Is the op-1 worth it? Want to make beats, mix songs together, some techno, some lofi. Basic stuff like that.

      this offer is just 900 bucks (its used) and i could resell it if i dont like it, so it would only cost me a few bucks after all, if i dont end up loving it

      can you do any of that in a daw, currently? if not then learn in that first

      i have ableton but its so unpractical and unnatural. i hope the op-1 would make it all so much easier to learn. is this just cope?

        get a midi keyboard instead. or try out ableton's push device if you absolutely hate using a mouse and keyboard for somereason.

        or... here's the kicker... give up.

        we need less people making music, not more. it sounds like you dont actually enjoy making music and just want to copy something you've seen online. you want to do it because it looks cool, and you want to also look cool.

        also, learning music production gets rid of all the magic. when you know how aphex twin made a certain sound, it make aphex twin less godlike. you feel me? keep music magical for yourself, stop trying to make it.

          OP if you get a midi controller make sure the keys actually feel satisfying to play on
          a lot of them feel like shit, might want to test something in store first

      op can. they're just too retarded to realize they could spen $1500 on a realy solid laptop instead of a really gay and underpowered sampler.

      a laptop + a daw will do significantly more than an OP-1 can, for the same price.

      op is some rich kid who picks up hobbies and drops them after a few months, though. they are the target market for teenage engineering.

      i play piano and a similar experience, where i can translate ideas directly with my hands. a keyboard and mouse just doesnt do it for me.
      here an example of what i mean

      with a mouse and keyboard you cant really do that

        >touchscreen
        Plug in an Arturia keystep for the playing. Everything else, I sure take a touchscreen where all the functionality is on the surface, over a box with menu diving every step of the way. And far better than the disconnect with staring at a laptop screen and manipulating something somewhere else with your fingers.
        I'd prefer a box with evereything on the knobs obviously, but so far had no luck with that in a reasonable price range.

          so the op-1 would be ideal for you, if it wasnt so expensive?

          so get a fucking midi keyboard like i suggested... do you know what a midi keyboard is? are you too lazy to google before responding? or waste your dads money on a gay 4 track meme recorder, because why not?

          i already have one actually but want so switch to something where i dont need a laptop connected. just explaining why i hate the mouse and keyboard "for some reason"

            okay, but how are you goind to arrange these ideas you made into a finished song? and how are you going to upload them to the internet to share?

            everyone who uses an OP-1 still bounces their work into a daw and finishes it there, its not an all-in-one machine your brain thinks it is.

        you can work faster and better in a DAW. dont buy this thing. its a meme. if you dont enjoy making music on a daw, you dont enjoy making music. move on and find a new hobby.

            go join a band. stop self-producing. "beat music" dies this decade, anyways. youre already too late to that party.

            every band needs a keyboard player. buy an interesting synth or use VSTs and a midi keyboard (more flexible, cheaper, and you can download other user's patches for more sounds on the fly).

    Most of these hipster units are made for YouTube appeal cause they sorta advertise themselves - an OP-1 doesn’t really do anything very well. They synth engines are mediocre, the drums are too, there’s not really any post-processing to do with your recordings, etc. Something like an MPC would be a lot better as an all-in-one workflow (but I totally get that it doesn’t have the same visual charm or appeal)

    Absolutely not worth it. You could get a Polyend tracker or again mpc one for far less. A fucking electribe 2 is competitive again an OP1 and you can get them for $200 probably.

    Or just put it into a laptop.

      but compared to a piano such hardware is already much more natural than clicking on a mouse. but i guess youre right after all

          Do not get an OP-1. First of all, it might look slick when you're watching redmeansrecording, but you're just going to get overwhelmed by how much there is and how many buttons there are. Plus, at the price you're going to be paying for a used one, you might as well just buy a new MPC. Instead you should just get a used SP404 or a PO-33
