Hello OT users!
Having a hard time figuring out the answer to a seemingly simple question about basic Octatrack functionality.
To setup the question I guess I should probably explain the workflow I’m working towards: I want to use the Octatrack as a live looper to capture streams of audio coming out of several other pieces of hardware gear — these would be routed into the OT through a mixer. Once in the OT I would layer, process, chop up and manipulate, etc.
Once I’m happy with the results there I want to ultimately transfer the eight audio tracks off the OT and into Ableton for final processing and mastering, and maybe adding some additional VST sound sources.
Which brings me to my question for OT users: What is the process for dumping files from OT to computer (in this case a mac)? Is it possible (and easy) to dump all eight tracks of audio to the computer, and would those audio files sync up to an Ableton project set to the same BPM?
I have googled a ton and seem to find a lot of information about transferring samples TO the OT, not so much info about doing the reverse. Any thoughts?
