As much as I hated my Octatrack MK2 for the 1st few days after initial purchase, a few months later of constant banging I fell in love with it to the point where I decided to buy a companion for it… the Analog Four (also MK2). Mainly as a replacement for a couple of Eurorack modules. It’s on the way now but I am already thinking about how I can utilize both in tandem so I have a few questions:
I really like OT sequencer, especially arpeggiator and the ability to mangle it with LFOs. Is there any major difference between OT-A4 sequencer/arp? I was thinking of using A4 synths as Thru machines on OT, but I am not sure if that’s the way to go…
CV/Gates… can I control A4 soundengine with Modular Sequencer? Can I use both, external sequencer and the internal one at the same time?
This question is mainly to the most experienced audience - I guess it will take me a few months until I discover most of the features however, what is the most optimal routing/setup for A4 and OT? How are you guys using them both on stage for (mainly) improvised sets?
