OT: Beginners compilation of forum posts. 2 Years, 10 Months ago
Heyo,

I just got my OT delivered today. So I spent a while today gathering informative posts that might help a beginner (that's me) out with the OT. It turned out to be more usfull than I thought, so I decided to post it here for other beginners. It only goes back till Sept 1st, but I wasn't sure when the OS was updated so I decided to stop there.

Please add anything that seems missing, or might be helpful.

Thanks, for all the wicked posts, great forum, great peeps.

No, thank you!

I have been wanting an OT since before it was released... when I realized it was over a YEAR ago and I still want it jsut as bad, it was obvious I had to join the club.

Thanks to early adopters for putting in so much effort!

Hah, thanks man. I had a good couple of hours last night and it was a load of fun. Loving it so far.

Love your videos, it would be nice to see one on song structure. ..Maybe thats not exactly video worthy, but I think a lot of peeps scratch their heads about that.
