Manipulate Arranger with your foot :)
Idk if it’s been said, and there’s probably a work around, but I would really appreciate for slicing to include a fade in option to avoid clicks.
Good call. There are more important things before that though.
If you turn on “Dynamic Recorders” the recorders can access any free memory and then “Reserve Recordings” becomes like a fail safe to make sure you can always sample. You can then reserve less or none and also be able to make very long samples…
A pickup machine records to the recorder buffer of the same number as the track number the pickup is loaded on. If there’s a pickup on track one then any flex track can play it by simply assigning “recording1” as the default sample or it can be sample locked per trig on a flex track playing a different default sample…
You can make for example several different flex tracks all playing “recording1” with different settings for each. One sliced, one reversed, one gated with trigless envelopes, all different fx, etc… When you record to the pickup track all instances of “recording1” playing on flex tracks get updated in realtime.
Page button + trig 1/2/3/4 to skip to that page would make me feel less like I’m using a type writer. Also it would be faster to use it to quickly create or take away pages
Had a dream last night where they added a wavetable synth to the OT and you could morph thru the tables with the crossfader… Guess it’s back to sleep for me!
Wake up and try this :
Trig copy like A4MK2
Copy one trig multiple times by holding the trigs you want to copy to.
Add p-locks to trig 1 -> copy -> hold trigs 5,7,8,12 whatever -> past -> trigs 5,7,8,12 whatever now = trig1
Right now you have to hold each trig individually to copy to
Do we know if there´s anything that surely will be added/improved with an upcoming update?
There is no guarantee that there will be any further updates for the Octatrack.
For mkII users, this is a complete bummer. The machine isn’t even that old!
If you haven’t, try messing with the audio editor start/end with looping sample. You can zoom in and change the length to be extremely tiny and then scan the waveform… Much more precise than flex page parameters, but can’t be automated…
I know, but technically it’s the same machine (that’s why it’s called Mark 2 and not v2) with just some (cosmetic) face lifting done. Elektron declared the OT feature complete long ago. But they changed their minds and brought conditional trigs to it afterwards.
So in a way: it already happened once
I´m about to buy a MKII and it´s horrible to hear that.
want to buy mine?
I will just dump it then
Please! We had trig conditions update for MKI (and MKII?), it was a great surprise. Wait for a V2, or buy a Model:Samples to be sure to have updates!
Are you from Spain?
We’ll get by…somehow
Elektron could start periodically taking away features from the Octatrack as other devices get updated and it’ll still be more capable for quite some time…
