The Octatrack is a Midlife Crisis Sampler

The Daydream Sound

"Is the Octatrack Still Relevant in 2020? Or is it just for the old heads? It’s got all the knobs and buttons. The kind things old-school producers like. I think physical detail appeals to middle aged artists. Remember G.I. Joe action figures. They had the most detail ever! So many features packed into one toy. Guess what? That’s exactly what the Octatrack is! In this video we use the sampling engine of the #Elektron #Octatrack to transform outdoor sounds into…. well something. Let’s see what we get!
