For anyone familiar with how the Teenage Engineering OP-1 faux 4-track tape recorder works: can the ER-301 function in the same way? I do not own an ER-301 (yet), but I’ve research a bit, and cannot tell whether the 6 track recorder, dub looper, or perhaps some other unit/module that I’ve yet to discover matches this type of “workflow.”
I do not get along with rigid step-sequencing; and I’m aware the ER-301 is not a sequencer.
That said, for studio/recording purposes, I vastly prefer a more basic (see: old skool) approach to composing music wherein I record a section onto a track --> loop it while I record or overdub alongside said track --> then, bounce/cut/copy/fade/etc among other tracks, as needed.
The OP-1 is “limited” in this manner, and these restraints (personally) provide me large amounts of flexibility and inspiration when creating a tune.
I’m wondering if any of the current or planned ER-301 units function in the same way.
Thanks so much for any insight,
