Hiya! I’m new to the Octatrack World, and have set up our machine but have a question about why it seems to be automating playback and record on certain tracks?? Can’t find anything specific in the manual so thought I’d swing it to you folks.
I have set up 3 Thru tracks (T1, T2, T5) which are running live feeds from a keyboard, drum machine and synthesiser (all working in real time and looping live). Then I have 3 Flex tracks which are set up to record from the 3 Thru tracks, so it’s in these tracks that I make my loops from.
My question is, why does it appear that there is some kind of automated record happening when I press [PLAY] ?
Here’s what’s happening from all tracks on [STOP] - all tracks have the square next to them:
As soon as I press [PLAY], T1, T2, T3 and T6 get the +> sign next to them, which means it’s active for recording right?
Then after the machine has run a lap through the 32 step sequence, it goes to this:
T2 stays stuck on the +> for ever. Which means it is constantly recording and looping over itself right? It’s just a thru track so it doesn’t affect the stuff I’m recording, but I have no idea how I made it automate to this and would like to know how to undo it.
Answers any one??
Thanks in advance for your wisdom.
