I work at BigCorp, which is having an internal contest to build songs for its hold music. This has finally given me the impetus to figure out how to actually make songs (rather than random sketches) with my newish OP-1. This one was built with an OP-1, along with a couple Pocket Operators (Arcade and Rhythm).

How are you liking the OP-1? I've been lusting after them for a few years...but I just can't rationalize those kinda bucks for what I would use it for. It just looks so FUN, though.
Sounds great.

Oh yeah, totally love the OP-1. It's fantastic. I've come to accept that I like using the pocket operators as drum machines more than I like the built in drum sequencers on the OP-1, but the many many synth engines are great to play with. I put off picking mine up for about two years before I finally decided to spring for it (for the same reason you've been hesitating), and have had no regrets.

Pretty wild! The arps that come in circa 1:30 are insanely good.

The first time I touched an OP-1 I wrote an original melody, sweartagawd.
