The poor man's OP-1 | Casio VL-Tone VL-1 | DIY Monome Norns Reels | Digitech Polara



This is an ambient piece done with a Casio VL-Tone VL-1, a DIY Monome Norns and a Digitech Polara reverb pedal. I have never owned or played a Teenage Engineering OP-1, but it sure seems like a very fun and powerful machine I would love to own. All the sounds (but the rain sample) come from the Casio. You can hear Piano, Flute, Fantasy and Violin (in order of appearance). The DIY Norns is running the Reels script from @ its _your_bedtime, a great looper 4 track tape simulation inspired by the OP-1. The Polara is running the Halo algorithm for the whole piece.

Hi,mcpepe

Beautiful.
The synth is familiar with the sound of rain and feels natural.
I like 7:18 -7:25.
The moment it melts into the background is really good.

Thank you.

Thanks! Yes. I also liked fading out the individual tracks, and not the whole song. This really enhances some lines against other lines. And the final, almost silence, parts are always the most beautiful.
