Creating Polyrhythms with the Elektron Octatrack

Published on Sep 10, 2015 Carl Mikael's Cabinet of Curiosities

"By using polyrhythms you can create unpredictable and less repetitive rhythms and beats. I’ll make my case in the tutorial using the Elektron Octatrack sequencing a Nord Drum 2. Concepts are transferable to a range of other sequencers and synths, of course.

The content is hard to explain verbally - I use graphs and examples extensively.

I work mainly in the midi sequencer of the Octatrack, working heavily with the scale settings - if you need to refresh your skills on that, have a go at the Octatrack Manual in chapters:
Scale Setup (. p 93 in manual v 1.25)
The Midi Sequencer (p. 111 in manual v. 1.25)"
