OP is dope, I had 2 in my life both sold because the headphone jack noise, but its the most fun I have had with an instrument. I wouldn't mind getting another one but not at the current prices now.
I would have personally because we have similar taste in music get the Maschine Plus standalone, since we're talking about the upper echelon of prices.
I owned a MPC live, came from the 2000XL making boom bap but I just don't gel with the Live, I still use my MPC 1000 JJOSXL to make beats. The great thing with the Live would be tracking out audio to my daw which is a pain in the ass.
However, OP-1 is a great choice mate.
Thanks I got a ton of questions, but im assuming that once I learn it, I will be able to just go in and make an efficient workflow?
Some reviews were saying its a good machine to set up the skeleton of your work, and with post production you can get amazing music
Im new so its expected but it's def mostly experimenting with sounds atm, i probably should have got the mpc live, but I am really looking forward to taking an mpc approach on this machine, which is probably ridiculous, but I love the things I saw that it can do
I thought I would really need to watch music theory videos on YouTube in order to learn how to make music, but I was surprised that I was able to start making music and recording it within an hour. Reasons why I didn't get many of the other machines, as they seem more studious
