OP-1 comes with three great sequencers, all of them created for instant live tweaks. Like the classic Pattern sequencer with the possibility to change direction on the fly. Or you may shorten the played sequence to only one repeated step that you can move around within the pattern. Super easy and ultra creative.
This key let's you instantly explore OP-1's classic Tape tricks. Very useful when you do live mixes or feel to mess up the playback. Also used for basic tape loops. Use the Reverse key to change the playback direction or the Tape Break to stop the tape in a classic sounding way. All Tape tricks also works great while in recording mode.
Mic / FM Radio
The Mic / Input key is located next to the built-in microphone. Pressing this key let you switch to any desired input source. Select Microphone, Line In, the built-in FM radio or Out to In. Using the FM radio for example, you may record anything you hear directly to tape, direct to the sampler or why not use the radio signal as a modulator with the Element LFO. You may also use the OUT to IN option to bounce all tracks with effects, EQ etc to one singel track.
Controller / Disk Mode
The combined Album / Com key have two different functions. The Album mode let you record anything to a dual sided album. Use this to print your tape to a stereo track with your final mix applied. Then switch to Com mode and connect the OP-1 to your computer to transfer the file and mail it to a friend. The Com mode is also used when you need to turn your OP-1 to a MIDI controller.
