Hey guys. I’m planning to take my setup to the next level and loop a midi cable from the DN to the OT whereas my OT was master for almost one year. I discovered in a topic I could send MIDI CCs, Notes and more to genuinely merge the octatrack and the digitone together creating a whole new kind of instruments.
I have my OT sampling from all 5 sources and I wanted to make a conditional trig on D#4 so that the digitone as a master could send imprevisible recorder trigs on different channels. I have been able to set this up but the MIDI trig doesn’t seem to activate the OT Track Recorders.
However, it sounds dope because it is now possible to set track recorders to specific jobs at a glance just hitting the around the D#4 trig on the DN, but I wanted to enjoy conditional trigs to make things less predictable and after triple checking both of the menus I am starting to believe it is not possible.
I’ve been able to reproduce this situation on midi loopback on the octatrack but I would have loved to do so on the digitone.
One more subsidiary question : is it normal to lose the ability to pre listen to the track sounds when a Midi Out is being plugged in from the DN? I can take it out for a few seconds in my studio to taste a preset without loading it to the pool or the active track but it’s a little bit tortuous as I am one of those DAWless psytrance weirdos lol
Thank you very much for your help, I always appreciate to read long topics where ideas are coming from the whole globe… Except I feel like one expert knows the answers around!
Have a nice week and happy knob tweaking my dudes.
