I’m dreaming about an Octatrack a bit and have some questions.
Let’s say I make a sequence on another Elektron box and I want to record it into the OT. Obviously I would sync MIDI, but how “quantized” (for lack of a better term) does it record the sequence? For instance, can I tell the OT to only play one loop of a pattern, to start recording when the loop starts and stop recording when the loop ends? Or once my audio is recorded, do I then have to go into the screen and set the start point, end point, all that stuff? If so, how tedious is that? Also, does the OT know the tempo of the sequence I just recorded so it can time stretch it across different BPM?
Nextly, do you guys do this? What sorts of fun things do you like to do once you’ve recorded, say, a RYTM or DN sequence into your OT? How do you mangle it after it’s in the box?
