I’m wondering how differently somebody else might set up or use this gear. Interested in other ideas i guess if you’re bored and you’re imaginative.
Setup: octatrack mk2 is my main mixer, master tempo, master effects, before going into UA apollo and then to abelton which I’m very new to. I run a digitakt for drums into OT1+2, and analog four into OT3+4 with novation ultranova as midi keyboard. side question: should i get a different midi keyboard? also, does this setup necessarily mean I can’t chain midi from OT thru DT thru to analog 4? because I have to use midi for keyboard. does this make sense?
OT runs digitakt as thru machine with two effects, and runs A4 as a thru machine with a neighbor track below to get two more effects slots.
microphone I do using digitakt even though OT would do a much better job i presume. i sample using DT but then sample it on the OT where it’s used as a flex track. tracks 5,6,7 are flex tracks i can record live into or play back samples, track 8 is master where i run an EQ which turns the high end WAY the F up because seems like everything has way too much low end muddy mids all the time when i play on other speakers. i also run a reverb.
compression at the end with UA software
