Awesome. I did something similar with a plumbutter a few years back. It was fantastic. Best way to kickstart the day. Better than eating your Wheaties!
Do mean with others? Not for me, but I'd love to see that change.
I don't have an OP-1 but have put together various "groove boxes" for the same purpose. The plumbutter was the closest I came to something self-contained that inspired play. In the end, I passed it on since I felt like I was a bit too much exploring Peter's strange sonic world than my own but I do miss the intimacy and liveness of it. Neat that the OP-1 runs on a battery. Awesome for mountain-top jams. Loved my Tetrax for that!
I love this theme and totally agree! All the more reason it would be great to weave more play into the work-day. (Bonus points for being a good alternative to whittling away spare moments on social media.)
Thanks a million for all the recommendations (And @Random too!) To be honest I've totally written off iOS for music making despite knowing one of the Oly Noise folks and good initial impressions of Patterning. Maybe I should revisit.
