8 Track Dynamic Performance Sampler

Octatrack is designed to revolutionize the concept of sampling. Never before has so much potential been offered by just one machine. The Octatrack is an 8 track performance 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. All audio content can be heavily processed and radically transformed. Loops do not have to be restricted by tempo or tone and can always stay in sync no matter if they are pitch shifted or if the tempo of the sequencer is changed. The inflexible nature of samples is finally a thing of the past.

For the Producer
With the Octatrack you will be able to treat samples in radical ways. You will appreciate functions like changing the melody of certain sections of a vocal sample without the sample going out of sync. The extensive audio mangling capabilities paired with the user friendly interface make the Octatrack an outstanding studio tool.

For the DJ
Thanks to the immediate real time sampling function of the Octatrack you can sample your turntable and instantly play back the recorded loops. Add effects to the captured audio and use the sequencer and the assignable optical crossfader to really add a twist to your set. The Octatrack can be regarded as an extremely flexible second turntable.

For the Performer
Each of the eight stereo tracks can stream gigabyte-large samples which is great if you need backing tracks during a live gig. All samples can still be subject to time stretch and can of course also be processed by the effects or rearranged by the sequencer. The Octatrack is the most capable performance instruments available.

The Octatrack offers a variety of machines, each designed to fill a specific function. The machines can be assigned to the eight available tracks in any combination. Here some of them and their functionality are presented.

Flex machines offer the most extensive sound manipulation possibilities. A sample used within a Flex machine is loaded to the RAM memory of the Octatrack. From there it can be twisted, stretched, warbled and reassembled in multiple ways. Flex machines are unbeatable sound processors.

Thru machines do not sample or play back sounds. Instead they let the Octatrack affect incoming audio with the dual FX blocks. They are very handy in live setups.

Static machines are the perfect tool for handling extremely large samples. Samples assigned to Static machines are streamed from the Compact Flash card, thus their size can be in the order of gigabytes. Of course you can time stretch and pitch scale them as needed.

Neighbour machines listen to the output of the preceding track. Multiple tracks with Neighbour machines can form extremely powerful effects chains. They can turn the Octatrack into a deluxe effects device.

It's the best sampler in existence.Review by Octatrack fan

The octatrack is the best sampler I've ever used. Lets you perform without any need for a computer. It's more expensive than most computers, but it's better. And that cross fader lets you do all kinds of crazy things. Can't recommend it enough. It does have a pretty steep learning curve though, so be prepared to read (and re-read) the manual as you get into it. Lots of great instruction videos online as well. ... oh yeah, and the midi sequencer is amazing too. If you can afford it, buy it. (Posted on 9/9/2016)
