We are delighted to announce a special, limited edition of the Octatrack MKII.
The Octatrack MKII Anniversary Edition is part of our celebration of the Octatrack and its release in 2010. Limited to 350 units, and featuring a striking combination of the aesthetics from the MKI and MKII iterations, the Anniversary Edition is loaded with unique factory content and items. This is a special edition of an extra special machine.
From 2010 to Eternity
Since its first appearance, over a decade ago, the Octatrack has been mangling its way into the hearts and minds of live performers and audiences across the globe. Discovering the perfect sample is only the beginning with this 8 track dynamic performance sampler. Twist it, dismantle it, distort it, and carve it into something uniquely yours with a lineup of deep and creative features.
The Octatrack MKII Anniversary Edition comes with a custom-designed 32 GB CF card - loaded with a bunch of exclusive artist content to mark the occasion and only available as part of this limited run. This new audio ecstasy has been specially put together with the help of serial, long-term Octafriends such as Andreas Tilliander, Skinnerbox, Jogging House, Headless Horseman, Inhalt, and Arc Rae. Never-before-heard slices of time, straight out of the box, to build your own sonic prophecies.
The Anniversary Edition box has its own distinct design, complete with a celebratory interpretation of the classic OT logo on a sturdy corrugated fiberboard exterior shell, ensuring everything slips together perfectly. The box features custom artwork by Tokyo-based graphic artist m7kenji, showing a sweeping tapestry-like blend of Octatrack pixel graphics and other logograms, icons, and scripts. A full-size poster of this design is included as part of the package, ready to adorn any studio wall.
