1.Octatrack MKII — At a glance [from Elektron]
Octatrack MKII is an eight track performance sampler and sequencer, designed for both live performers and studio producers. Thanks to a clever combination of internal tracks, MIDI tracks, in- and outputs, and sequencer tricks like conditional trigs, Octatrack MKII is perfect as the centerpiece in any rig. The sample engine, which features time-stretch and pitch-shift in real time, is capable of radically transforming and reshaping samples in an instant.

2. Elektron Octatrack MkII - Odd Time Signatures [from Carl Mikael's Cabinet of Curiosities]
The Elektron Octatrack MkII with its sequencer features, solves creative challenges when working with odd time signatures.

Different track lengths and tempos together with conditional trigs makes eccentric rhythms possible. Break out of the four-to-the-floor paradigm.

3. Octatrack MKII Cuckoo Heavily Edited Performance Jam Song Thing [from cuckoomusic]
The Octatrack MKII/ MK2 has landed. And it's really really nice. There are new buttons all over, and new dedicated buttons. The OLED screen helps view the screen from any angle.

4. Octatrack MKII meets Yamaha TX802
The OT MKII sequences all 8 parts of the Yamaha TX802 and the I and II outputs of the TX802 is fed back in to the OT MKII where additional processing happens. All sounds are coming from the TX802. Also, the whole main output of the OT MKII gets resampled and the fader controls the balance between the dry and recorded signals. The 8 MIDI channels of the OT MKII that sequence the TX802 uses a lot of different tricks to get variation in the playback, as the same pattern is repeated over and over, combined with manual Quick Mute. Probability on steps, Random LFO modulation to Arpeggio speed, different pattern lengths and multiplier speeds are amongst the functions being used to create varying playback.
