Although the Octatrack is not designed for microtonal applications, generation of arbitrary frequencies is possible through a few different methods. The third method demonstrated for microtonality represents an unusual paradigm for modulation on the Octatrack, and further implications of this technique are examined.
0:59 microtonality with single cycle waveforms
2:06 microtonality with comb filter synthesis
4:12 microtonality with crossfader sequencing
6:50 MIDI LFOs for crossfader modulation
