Percy Penguin and the Midnight Surprise

More fun with the OP-1 this week. I am really in love with this machine, I think i might submit a cheesy reggae track next week. Or maybe I'll try and write a surf song on the OP-1! That would be cool... stay tuned!


This track features some samples of me playing guitar directly into the op-1 I was really surprised how nice it sounded going direct from the guitar to the audio input.

Definitely getting some cool sounds.  I wouldn't guess that they originated from guitar.  I think merging this with your surf stylings would for sure be a rad experiment.  But I'm down for cheesy reggae, too.  smile

Love this, man. The guitar comes out so nice and clean, too.

Very light and silvery, and it rolls along really nicely with that LFO pad underneath. I didn't even notice the guitar until I read that ^^^ it fits perfectly with the other sounds. Very nice.

Very chilling effects you managed to bring out of this OP-1. Nice track. Sounds fine to me.

The ondulation in the sound makes me think of actual waves, very soothing sound, and I gotta agree the guitar comes out amazing big_smile

Lovely guitar goodness.  Always good to hear.

Those wavey guitar chords sound so soothing, especially for times like these.  I too look forward to an SurfOp track smile

I did write a cheesy reggae track, but I shelved it because I was too embarrassed to make it public.
