Free Octatrack Tutorials list

My apologies, don’t want to be unfair :relaxed:
This videos helped me a lot & I’ve used only freely accesable info.
How can we solve it?
I can put links in files names, or as tengig said collect links to the videos instead, or I can open the folder to everybody for adding & editing.

I reluctantly sold my MK1 a few years back, but I just got an MK2 and my god it is like I’ve never played before. Thanks for the list I will definitely be using them over the next few weeks.

Thanks homie!
