset sounds, showcasing all sonic aspects and modulation capabilities of OP-1. This will include both synth patches and drum kits, totally refreshing the internal factory preset sounds and bringing it up to 2014 and beyond!
This is an invitation to you to participate in the re-creation of the OP-1 factory sound library! We want to collect eight patches per engine. Are you a sequencing drum kit master? A keyboard virtuoso with extreme patching skills? Or perhaps a bass connoisseur with low end expertise. This is YOUR chance to shape the future and overall experience of the OP-1. No official compensation is offered and the content needs to be exclusively made by yourself.
This is a collective experiment and everyone is invited! New sounds will be collected, a selection will be made and the final result will become the new factory preset sounds in OP-1! Old factory presets will be made available through the Library, as a free, downloadable sound pack, and the new sounds will come preloaded with all new OP-1 units.
How to participate?
Create and save your sound in OP-1. For drum kits you can use the OP-1 Drum Utility if you want. Export it, name it and then upload it to us, along with some info about the sound, your creative process and whatever else you want to share.
