Will there be Octatrack MK3 anytime soon?


#1

Hi guys,

I know, this is probably gonna be pure speculation unless someone from Elektron themself joins here.
What do you think… will there be an Octatrack MK3 this year?
I am not so sure anymore because I see Elektron approaching a new circle of customers with all their cheaper products… actually all of their latest product line sells well below 1000€.

I think Elektron is like Valve and can’t count to 3 lol

Soon they’ll come out with mk 2 pt1, then mk2 pt 2…


#3

I wish but doubt it tbh.think there concentrating on cheaper but easy to sell boxes at the moment.we can only dream😁


#4

Yep it’s coming out in April.

#6

Probably tomorrow. Good stuff happen on Fridays.


#7

What the 1st day


#8

Nah.

We’re going to get the OctaModel:SampleTrack first!


#9

Were already on the OT V. Where you been?


#10

Yep, but only available until midday!


#11

OktaTakt


#12

Supposed to be out on Tuesday.

It would make sense to me that they do a big (OT Like) Digitakt next as the architecture already has OB etc, I think OT will stay as it is and you may get OT sized Digitakt that does most of what OT does and eventually replaces it.

There is an x% chance of it being true.


#16

Absolutely possible. Absolutely no chance of ít happening soon.


#17

Yep.

They are pretty tight lipped, so don’t count on it.

OTMK2 is a beast. If you don’t already have one, go ahead and get one and make some music with it.

It wouldn’t make business sense for them to replace the mk2 for at least 2-3 more years.

And even if they did mk3 it- I doubt there would be serious updates to the firmware for the update.

Of course, there’s equal likelihood that it will go the route of the silver boxes than getting a further updated iteration

I hope there won’t be a MK3. More a kind of Octatrack 2.0 with new features.
