NEW FORUM: OPERATOR-1.COM

Some words from the community:

A few days ago, the community of ohpeewon.com went down. Being a strong community we reacted fast. KrisM set up a freeforum and the together KrisM, Yoof, dimi3, and lymtronic, started to rebuild. Today we have rebooted. Over a hundred have returned to join us at operator-1.com. It is familiar, and with greater control we hope to develop more. Sadly you must reapply but today it is easier.

We continue to hope we will get the previous database of information back from the owner of ohpeewon. Thank you all!

Teenage Engineering is not officially involved in this forum but we approve and support it fully! Thanks guys, you rock!

2014 OP-1 Factory Sound Update

image

Background

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!

Action

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.

Upload your contribution via www.teenageengineering.com/contact

Head over to operator-1.com and follow the discussion. Quality over quantity please so keep it elegant! Don’t flood us, send us your best!

Preliminary Timeline

June - Announce plan. (This!)
