Hi, I love the spontantiy and inspiration I get from working with various analog gear and the octatrack, however I find that I have little control over my end result. The idea is to jam out ideas and record to a reloop tape (sd card) and then, hopefully spend as little time as possible with it afterwards in DAW (more cutting, arranging the ideas).
So the issue is that I have little control of the Octatrack output, both in terms of metering, eq and compression (which I don’t want too much of). I use the master track, but even so, it may have too many limits. Are there any good (outboard) solutions for getting a more “finished” result? This way I could monitor and adjust as I jam, instead of endless tweaking after the idea phase.
