OctaEdit v2 is here.

What’s new in OctaEdit v2?

  • Updated GUI / UX
  • Octatrack Mk II Support
  • OSv1.30 Support
  • Conditional Trigs
  • A myriad of new functionality and improvements.
  • Updated / rewritten manual in progress.

How much will OctaEdit v2 cost?

OctaEdit v2 will be a free update to all existing users.

Will you be adding in function X, Y or Z?

Now would be a great time to let me know if you have any feature requests; or additional functionality that you would like added.

Release Process and Availability

OctaEdit will be progressing through the following release stages:

  • OSX Public Beta
  • Windows Public Beta
  • General Release ( OSX and Windows )

I will be staggering the release / availability to ensure I don’t get drowned :expressionless:

Will be pushing out OSX public beta and requested licences later this week.

Whilst this is occurring, OctaEdit will be unavailable for purchase. This is so I can focus 100% of my time and energy on bug fixes and enhancements.

I appreciate your patience and understanding during this time.

More news soon…

Thanks,
Rusty

OctaEdit v2 divides the available Modules between “Main Modules” and “Sub-Modules” as follows:

Main Modules: Project, Samples, Sequencer, Arranger, Manager, Chainer, Arp Designer, LFO Designer, Options and Support.

Sub-Modules: Audio Finder, Library, Analytics

The Sub-Modules are displayed to the right-hand side of OctaEdit.

These can be optionally docked as such:

Or can be undocked entirely:

When un-docked, the Sub-Modules can be displayed as an optional pop-out:

excited


#1354

i’ll be grabbing this as soon as it’s available. just bought a OT2. super stoked


#1355

The layout looks much more intuitive though I’ve barely used V1 as is. That was quick BTW :slight_smile:


#1356

That’s what my lady says to me :expressionless:


#1357

Feature request : ability to add slice points into a wave file instead of using octachainer ( which needs separate files) . Doing it by hand or importing from another app is fine with me. Ableton transient/markers , audacity labels , stuff like that.

Ability to view / filter notes by conditional trigs, in fact any parameter that can be applied to a note.

Ability to ensure no one is expecting overbridge for any current octatrack as it’s never coming and was never supposed to be .


#1358

This looks indeed impressive and I’m genuinely curious.
Just got a OT MKII so for what reasons would I get this? Better overview or does it do something that OT does not?


#1359

Many, depends on your needs.
It can do unique things or things that would be nightmarish without it.
I think the best for me is projects management, combining several projects in one, reorganize samples, create a project template modifying all banks, copy parameters…

I hope @Rusty added functionalities to Slice / Chainer such Megabreack. :wink:

I wouldn’t have time time to use OctaEdit this summer so I guess I’ll buy it this autumn / winter.


#1360

wow @Rusty, those 14 month flew like nothing.
Thank you, will try later.


#1361

A feature i would love would be a peak vu display. I’ve been putting together a live set and as i usually use kicks (or beats with kicks) on track one i mute everything else and go through each pattern to make sure this kick/drum track is around the same level. An added visual display would speed up thus process.


#1362

Maybe a stupid question but I wasn’t able to find it on any screenshot or video - when editing samples, is there any way to zoom in so I can place any markers more accurately?


#1363

For sure there is a zoom, but I couldn’t see it in that screenshot either…
It can be the white bar under sample.

“censored ugly old screenshot” :slight_smile:


#1364

Doesn’t that rely on playing the audio ? Couldn’t you just feed output into ableton / daw / etc.
This is an editor for the hardware device , not overbridge replacement ( streaming audio data via USB into daw etc ) .
Or I’m misunderstanding your request …

I may dive back into octatrack , nice to be able to inspect / manipulate data like this , unsure if some of the finer details would ever get into overbridge for digitakt / rytm / analog 4 / digitone


#1365

YES, you made it, congrats, amazing work!!!

Can´t wait to see it in action!


#1366

Yeah I might be making an impossible request, i thought that if sample management etc is available that maybe there is some way for the software to gauge the dry sample db and/or post fx db.
Admittedly i know nothing though.

Octagas…
