Was hoping someone could help me. I’m currently using a thru machine to apply effects to an incoming synth, and then i’m sampling the resulting sound with a flex machine on the next track assigned to sample the thru machine track.
This isn’t ideal for me for two reasons
- Using two tracks per riff takes up precious tracks
- When i attempt to overwrite a sound stored in a flex machine with a new sound coming through the thru machine, the flex machine does not immediately cut out when the new sound is being recorded, instead both sounds play a full sequence length before the old sound is replaced by the new.
Ideally what i want to be able to do is have effects on a flex machine, with the incoming audio going through that track only. I.e using the octatrack as an external effects unit for my synth and sampling bits and pieces as i choose, without the sound changing the moment i hit record.
When a flex machine is recording audio it applies its effects to the audio, but i cannot find a way for these effects to be applied while not recording, unless using an additional thru or neighbour track.
I’d really appreciate any feedback anyone has on if this is at all possible or any work arounds some of you may have come up with.
Apologies if this is a long winded way of asking a simple question, still getting to grips with the elektron lingo…
