Made with OT and SP404
Missed my man so I made a jam sp404 in hand
“EP” I made on the OT a few months ago. Started as a joke but it’s surprising how easily the OT lends itself to working in this style once you turn off quantizing: https://hotpissofficial.bandcamp.com/album/real-rap-beats-1
Yeah it’s really awesome especially it’s sampling abilities I’m in love with it. I’m certain people are gonna be using this as the 2000’s version of the SP-1200 it’s a hidden gem for hip hop. I’m gonna take a look at your tape. I’m working on making my own. Getting lyrics and instrumentals together is so hard!

That DT thread is here (below), if they both become either/or then one might argue they may as well be merged - it’d be best to keep this topic as OT-centric as possible, maybe worth amending the opening post to make that point
Octatrack and SP-404
i think they should be merged into hiphop with elektron machines
I don’t mind, no horse whatsoever in this race, it’s just that there was a post above that was flagged OT (no pun intended) as it was all DT - both devices may yield different results and that may be interesting to the respective owners
Hi felt like a more hip hop Octatrack based thread would be helpful. I view the Octatrack as an SP-1200 on steroids and badger milk and is kinda a hidden hip Hop gem. Having a dedicated OT hip hop would maybe help more of us come out of the woodwork.
I love your music dust motes gain I inspiration from you weekly!
I found myself free styling to this it’s some dope shot dj shadow like but also got its own thing I enjoy it a lot.
Where do you get these cool, dirty drum sounds op? From breaks?
Do you play everything in by hand and leave it unquantized?
I can’t listen to your songs they won’t play
Hmm I use the master compressor over the whole track I compress my drums a shit done double compressor and then I’ll use the sp sometimes too I sampled a lot of drums bro I am a perfectionist it’s really pissing me off lately lol because my sounds sound good my arrangement isn’t. I finger drum it all on the OT
Thanks very much! That’s kind of you to listen - I was def digging the Ras track. I’ve only just got into him and was taken back by the news. Rip.
Drop what you’re doing go listen to https://open.spotify.com/album/7bFZKUqRjnOkY3fnsPxM4L?si=X1bzfGclRyeEuQCj6SWPbg if you can it’s called LA Series 3 by Ras G and samiyam. Breakfast blunts is great
Had a sp404sx, sold it with my DT to buy an OT… kinda want one again to partner it with my op-z. How do you guys use it with your OT?
Meanwhile, some good ol’ octaboombap by yours truly:
Nice vibes man.
I’m using the OT Mk2 to trigger patterns, and also one shots when needed. Mainly just that at the moment but I’m gonna give it a go via the cues as an ext fx box some point this weekend.
Probably will put a couple of full tracks on and see how I go with running it through the fx and then importing it back into the daw as well.
