I have saved up enough money to purchase an octatrack and have found someone that can sell me one. I have watched many videos and have also read parts of the manual and another guide. My question ultimately revolves around if you think the OT is worthy of me for purchasing. I can come pretty close to the artists I like to emulate with Ableton. However, I find the process incredibly dull, and uninspiring. So I’m wondering if you guys think that I can create the music I set out to make with an Octatrack. I am fine with sending audio into Ableton to mix it better, master, and fix it up. However, I am looking to purchase the OT to become my rock and foundation.
The styles I enjoy producing in:
Ambient/Drone (Tim Hecker and Oneohtrix Point Never):
Microhouse (Actress, Laurel Halo, Nicolas Jaar):
Glitch (Arca and D/P/I)
Basically I’m just curious to know if the Octatrack is as capable as I think it is at creating any genre and specifically the ones I have listed. I am incredible grateful for any response, recommendation, or advice. Thanks for taking the time to read all of this and I hope you take it easy.
