I'm preparing a performance where I have to rely on a few atmospheric backing tracks, and I wonder if anyone has experience with using heavy and long samples with the OT?
I have a 25min long, 300MB track that I want to load so it plays continuously throughout the performance, and I wonder if this is prone to problems?
I've been reading the "Some Thoughts on the Octatrack" PDF, and in there it's mentioned that streaming high quality long samples "puts a heavy burden on the cf-card and by doing so,
you can run into timing problems when the card is cheap and not fast enough.
Therefore, although streaming can be used, my personal attitude is that I avoid
it as much as possible, just to be on the safe side."
Anyone has experience with this?
