i want to start by saying that this community helped me a lot and learned a lot. A big thank you to everybody in here.
Now, i am in a BIG dilemma… I dont know wich one to get Octatrack mkII (grey) or the MPC One.
Why i cant choose? Because…
MPC One Pros in my opinion are: 1. I have 1500 vinyls that i bought over the years from gipsy shops in Italy so i can sample a lot. 2. The new update that lets you sequence multiple synths with a usb hub over midi is a game changer. 3. It costs less 4. I love that it is a DAW in a box and the easy way of sequencing, chord progressions etc etc…
From the videos i like the MPC features. Buuut… You elektronauts really made me curious about Octatrack. I read about it everywhere. I read good things. I read that it is hard to learn but it doesnt scare me.
I got a really good deal for the Octatrack mkII (grey) from a friend of mine because he wants Elektron Gear with Overbridge. He is willing to letting it go for 700 euros. It is in great condition and works well. Now this price is driving me crazy. I know that i will never find a deal like this again. But in the other hand i really want to have the MPC features and sample mangling. And i like the MPC workflow much easier than the Octratrack. Unfortunately i can only fund one of them beacuse i recently bought the Digitone Keys.
Sorry for the long post and PLEASE help me make the right decision. Peace and Love from Albania.
