    Nice. I really want a Volca Sample but this thing is about a million times cooler. 
    Have a look at this chap. Really knows his gear. 


    Thats seriously cool. I'd love some of the guys doing this kind of syuff to put together a "how I did that" tutorial. There's so much going on its hard to work out whats coming from where. 

    I came across this the other week, its incredible:

    Can you play the samples on the Octatrack polyphonically?

    Do you mean like you would with an Akai- lay a sample across a keyboard and play it at different pitches.
    No it isn't that sort of device- there are loads of things that do that.
    The Octatrack is a very different sort of thing.

    It is pretty freely configurable but I do something quite similar to this guy in terms of how I use it:



    Basically I use a couple of static engines, a couple of flex engines, one pickup and one through engine.
    Each track can be edited and mangled well beyond what you can do with a traditional sampler- and you have 8 tracks of sequencing.
    You can build an entire track quite quickly with it and one shot samples can be morphed into rhythmic loops, or melodic phrases.

    It is incredibly deep- I've been using it for the last few months and I'm still finding fairly major things that I didn't know it did.
    I am the juice of four limes.
