Unstoppable - a Krautrock inspired jam on the OP-Z

Published on Mar 19, 2020 Payton Carter

"Check out my music here -

I started this jam trying to make something in the vein of Tangerine Dream. I'm not quite sure if it ended up sounded anything like them, but there's definitely some Krautrock influence here.

I'm loving the OP-Z. I'm used to manually changing patterns and sessions on the Novation Circuit, so I thought I would give myself a break and just chain everything together for mostly automatic playing. The workflow on the OP-Z can be a little frustrating at times (especially when trying to work with anything longer than 16 steps), but I think it's best suited to quickly get ideas down and not worry too much about the details. It's lightning fast in that regard.

The new reverb engine is loads better for atmospheric/ambient sounds, which I tend to utilize more. I also really like the new "Analog" sound engine. I'm using it on the arp track here. The only problem is that the two new sound engines each take up a spot in the engine selection, which means if you allow all 8 engines on a track, you only have two spaces for user samples. Surely there's space to allow for plenty more, especially with that (unutilized?) 1GB chip. Please TE, help us out here!"
