OctaEdit - Win/OSX Octatrack Software Editor


#1469

I too am very interested in this new project. When you’re ready to say something… please don’t hold back…


#1470

Now this is some great news … :open_mouth:

Please keep us updated.


#1471

Drop us a quiet update in time, … to keep the OTmk2 resale value in a reasonable price range :wink:


#1472

If you see me suddenly selling all my Octatracks… that’s your cue.


#1473

alright, thanks for the insight.
If you could suggest the workflow for this, I would appreciate it.

So basically, I would make multiple projects with the slots filled with tracks that I want and save those o for later dragging and managing via manager-module?
Downside is only that the user ends up with a lot of unused projects in his project list in a set.
Using the manager for this is no problem for me though.
I was thinking that the “playlists” or “slotlists” that I was hoping for would have been exactly something for the manager and archive-module.


#1474

I’d probably just use the a combination of the Samples and Audio Finder modules.

Create your “playlists” in a folder, or folders. So you could have a folder for “House”, folder for “Techno” etc.

Use the Samples Module and just Export required Samples and Settings from a Project into one of your “playlist” folders.

Then in the new/target Project, use the Audio Finder module and drag/drop into the Samples module and import to whichever slot you want.

noted. thx a lot :slight_smile:


#1476

I could write up some more detailed notes, or walk you through all that, maybe via messaging / IRC / something else; or on a Skype call if you wanted.

Fairly quick and straight forward though; the tricky part is just how you organise / maintain your music library / playlists on your Octatrack or hard drive (i.e. housekeeping / non OctaEdit stuff)


#1477

awesome, big thanks.
More details are always welcome. But I can see how far I get and then ask you when I get lost :smiley:


#1478

Yeah i’m waiting to ask questions once i have it installed and i get stumped.


#1479

So can you confirm there’s no behaviour differences between MKI and MKII except with button combinations related ones ?
I read just one behaviour difference related to this :
Technique: pickup mayhem

Trying to keep it tidy :wink:

Beta Testers

If you’ve put your hands up for Beta Testing, please head over to the OctaEdit forum and register there.

I am going to be centralising all beta testing / feedback / updates / enhancements over there.

As registration is manual / by my approval; if I can’t easily identify your user name, I might ignore/delete it, so let me know via pm as well.

Thanks


#1481

Totally support this one (except the babies part, of course).

Any news on that?


#1482

Unfortunately due to a family medical emergency, I will be offline for a little while.

Beta Testing is therefore on hold until I am back online.

Apologies for any delays or inconveniences.


#1483

This sounds serious … best wishes to you and your family for recovery and that everything turns out all right at the end.


#1484

Take care, Rusty. Best to you and your family.


#1485

I’m slowly getting back online / minimal access. Will attempt to push beta release out this week to all those who have signed up.

Obviously got a lot of emails etc to wade through, have an emergency dev environment to configure, get my head back in the zone first and so forth.

More news soon…


#1486

Take care, no rush, summer holidays here.


#1487

Yes, Rusty, be sure to take good care of you and yours first.

The ones and zeroes will still be fresh when you’re good and ready for ‘em.


#1488

Thanks for the update. Very excited about this release. Hope all is well and take care.
