I’ve had this extreme curiosity and urge to purchase an Elektron Octatrack MkII for the last few months.
In general, I am quite obsessive about samplers and sequencers, and spend much more money on these machines than on keyboards or other equipment.
Although I own and use an AKAI MPC1000 with JJOS2XL installed to sample and sequence, I am wondering wether an OT could improve my workflow, after getting through the learning curve, or if it wouldn’t make any difference and/or improve what the MPC1000 can already do.
I know the OT is a much more sophisticated machine, but has anybody experimented with both machines together, or had noticed the improvement with the extra features and tech the OT has over the MPC? Or any way they could work together?
