never got the exact same results.. but:
Yeah, you can get weird glitchy stuff, that keeps on revolving:
Having great fun with triggered recorders, that automagically chop up stuff..
here is the basics :
use 4!! trackrecorders (for argument sake use track 1 to 4)
place triggers .. as an example..
trackrecorder4, records 4 steps of main-output starting on step 01
trackrecorder3, records 4 steps of main-output starting on step 05
trackrecorder2, records 4 steps of main-output starting on step 09
trackrecorder1, records 4 steps of main-output starting on step 13
put a flextrack on track 5.
place triggers like this:
step01 P-lock to recorder1
step05 P-lock to recorder2
step09 P-lock to recorder3
step13 P-lock to recorder4
Use scenes, to mute whatever your playing on octatrack, and unmute track5
Because you record on a difrent time, then you play it back.. you can do all kinds of reverse / repitch / filter . whatever trickery on track5.. without things going bad..
its neat... I usually use it for instant breaks.. Its one of the techniques I describe and use
