What in particular ? I’m still working on it on the Octatrack with but it is VERY complicated. As I have headaches (even without Megabreak) it doesn’t help. I want to make everything work before further explanations.
Your favourite thread I guess
If I succeed, maybe, like for Triggering Slices, but I think I enjoyed more Metronome thread.
All I can say is that Status on Overbridge is not my favorite.
We have something in common
Ok it works. Not really satisfied yet because I had a lot of bugs with part changes and recorders. Solved sometimes by replacing a trig by a new one with same parameters.
If there’s something wrong a the record shorter you loose the slices. You have to revert to saved file or do power cycle.
I’ll do it again with a new project.
So it works pretty well with 8 x 1 bar.
I can play live with crossfader for 8 bars or 8 tracks, arm all recorders, get 8 recordings, and it is automatically matrixed with the Arranger.
just as a reminder for new in this page, you have a matrix generator for a first easy (lol @sezare56) version of megabreak of doom on this octachainer https://ticticelectro.com/2017/08/26/octachainer-v1-3/
But Sezare you give us new ideas so I have to follow your headache for now…
new megamegabreak to understand …
The four boards you drawed are to use one after the other to obtain the result ?
Or are they differents solutions ?
What is the difference with a classic megabreak as the octachainer can create ?
Have fun in England bro
If I told you, it wouldn’t be a secret anymore would it?
Thats the 4 mains steps to obtain mega samples. It can be done with 4 patterns with the Arranger. The first 8 recording can be done in any way. No difference in the result, except it can be recorded live.
I said it was a secret, not a problem if it is not.
I remember this being a ballache to set up, and I was using Ableton so I could actually see what was going on and keep track of things. Best of luck to any of you doing it without visual cues
Ps anyone want to swap an AK for an OT?
Give @Wascal an OT !
I did, with the 8 x 8, but to automate it now I use start points and 2 loops in a same record so now I need visuals or tables.
As it is supposed to use the 8 recordings as slots, I thought it was limited to 8 steps, but I can use other tracks with other slices ranges to reach 32 steps for 4 bars, as I think 1/8th are easier and less clicky.
As automated records are limited to 64 steps, I plan to use tempo divisions to increase possibilities.
I also plan to automate several megabreaks on several tracks in live conditions.
I do some arcane mutterings, sacrifice a (rubber) chicken, close my eyes and hope for the best.
Or I do it in a quite obvious way… which I can’t state publicly
That’s what I did dozens of times trying to make it work with OT only. Works like a charm now.
I wish there was a software letting me set all Octatrack parameters quicker.
I planned many crasy multi Megabreaks automations !
Wrong order. Do it again.
haha, you wish! got them in the correct order and its fun, but yeah, lesson learned: spend more time for selecting breaks (and maybe break em down to 16 instead of 64). are there people who would share / trade their megabreaks? i’d be in for it!
I found a new way to plock matrix samples, less slots consuming :
For a 8 steps x 8 loops, I have the 8 matrixed loops in one file instead of 8 files.
Instead of sample locks, I plock an lfo depth with Start dest. Crossfader assigned as usual to Slices.
The lfo depth add an offset to slices, in order to play the right loops.
