The Elektron Octatrack Digital Sampler and Sequencer has been designed to revolutionize the concept of sampling. The improved Elektron sequencer and the ingenious audio engine make static sampling a thing of the past. Never before has so much creative potential been offered by just one machine.
Realtime Pitch-Shift and Time-Stretch:
The Octatrack is an elegant sampler. Recording of sounds is a breeze thanks to the intuitive user interface, but the fun really starts once the samples are inside the machine. Loops are now completely elastic. They will always stay in sync no matter if they are pitch shifted or if the tempo of the sequencer is changed. Single sounds can be molded into any shape or form. The static nature of samples are finally a thing of the past.
The Compact Flash card compability allows for huge amounts of samples to be constantly accessible. The USB port is ideal when transfering sample libraries between your computer and the Octatrack. The optical fader can be assigned to any of the parameters, adding a wealth of live control possibilities.
The Perfect Companion:
An Octatrack, a Machinedrum and a Monomachine will be the ideal gear combo. The Machinedrum takes care of the rhythms. The Monomachine is perfect for all things melodic. The Octatrack adds set-and-forget live sampling and manipulation of preloaded audio material. These machines will basically be all that is needed to produce great tracks or to really take a live performance to the next level.
