Musikmesse 2010: Elektron reveal full Octatrack details
After the long awaited announcement of the Elektron Octatrack here is everything you need to know about the product that stole the show at Musikmesse 2010.
The Octatrack is designed to revolutionize the concept of sampling with Elektron claiming that it acts very much like Ableton but in a box.
The improved Elektron sequencer and the ingenious audio engine bear witness with unparalleled potential being offered by just one machine.
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 is 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 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.
Features 8 stereo tracks, 4 audio inputs, 4 audio outputs, headphone output, USB 2.0 port, compact flash card, optical fader and improved electron sequencer.
Also includes realtime pitch shift and time stretch, real time sampling, 2 effect blocks per track.
With an estimated release in Q4, 2010 and an aimed street price of 1200 Euros the few months between now and November will seem very long to innovative musicians the world over.Posted on 25 Mar 2010 14:33 to category : Instruments News
