Very much in love with my new friend (Octa MK2), but I hit a little snag. Coming from AR and A4 mk1s I am very much used to building songs on the fly while the sequencer is running.
After lots of head scratching I finally realized the Octa doesn’t allow copy/paste pattern to a new track unless the following: The sequencer is Stopped, or you are on the new blank pattern, then paste it. (please please correct me if I’m wrong on this).
Anyway, I’m stumped as to how to copy/paste the pattern I’m on to a new one without stopping or getting the small (smaller with practice) silent gap when moving to a blank pattern.
Is there a workaround? If not, does this mean the Octatrack should be viewed more as “build it first then perform” versus “build it while you perform?”
Fingers crossed for an OS update to change this but until then, I would love to hear anyone’s ideas/tips/tactics to get around this.
