Polyoptics: OctaTest – Octratrack, op1

November 14, 2011 · Posted in Uncategorized 

“Testing out the octatrack. The loops are taken from a track I had laid out on the op1.
I am still figuring out the work flow, but in this case, after assigning the loops to tracks, I used the scenes functionality to play out the track live instead of patterns.
The octratack has freed this tune from being locked up in the op1. Next time I will get into patterns and banks more.”

The Octatrack is an 8 track performance sampler. Recording of sounds is a breeze thanks to the intuitive user interface, but the fun really starts once the samples are inside the machine. All audio content can be heavily processed and radically transformed. Loops do not have to be restricted by tempo or tone and can always stay in sync no matter if they are pitch shifted or if the tempo of the sequencer is changed. The inflexible nature of samples is finally a thing of the past.
