I’m using a Prophet 5 to record short samples into the Octatrack and I noticed a significant drop in quality when playing through the Thru or Pickup Machine compare to directly out of the synth’s phone out or a mixer. It seems to lose a lot of the hi frequencies. I also noticed that the quality is a little better in the Recording Buffer.
My Control Memory settings are:
Flex Format 24-Bit
Dynamic Recorders Yes
Recorder Format 24-Bit
Reserve Recordings R1-R6
Reserve Length 16s
Is it normal to have this degraded sound quality in the Octatrack or do I have a faulty hardware?
