I own my octavos for 4 months and played 2 gigs with it + recorded some stuff. Basically I was thinking that I am maybe not a pro user, but at least a good student. I was too optimistic probably…
After my last live show I made a summer brake for studio routine and a few days ago I wanted to practice my new live set with MnM and when I tried to make transition between tracks with crossfader, nothing happens… (Flex machine is recording the T8 Master channel but when I am moving crossfader to play a loop it is not playing it or muting?? It is definitely recording because i can see the loop in edit mode and even can save it or play via func+yes)
I said “Okay, I will just go to watch this famous video one more time and repeat all things that Tarekith made ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uAD1MzZgsMM ), maybe I forgot to set some settings.” I repeated it in exact way (even a order of tracks, his hands position, whatever…) but nothing happened.
I repeated this process a few times but no result. I noticed that I Can not play any recorded loop dynamically even with external gear. It is very strange cuz I played live show with those banks and settings but suddenly this trick stoped to work at all!!
I made everything I could (rebooting, OS Upgrade e.tc.) But MY RECORDED LOOPS SIMPLY DO NOT WANT TO PLAY(((
So here I am at Elektronauts asking your help guys. Maybe some of you can write short (maybe even long) Checklist of setting (Including system settings) for Traditional Crossfader Trick? I don’t know what to do… This trick was a brilliant and was one of the most frequently used function in my workflow and now it’s gone((( If I will not fix it probably I will need to find some external shitty looper or even buy new octatrack (If it is a problem not in my hands). HEEEELP!!111
P.S. This topic could be really helpful because I know a lot of people who had some problems with that trick. Mentioned check list, can save nervous system of many beginners for sure…
